2v2 Small sided game to maintain possession
In this small-sided game from Michael Beale, Chelsea FC Academy Coach, players have to keep possession for their team and pass the ball to a team-mate standing outside the pitch.
It is a good 2v2 with supporting play on the outside. Players are using individual and team skills to rack up more goals than the opposition.
Tips to set up game
- Set up a pitch 30 x 20 yards and use two teams of four players.
- Each team has two players on the pitch and two players off it.
- If the ball leaves play, the coach passes a new ball on to the team who weren't in possession at the time.
The aim of the game is to pass out to a team mate. The passing player swaps with the outside player, who dribbles the ball onto the pitch. Award a goal for each successful pass to an outside player.
Play the game for a set time.
