4v4+2 Shooting Game (15 mins)

Organization:

25*30 yard grid; one large goal on one end (space of 18-yard box separating). Supply of balls at the other end.

Activity:

Two teams play 4 v 4 (or even numbers) + 2 neutral in the area. Attacking team (blue) must make 3 passes before going to goal. To score they must dribble through one of the wide gates on either side of the area and finish unopposed. All re-starts with the server (S).

Progressions:

One defender can track the runner through the same or opposite gate.

Play even numbers.

Remove the gates; have an attacker and a defender on the top of the box outside of the grid.. after 3 passes the attacking team can now pass into the attacker with 1 player joining to make a 2 v 1, OR if a player dribbles out of the grid he/she can combine with the other striker again for a 2 v 1.

Coaching Points:

1. Disperal - open the space; look for penetrating gaps.

2. Be patient - wait for the opportunity.

3. See the target - follow through.

4. Proper shooting technique - head over the ball; plant foot next to ball.

5. Strike through the ball.

6. Lock the ankle.
