6 v 4 Attacking Game

By Renato Lopez Moreira - 

Today's featured activity is a offensive game starting from free kick.

The game is played in a 75 x 75 yard area for one minute at a time.

The play is restarted after goal, shot out of bounds or when the ball leaves the playing area.



The game starts with a corner kick. The attackers start positioned in the penalty area, assuming any position they want. One attacker stands outside the area, waiting for a possible rebound.
The defenders mark the attacker or cover areas, whichever they prefer.
