Skill Practice

The playing area is set out 25x25 yards. In each corner there is a small 4x4 yard square and a 6x6 yard square in the middle.

To begin each player starts with a ball and the aim is to travel from one corner square, through the middle and to another corner square. Each player is challenged to do a different turn each time they enter a corner and a different skill move through the middle without colliding into anyone. Players can be challenged to use certain movement/manipulation patterns.

To progress there are now a team of taggers in the middle who have the ball in their hands. The game lasts 1 minute and the aim is again to get from corner to corner, via the middle, for 1 point. If the defenders, who are locked into the middle zone, throw their ball and hit their opponent's ball then the dribbler's score is reset. Rotate defenders.

The next progression is to introduce tacklers. If they gain possession of the ball they must dribble it to a corner as quickly as possible and leave it there for the dribbler to regain. This can then be developed to a loss of possession for the dribbler and a rotation of defenders. You can also unlock the defenders and add extra defenders to make the game harder.

Finally, the game can be played as a 1v1/1v1v1/2v1 match.

SSG

The playing area is the width of the penalty, up to the half way line. There is a big goal at one end and two small goals at the other end, with a half way line to lock players in.

The set up is GK + 3v2 in the End Zone and 4v3 in the Middle Zone. The defensive unit must play 3 passes before playing out of defence, into midfield. If the strikers regain possession they can score immediately. On the second pass in defence the opposing midfield can decide to send an extra player to press (GK+ 3v3) leaving a 3v3 in midfield. Once the ball is in midfield the team must link 1 pass before scoring in the 2 side goals.

The attacking team (reds) must make a minimum of 2 passes in midfield before they can pass into a striker to attack. They may also send a supporting midfielder to make a 3v3. To progress this can be made into a through ball to a midfield runner or a dribble into attack. Also, a recovery run from midfield may be added.

Rotate positions.
