2v2 + 2N (15 mins)

2v2 + 2N to two small goals or dribble across the end line.

Grid: 17 x 25 yards. (Split bigger small-sided field in half)

-Teams play 2v2 directionally either to small goals or by dribbling accros the endline. Encourage players to not always go forward but to go wide as well in case nothing is on.

First team to 7 goals win. Losing team becomes neutrals on outside.

Scoring: 1) multiply number of switches to goal scored. (example, if a team switched the ball from one neutral to another 3 times before scoring, then they would be awarded 3 points for that goal)

Coaching Points: Don't force it in goal if it's not on, instead look to play wide player and find space. General shape in possession should be a diamond. Wide players need to be moving and always supporting the play. How can players on field make field bigger when they have the ball?
