Intro SSG

Players are split in to 4 teams and play 4v4 on two tight pitches. The emphasis is on pressing from the front and players are encouraged to win the ball and counter attack quickly. If possession is regained, the team now in possession has 6 seconds to score. If they cannot do so they must retain possession for a minumum of 3 passes before they can attack the goal. Offsides are played from the half way line.

Part Practice

The goals are now removed from the are and the players place a Target Man from each team in an End Zone. The aim is to get the ball to their Target Man to score, the ball is then recycled to the opposition. Offside is played from the half way line. Rotate the Target Man every 2 minutes.

To progress if a goal is scored the goal scorer must rotate with the Target Man. This will help players work on their decision making of when to press and when to drop and consider delaying tactics whilst temporarily outnumbered.

The teams now join together to form an 8 v 8. The pitch remains the same and teams play end to end. One team (blues) attack the goal and the other (reds) score by passing the ball to their Target Man.

The pitch is split into 9 zones to allow the players to have reference points to assist their strategy for pressing. Players are allowed to pick their formation and consider when to press and when to drop and implement sliding, screening and cover. Offside is played from the half way line. Teams will swap ends at half time.
