First to 9 wins (25 mins)

First to 9 wins!

30y by 30y area, 5 v 5, 2 gk's, 4 small goals (5y), 2 large goals (8y), Footballs (as many as you can get).

This is a scrimmage I have done a few times at the end of sessions that gets the players communicating, concentrating and most importantly having fun!

You can decide what you play to, but what I do is play to 9 points, however players cannot score more than that, if they do they go back to 0. You get 3 points if you score in the small goals and 1 point if you score in the large goals against the goalkeeper's. Because more points are given for scoring in the wide goals I am looking for players to look to play wide at every opportunity.

The good thing about this is that it starts to get players thinking about tactics, who is defending our goals? who are the wide players looking to score in the small goals? and you can start to see who the leaders are in the group.

Great little game!
