1 v 1 individual defending O16 1 - 4 players 1/4 pitch Game description
The attacker tries to reach a score by dribbling through a gate of pawns.
The defender tries to prevent a score. Because there are multiple goals, this becomes a challenge for him.
The goal of the defender is to send the attacker to the side and to conquer the ball or play the ball outside.

The rules of the game

  1. The attacker starts the game by dribbling into the game.
  2. Once the attacker is through the gate, the defender may start preventing a score.
  3. Point count: a score through the side gates earns 1 point and a score straight through earns 3 points,
  4. If one game lasts longer than 2 minutes, a defender and attacker are added until a goal is scored. Only 1 ball remains in the field. If after 2 minutes - 4 minutes in total - no goal has been scored, another attacker and defender join in and so on until a goal is scored or the ball goes outside or is conquered by the defender.
  5. Variation: limit the number of ball contacts for the attacker, increase or decrease the size of the field, increase or decrease the size of the goals. 
The preparation
Organization-wise you can lay out the field according to the following dimensions. If you want to make it more difficult for the player with the ball, make the field narrower and shorter. 
The measurements Length: 15 meters Width: 15 meters, pawns should be 1.5 meters apart.



Game description:
The player with ball starts at the back and passes the pawns and passes the ball to the player waiting on the right.
When the player waiting on the right gets the ball, the player on the right in line plays the ball to the incoming player on the left in line.
This player then tries to shoot the ball into the goal behind the goalkeeper.

In this way, there will be repeated passes.
The player who has passed the pawns joins the player who has given the depth pass.
The player who made the deep pass goes to the place to finish. The player who finished correctly goes to get the ball and joins the players at the back who must pass the pawn.

  • A-B 5 meters.
  • A to goal 5 meters.
  • Hat to line B 1 meter.
  • Distance goal differs in age younger goal is bigger.
Player dribbles to line A, cuts the ball off, dribbles to line B, cuts off and shoots the ball at the goal, picks up the ball and runs around the outside back.

Inside/outside foot cut off, cut off behind stand leg, dribble with left and right.

Coach moments: 
Dribbling, touching the ball at each step, short turn off, cutting off line B and having the ball in such a way that you step through and shoot and not having the player first walk backwards for a run.

Check distances with the number of players.

  • Have players dribble into the box.
  • Trainer says 1: put players ball on foot. 
  • At 2: knee on foot.
  • At 3: sit on ball.
  • This one minute and then outside dribble through the goals in succession for about 2 minutes.
Game version 1: start in the box with dribbling at the sign of yes as fast as possible through a goal and dribble back into the box and finish with 1,2,3.

Game version 2: who will go through as many goals as possible within 1 minute.

Form of play with attack vs defense according to the formation in double check 8v8
.Attack tries to score in big goal, defense tries to take away ball and play back to starting point.
