Attacking/Defending at pace
Objective – score at pace
- Continuous five minute 3 v 3 match
- Use subs – teach them to manage themselves
- From halfway line (be strict)
- One point per goal
Lack of numbers encourages intensity and fast play as well as subs being used
- Force substitutes and goalkeepers to be coaches – how can outfield players speed up the pace of play?
- Small numbers on a big pitch = lots of opportunities to attack into space, dribble and shoot.
- All hit outs from the defensive baseline.
- Long corners and side lines must be taken from top of the opposite D
- One point for a instant free hit
- Score one point every time your team enters the D through top third of the circle (use two flat markers).
- This is aimed at good defence because encouraging teams to attack the middle prompts good defence (channelling).
- ….change points to encourage players to attack through the right hand side of the circle
- Bonus point for any two-handed tackle
- Every time a goal is scored the scorer must go and record their goal by adding a cone to a pile on the sideline.
- One point for each time green card given to oppo for interfering in play if not 5 yds
