soccer coaching game for improvement in passing and shooting
|Objective: To improve
passing, shooting, communication and possession skills.
The players' objective: To score or keep possession of the ball.
Age range: U9s and upwards.
Set-up: Create a 40 yards long by 30 yards wide playing area with a small goal in each corner.
This game is played between two uneven teams. In youth football jargon that means you play it "numbers up".
So you need to divide your players into one team of four or five and one team of two or three.
Tip: The younger or less experienced your players, the more uneven the teams need to be. With U9s, I usually start with 5v2.
How to play:
Coaching notes: If the larger team is
having difficulty keeping the ball, reduce the number of passes they have to complete or
increase the number of players on their team.
