Help your players make quicker and better decisions with this three-part session. By Matthew Thomas MORE
One team starts with their goalkeeper in goal and their target is to score by making ten passes without interception by the other team.
The other team’s goalkeeper can play outfield to create an overload. Their target is to score in the opponent’s goal.
The team retaining possession cannot be offside, the team trying to score in the goal can.
If either team scores the roles are reversed and players must react to their new target.
Retaining possession, reacting to winning/losing possession individually and as a team.
Area: 50×30 yards
Players: 12 – 2 equal teams with goalkeepers
Equipment: Cones, 1 ball, 2 goals
What To Call Out
“Ten passes – goal”
Limit the touches allowed on either or both teams or on specific players.
Insist on one touch finishing – for the tenth pass or to put the ball in the goal.
The size of the goals and number of passes can also be modified to make scoring more or less difficult for either or both teams.
Keep a supply of balls nearby to allow the game to flow quickly.
Encourage variation of passes – short, long.
