2v2s (20 Minutes)

2v1 -> 2v1 (20 Minutes)

Set up one or two fields depending on numbers. Two fields allow for more repetition and no long lineups.

2v1. Attacking players must progress past two defenders and score in the goal. Defenders cannot leave their area. If the defenders win the ball they dribble out of the square. If the defenders dribble out of the square they become attackers and the attacking duo who lost possession are now defenders.

Progression

Add a time limit to score a goal  (7 to 10 seconds)

The first defender can join in the second area once the attackers have entered it. 

Setup

2 x 17/25yrds areas. For ease in setup, place cones halfway down the middle of the arrival game setup. Gates or goals can be used in this activity.

Objectives

Players are introduced to the concept of creating Width & Depth (Spreading out) when in possession of the ball.

Players keep trying to make positive decisions to move the ball forward even when unsuccessful the previous time.

Enjoyment of playing soccer.
