3 Team Finishing

Organisation

The group is split into 3 teams, in this example it is red v yellow, with the black team on the outside as target or bounce players. When 1x team wins, the losing tram swap places with the outside team

Intention

Recreate goal scoring opportunities that look and feel like the game. This practice encourages a lot of close range and 1 touch finishes. 

Link to 11v11

This is all about creating and scoring goals.

Observation

This practice will be fast paced, with lots to take in. Focus on the moment of the players to evade the defender and get the extra 'half a yard' to score. There are also lots of psychological returns here. How do the players cope with winning, losing, mistakes etc? 

Progressions

Two diagrams show how you could vary the distribution of the team on the outside. In diagram 1, they could work on passing and combinations, in image 2 it allows the team in possession to pass forward with more ease but perhaps less realism.
