EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS SOCCER COACHES

Possession v Pressure

Set up

  • Pitch size: 30 x 20 yards (minimum) up to 40 x 25 yards (maximum)
  • Two teams of four players
  • Four keepers
  • No offside
  • If the ball leaves play, you have a few re-start options:
  1. The coach passes a new ball onto the pitch
  2. The players take a roll in
  3. The players take a throw in
  4. The players make a pass in
  5. The players dribble in

Rules

  • One team starts on the pitch and passes the ball around.
  • On your whistle, the team on the outside must race onto the pitch and try to win the ball and then score a goal.
  • The passing team must try to keep possession.
  • The passing team can use their keepers to keep possession of the ball.
  • The pressuring team have 30 seconds to win the ball and score a goal – if they fail then the passing team is awarded the goal.
  • Rotate the teams for the next game.
