How Can We Help?

4v4 4 zones 3rd player

You are here:
< All Topics

EXPLANATION

Players initially zone locked as shown
Players may not enter goal zones on either end – ball can enter final third by pass into striker or being carried in – if ball passed by one midfielder, other midfielder can join to support but must return to their zone on counter

PROGRESSION

Limit touch counts
Allow center backs to join in midfield

COACHING POINTS

Attackers – look for quick combinations, anticipate 3rd player runs into final third – time dismark to receive in midfield, 2nd attackers open up to provide options to relieve pressure
Defenders – try to close off options, look for moments to intercept and counter quickly
