3 vs. 3 Own Half Shooting

This soccer drill is a fun game for players and goalies and recommended for U16 age levels to U12 age levels.  To set up, place the nets about 30 yards apart and split the field into half using either the center field line, discs, or cones.  The coach should be off to the side with a reserve of balls.  Three players and one goalie are on each team.  Players may not cross the center line.  The players must pass the ball and create an opening to get a clear shot on net.  The team that does not have possession is trying to get in the shooting lanes to protect against a clear shot on net. This drill requires players to make quick passes and quick shots in order to get quality scoring chances.  Defenders should also have a good presence of mind to stay in the shooting lanes and minimize the clear shooting lanes.
