6v6 with shifting Targets

  • Organisation

    • 4 mini-goals (numbered 1 to 4)

    • 4 cones (to mark the playing field)

  • Process

    Two teams play in a 6v6 on four mini-goals.

    The goals that the two teams will try to score on are announced beforehand.

    For example, team red has to score on goals 1 and 4 and the blue team attacks goals 2 and 3.

    The goals can also be switched as the game progresses.

  • Tip

    Coaching Points:

    • Use the whole size of the field when in possession

    • Demand determination from your players in 1v1 situations

    • Focus should be high throughout the entire drill; many defensive and offensive plays

  • Field size

    25 x 25 meters
