(7v7) 1-2-2-2

Formation: 1-2-2-2

Why Use it?

Simplified shape, great for players that are just sarting to play. With two players in each line players now have to start to work in pairs. Having two players in the forward line gives a natural high target, due to their advanced starting positions. The lack of naturally dedicated width could also improve player mobility as they now have to start to figure out who needs to create this and when to do so, as a coach start to think about where the width will come from and how to coach players to find this width.

(7v7) 1-3-2-1

Formation: 1-3-2-1

Why Use it?

Three defenders provides a solid backline. Two Central Midfield players without higher wide players mean that the Central Midfielder’s have to work on going beyond the ball as well as under it. Lots of space in wide areas due to the wide player’s deeper starting position, the wide players on the back line can now start to work in the attack, this will jelp develop players for 9v9 and 11v11 that can be comforatble in a flank position, being responsible in the defensive and attacking phases of play.
