1v1 (look at the colour)

  • Organisation

    Two teams. Every team is divided on pairs. One player from the pair has the ball. One usual goal with GK; two small goals.

  • Process

    Two players from different teams sprint forward across the cones at the same time. The Coach shows the colour (blue or red cone). It means that the player with the ball from the proper cone (blue on image) passes the ball to his teammate, who tries to score. The player from another team must challenge and steal the ball. If he is successful, he must score to any of two small goals.

    Progression: 2v2 game after passing

  • Tip

    Two series with changing the sides; players in pair change their places after each repetition; 1 min rest between reps; 8 reps in one series

    The same in 2v2 progression.
