EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FOR GRASSROOTS SOCCER COACHES

Pin Point

The Rules

Play 3v3. To begin teams have to score at each end and compete to score the most goals. If the ball leaves the circle you then introduce the next ball.

If the ball hits a cone and crosses the goal line the goal will still count. Goals must be scored below head height (on the ground). The team with most goals wins.

Objectives

Works on passing and shooting low and accurately.

Key Skills

Good passing and movement, attitude to shooting, accuracy before power and follow ups.

Set Up

Area: 30 yard diameter circle (will encourage more central play)
Players: 6
Equipment: Two mini goals (could have three or even four), stand up cones in each goal to force shots low into corners

Develop by adding keepers who can only save centrally and distribute to their own team.

What To Call Out

“Pass and move”
“Shoot”
“Head down on contact”
“Keep it low”

Development

  •  Introduce a one touch finish, smaller gap, attack one goal defend the other.
  •  Add keepers but they can only save centrally (between the cones) and distribute to their own team.
  •  Change the difficulty level by moving the cones closer to the goalposts.

Hint

Deduct points / goals for missing the target.
