3v2 transition

3v2 Transion Game

Set-up:

Two goals on opposite ends, adjust space according to players age and fitness demands desired. 2 teams begin on opposite sides next to their goal.

Description:

Attacking blue team of 3 starts with the ball versus 2 red defenders.

If attacking team shoots, scores, or keeper catches it, all 3 blue attackers come off, the 2 red defenders add 1 and become the attacking team of 3 and attack opposite end, while 2 new blues come on as defenders from behind the goal.

If attacking team fails to score and defending team wins the ball, they can attack with numbers down to the goal and try to score. Order of who comes on will always be the same regardless of outcome in the action.

Progressions:

1. If defending team wins the ball they play ball back to the keeper to restart and the keeper plays the new player coming on to begin the next attack.

2. If goal is scored in 6 seconds or less its worth double. 5 secs? 8 sec? adjust accordingly.

Coaching Points:

1. Transition to attack

2. Attack/commit defender to use numerical advantage then play free player.

3. Expliot moment of transition and defending team is not set/organized (most vulnerable moment).

4. Finishing attacks at speed, every action should finish with a shot on goal. Decision making under pressure. What was best option?
