Intro 3v3/4v4

(1) Younger Group 4v4/3v3 (GKs not neccessary, up to you). 15 minutes. Add any conditions you want.

Middle Group, free play to begin. Conditions, must always leave 1v1 in opposite half. If they struggle can prescribe which player must stay as striker and 2 that can switch between staying as defender.

(2) To progress remove one of the GKs, play 3v2 in the first half of the pitch and 1v1 in the other half. Defending team are locked into zones. The attackers try to break past the 2 defenders, this can either be a pass into the striker or a through ball to a midfielder, they then attack 3v1. If the defenders get the ball they run it over the opposite end line.

To progress allow recovering midfielders and rotate teams. 30 mins.

Part Practice

The goals are now moved to the top and bottom of the pitch.

(1) The players are split 4v3 + GK. The team of attackers start in the central zone and the defenders are in front of the goal. The GK throws out to the strikers and they attack. If they score within 6 seconds the goal is worth 5 points. If the defenders regain possession they run the ball into the central zone for a point.

(2) To progress start with a striker between the two defenders and have one defender in the central zone. The game starts again with the GK who throws out to the attackers, once they have taken their first touch the game is live and the aim is to attack quickly before the 3rd defender can recover. This may then go to 2 strikers.

Rotate positions and roles. 30 minutes.

SSG

The set up remains the same as in the part practice (4v3 + GK per half). To begin the blue GK rolls out to the defenders who play unopposed into the strikers (who can drop into central safe zone if they wish) and the attack starts. The red strikers can now recover and the aim is for the blue strikers to finish before they lose the overload. The game then resets and plays from the red GK.

Rotate positions.

To progress, the GK has the choice of playing into the defenders, who are now opposed, or straight into the strikers. Once the ball is in play all players are free to move where they wish.

Finish with free play. (30 mins)
