- To improve players’ peripheral vision, fitness and speed of transition.
- Skill level:
- Number of players:
- The whole squad.
- Set up:
- Mark out a 60 yards by 40 yards playing area with goals at either end and a centre line of cones. Or use a standard small-sided soccer pitch. Divide your players into two teams wearing bibs.
- How to play:
- Play normal soccer with the added condition that for a goal to count, all the attacking team’s players must be over the halfway line. If they’re not, the goal does not count and a goal kick is awarded. The first team to five goals wins.
- When your players are comfortable, add a second condition. When a goal is scored, the defending team must have all their players in their own half. If not, the goal counts double.
