Offense, Defense, Midfield
To develop extra man offense and man-down defense skills and tactics
Description of Drill-Execution
Play 4v3 in the attack box with a goalie. The offense passes the ball around the perimeter, looking to create a shooting opportunity. The defense must play a zone and rotate to the ball carrier. The offense is awarded one point for each goal scored, and the defense scores one point each time they gain possession.
- Number advantages/disadvantages
- Communication – where to force the attacker with the ball
- Unsettled situations
Variations/Progression/Increased difficulty (As your players improve their skills incorporate the following…)
Change the numbers to 3v2 or 4v2. Also you can have the offense shoot only with their non-dominant hand.
