soccer coaching game encouraging quick decisions on the pitch
|The End Zone game is great for encouraging
young players to find a place on the pitch where they can receive a pass, get out of
defenders' "shadows", support each other and make quick decisions as well as
rewarding accurate passing and good ball control.
Age range: U8s and upwards.
Difficulty: The objective of the game is easy to understand for even very young players. Successful execution, however, requires a degree of skill but, as with all football coaching games, you can make the End Zone game easier by making the playing area bigger or reducing the number of players in the playing area.
Set-up: Create a 40 yards long by 30 yards wide playing area with a five-yard wide channel at each end marked out with flat cones. These are the end zones.
Divide your players into teams of five or six.
How to play:
Note: Tackling is not allowed in end
