4v4 – 3v1 defending

You are here:
< All Topics


Players go 4v4 – 1 player must stay in the attacking zone
If the ball is in the attacking zone (passed or dribbled), a 2nd player may join – once ball is played into the defending zone, one of the two players must drop in and help


Limit touch count
Add GK


Try to build possession (3v2) in defending half, then advance ball
Player in attacking zone – look to dismark from defender to receive, consider timing, use verbal/non-verbal communication to signal readiness to receive
