1v1 goals back to back (20 mins)

Set Up: Place the goals back to back, but with enough room in between them to play 1v1. Have boundries for the play that are appropriate for the ability and athleticism of the players.

Instructions: The white attacker dribbles at, and hopefully past, the black defender. Once they have engaged, then he or she can attack either goal from either side. But once committed to a goal, that is where the attacker must go. Play until the attack is finished. If the defender wins the ball, he or she can attack the other goal. Put a time limit on the play to control the energy level of the players. As soon as the attack is finished, the next pairing goes. Have one team attack for a time period, then switch roles after the time is up.

Coaching Points: Attack with speed. One good move is better than a bunch of slow ones. Commit to goal with conviction. Use the appropriate finishing technique. Be creative in attack. Manage the work to rest time so it is appropriate for the training phase of the players.
