Circle Passing with Shooting [from GrassRoots Coach]

28 Apr

2016 Update: Did this today and it worked better than I thought. No goals indeed and reduced the number of defenders from three to two, but it produced much better soccer than I expected, especially from a communication and creativity standpoint. Might in the future have fewer around the circle; too much standing around, but overall very pleased.


For (my) younger and/or less skilled players, I’m not sure I would add the goals, mostly for simplicity’s sake, but otherwise an interesting game.

An interesting progression too might be to include a goalie in the middle to whom players play the ball (on the ground and/or in the air) and who gets (or loses) points for cleanliness of collection.
