small sided soccer game to help keep possession
|This is a good small sided game to
play. It really makes young players think. It also helps them learn how to keep possession
and play composed, careful football.
Objective: to improve support play, finding space, keeping possession.
Experience: U10 and older.
Set-up: create a playing area for a small sided game.
How to play: this game lasts five minutes and a team can only win by one goal.
So once team A scores, they simply have to keep possession for the remainder of the game to win.
Team B - if they are thinking - can now dispense with their goalkeeper and have an extra outfield player.
If team B equalises within the five minutes, both teams now try to score the winner.
Coaching notes: once you've explained the rules, sit back and watch.
