4 Goal Game w pases (20 mins)

4-Goal Game

Equipment:

- Balls, Bibs, Cones

Objectives:

- An all-action game encouraging collecting attacking and "total defending", in addition the game highlights supporting play, good passing, ball control (first touch in particular) and ball possession skills.

Organization

- Activity is played on 1/2 of a field at the BSC

- Divide players evenly (5v5, 6v6 or 7v7 etc.)

- Place 4 small goals (3 to 5 yards wide) five yards in from from each corner

- Score in any of the four goals from the front only

- Ball can be dribbled or played through and possession retained

- Also, 4 or 5 or 6 (dependent on age and/or ability) consecutive passes count as a "goal"

- Any interception or deflection by the opposition breaks the sequence of passes

- Goals through cones can be scored at any time in a passing sequence and multiple goals

- Passes or "cone" goals scored in any possession

- When ball goes out of play re-start with a kick-in or throw-in (based on age)

- Phase in the rules when introducting game

Coaching Points

Attack

- Emphasize that maintaining possession gives best chance of success

- Advise players to be prepared to hold ball (screening/shielding) if passing options are poor

- Encourage switching play - particularly if one goal becomes "marked"

Defense

- Emphasize importance of positional play to prevent easy scoring in any of the four goals

- Encourage everyone to work hard (to create transition and win the ball back) - otherwise opponents will easily maintain possession

- Insist that the opponent with the ball be "hustled" (pressured)

Challenge:

- Play in "sets" like tennis. First team to score six "goals" wins the set. Play a best of 3 or best of 5 series

Att vs Def w counter (20 mins)

Attack vs Defense with counter

Equipment:

- Balls, Bibs, Cones, Goals (Counter)

Organization/Implementation:

- Split the players into 2 teams - attackers vs defenders with a target (counter) player standing in each counter goal

- Attack vs Defense - the attacking team tries to score in the large goal (with GK)

- Defenders score by winning the ball and passing to the feet of the target player standing inside the goal

- As soon as the target player receives the ball they immediately initiate counter-attack

- The attacking team will always be numbers up on the counter-attack

- Only one target (counter) player can attack at once - as soon as the attacking team loses the ball they must ensure that they have a target player standing inside the goal

- Play the game functionally to start - players that are attackers should play on the attack and defenders should defend

- It is up to the coach to decide if he/she wants to have players switch roles (attackers defend and defenders attack) after a certain amount of time

Gauntlet w counters (20 mins)

Gauntlet with counters for defenders

Equipment:

- Balls, Bibs, Cones, Large Goal

Organization/Implementation:

- GK in goal. Split the players into teams - attackers and defenders

- Organize field as illustrated with a starting zone, 3 defensive zones and a red zone

- Start off 1v1, then go 2v1, then go 3v2

- Attackers attempt to advance through the gauntlet by beating defenders

- Defenders can only defend in their respective zone

- If the defenders win the ball they attempt to pass the ball through one of the counter goals at the half way line

- Be sure to rotate the attackers and defenders giving players an opportunity to attack and defend

Coaching Points

- In numbers up situations, the attackers need to decide (or make better decisions as to when to) - DRIBBLE or PASS

Mixed Bag (20 mins)

Mixed Bag

Equipment:

- Balls, Bibs, Cones, 2 goals

Objectives:

- To place field players and goalkeepers in decision-making situations with attacks developed from the wings

Organization:

- Use half a fuled with a 5-10 yard channel each side of the field

- Mark a half-way line, 3v2 and a GK in each half. Offside applies in each half.

- Players must stay in their own half. Wingers are neutral and stay in channel.

- The channelled wingers have no allegiance - they play for both teams (in attack). If there are not enough players then only have a single nautral player in each channel

- When the ball is in the nands of keeper, GK always throws the ball to the flank players

- Wingers can pass to one another, overlap, and cross the ball, can play ball in/out to the three attackers

- Change around the players periodically to give experience in the different roles (except GKs)

Coaching Points:

- GKs must work on accurate throws to wide players

- GKs should be encouraged to "switch" play - catch from one wing, throw to the other

- GKs must communicate their requirements and organize the defence

- Field players should be encouraged to make good attacking runs (near and far post)

- Timing of runs of players is critically important - particularly the near post run

- Defenders need skillful cooperative defending against greater numbers (3v2)

Challenge:

- Outscore the opposition; send in good quality crosses from the flanks
