Soccer coaching game take a chance

The players decide how this game should be played. Will they take the easy option or take the harder one and potentially win more points?

Objective: to improve decision making, team work.

Suitability: intermediate or advanced.

Set up: divide your players into teams of four and give each pair of teams a small sided soccer pitch to play on.

How to play: first team to score gets a point and the first team to five points wins.

But here's the twist! Before you start, give each team 10 seconds to decide how many players they want on the pitch.

If they decide to play with all four they get one point for every goal. If they play with three they get two points, if they play with just two on the pitch they get three points for every goal and if one of them is brave enough to have a go on his own, he gets four points for the team if he can score first.

Both teams have the opportunity to change the number of players they use after each goal is scored.

This soccer coaching game is loads of fun and makes your players think tactically.
