4v4 +2 Targets

Description

The aim is to get the ball from one target player to the other. Target players should be encouraged to move up and down the goal line in order to create a better passing angle. Once a player completes a pass to the outside they switch and become the target player.

3 points are awarded if the team can get the ball from one target to another with 4 touches or less.

4v4 +2 wide

Description

The principle of the game remains the same as with the target players except now we play to goal and there are 'keepers. The target players are now wide / supporting players, scoring after playing a give-and-go with one of these players awards two goals.

5v5 - Switching Play 1

Desccription

Teams try to score in either of the 2 wide pugg goals. To start with, cone off the centre line of the field. The wide player and defender must stay in their own half, the middle man is allowed to roam. Emphasize the importance of still being an option and the necessary movement within the half to allow play to be switched easily.

If it's too hard (maybe for the U10 girls) make it so that the defenders are only allowed 3 touches but cannot be tackled.

If it's too easy, a touch restriction could be implemented but definitely remove the cones.

Coaching Points

- Keep your head up and know where your teammates are

- Play away from pressure / traffic at all times - even if you are close to goal

- Wide players must stay wide for this to be successful

- Find the Center Midfielder at all possible times
