Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Set up two teams, with 5 on field (3-2 formation) playing against the 4 on field defenders (3-1 formation).

The attacking team start with the ball and then the game is live!

Attackers can score in the normal-sized goal and the defenders can score in either of the two smaller goals (use cones) at the opposite end.

Coaching points

The defence will be out numbered in this game so they will need to work hard to keep the attack out. They will need to communicate at the back, shuffle and pass players on to ensure they're not pulled out of position!

Progression

Add extra players (extra defenders to make it easier, extra attackers to make it tougher). Decrease the width of the playing area. Enforce a keep the ball on the floor rule or a two-touch rule to speed up play.
