Everyone’s a striker!

All small-sided games (football “matches” usually with four to six players on a team) help improve teamwork but Everyone’s a Striker! is particularly useful for coaches who are trying to mould their players into a team.

Age group: U8s to U14s.

Set-up: 4v4 plus goalkeepers on a 30×20 yards pitch with a goal at each end.

How to play: Normal rules apply and the first team to score four goals wins the game. But no player can score more than once.

This condition encourages the “star” players to focus on helping their team mates and helps every player, no matter how new or inexperienced, to enjoy success.
