3 v 2 to 3 v 2

Setup: Field is 50 x 44, divided into 2 halves; equal teams [number can vary]; [balls, pinnies, cones, goals]

Activity: GK on offensive team roles out to one of the backs, who play 3 v 2 in their defensive half. When the chance arises, they look to play into the striker in the other half of the field. When the ball is played into the attacking half, one of the defenders can enter in to make it a 3 v 2 advantage for the attacking team. If the 3rd man running in gets the ball, they need to finish with 1 touch. After an attack, the 3rd man runner comes off, and a defender for the other team enters their defensive half to start activity in the other direction.

Progressions: [a] add wingers who can only link up with the strikers, with a defender still entering in and attacking the cross

7 v 7 + Wing Players

Setup: Field will now be 75 x 44 divided into 3 zones, teams will play 7 v 7 with GK and possibly wing players [balls, pinnies, cones, goals].

Activity: We add two central midfielders and the object of the game is the same, defenders can move into midfield and midfielders can move into attack to provide overloads, but we keep all 3 defenders in the game now. Opposing wingers can come in and attack crosses from the opposite side.

Progressions: [a] touch restrictions in zones, [b] remove zones and play free.

Coaching: link up play, movement off ball, creating space to shoot, good defensive prinicples, technique of passing and crosses, quality of clearences and headers.
