soccer coaching game for practising shooting and defending
|Objective: Find the target
is a small-sided game (SSG) which requires your players to make quick, forward passes.
Find the target is also good for practising shooting, defending, making forward runs and encouraging good movement off the ball.
Age group: U10s and upwards.
Set-up: create an area 40 yards long by 30 yards wide that is split horizontally into thirds.
Place a small goal at both ends.
Divide your players into three teams plus two goalkeepers. Teams of four are ideal but you can play with teams of three or five.
Two teams play "normal" football.
The players in the third team are split into two groups of target players. One group stands next to one goal, the other group stand next to the other goal.
