Set Up:

  • Make two lines on each side of field and place two small goals on both end lines.
  • One player line starts by passing across the field to an opposing player. The first player from each line comes out to play 2v2. 
  • If a goal is scored or ball goes out of bounds, the players return to their lines. The next ball is played in with four new players.
  • Get game moving fast. As soon as ball goes out, next players need to be ready to go.

Coaching Points:

  • With 2v2, it is very important to make the 1st defender commit to the person with the ball by dribbling. Doing this attracts attention of the other defender, and allows more space and time for the other attacker to be dangerous.
  • Communication and creativity. Your first thought shouldn’t be to pass. Can you shoot? Can you dribble?
  • Introduce combinations to your players. If you pass to your teammate, can you move on the field in a way to make things unpredictable for the defenders?
