4 v 3 Gauntlet to Goal (30 mins)

The Session:

2 Teams; 1 keeper. Divide field int 1/3s as shown in picture (width of 18 or a few yards smaller). Balls all begin at top of gauntlet. 3 Defenders in box 1 & box 2; 1 defender along with GK in box 3 to begin. Defenders may only defend in their box once the ball is played in. 4 players begin game by playing into box #1 & work to posses & play forward into box #2. Same for box #2, but once they have broken past the 18yd line into box #3 they may shoot at any time. If defending team wins the ball, they are allowed to move freely between boxes #1-3 to possess the ball for a set # of passes to get a point. If attacking team wins ball they immediately attack the goal again. If ball is played out of bounds, play restarts at top of gauntlet with new group.

Progressions:

1) Begin with smaller play - 3 v2 in each box & 1v1 w/keeper in 6 yd box. Move the boxes closer to goal& make the width just beyond the width of the 6 yd box. So the 3rd box is a 1v1 w/keeper.

2) Limit # of touches by attackers/defenders once they win the ball to possess.

Coaching Points:

Attackers:

-Awareness of space & runs forward

-Combination play

THE SESSION:

Ball out of bounds on sideline, normal throw in. If Red teams scores on blue team, blue exits the endline where the green team is & the green team then enters field & attacks the red team and red jumps to press. Defending team receives 3 points for pressing the attacking team, & winning the ball back in their attacking 1/2 to score a goal. If the red team shoots & misses & ball goes out endline, the red team exits that endline & the green team brings a ball on to the field. The blue team turns to defend the oncoming green team.
