2v2 with 2 neutrals

Screen Shot 2015-08-21 at 20.18.30The X’s and O’s play possession football. They can use the neutrals (the ‘N’s in the diagram) if they are in trouble. The two sides without neutrals on represents the corner of a pitch.

To make the game more competitive you can award a point for completing a set number of consecutive passes (easier) or keeping the ball for a set period (harder).

This routine helps your children to avoid pressure by playing themselves into a corner. It also encourages communication and keeping their heads up.

1. Keep moving

2. Look up often
