8 v 6, Moving the Defenders

Set Up:  

There are sixteen players set up on a large field, playing 8 v 6 with two goalkeepers. During play, the attacking team can score in either of the big goals. If the defenders win the ball, they attack the two small goals set up on the opposite end line. When a goal is scored or the ball is put out of play, the ball is played back in by the team in possession. 

Coaching Points:

1.   Always pressure the ball.

2.   Cover the most dangerous players first.             

3.   GKs must move the entire defense together as a group. 


1.   Allow the GKs to defend both goals.
