Welcome to the FineSoccer Drills Newsletter. Today’s featured activity works on numbers up attacking, numbers down defending and offensive transition.
Start with a 40 x 30 grid with two full sized goals and a keeper in each goal.
Using this example the black team attacks the top goal and when they lose possession (by scoring, by shooting and it going over the goal or wide, or by the other player or keeper winning the ball) the two attacking players leave the field and are replaced by one defending player and a second attacking player adds on and the attack goes in the other direction
You can do this same thing with 3 v 2, 4 v 3 or even 5 v 4. The key is to emphasize the fast transition and the importance of getting to goal quickly
Have a great day!
