restricted space

  • Organisation

    7v7, 8v8 or 9v9

  • Process

    directional exercise to small or big goals. a restricted area is marked off within the playing area (typically in the shape of a diamond). the players can pass through, but the ball must go over or around the restricted area.

  • Tip

    exercise encourages changing the point of attack. spacing is very important. vision and range of passing come into play very quickly. can be used to really stress and emphasize pressing as you can use the barrier of the restricted area.

  • Field size

    dimensions vary depending on numbers and objective.
