This devastatingly unique Between The Posts pod-cast offers some unconventional ‘Small-Sided Practice Game’ ideas That Really Work!
WHY SMALL SIDED GAMES?
Small-sided games have been a part of our soccer history in the United States for generations and continues to develop world-class players around the globe. In the past it was not uncommon for small-sided games to be played in the streets and in vacant lots with uneven numbers and mixed ages. Now our streets are too busy and the vacant lot we used to play on no longer exists. Thus, it has become the responsibility of soccer coaches to recreate the small-sided environment in their practices.
The “Small-Sided” environment, if properly adjusted, can improve players technically and tactically within a short period of time. It is a realistic FUN playing environment that can result in rapid player development.
GAMES that are…
- EVEN SIDED
- UNEVEN SIDED
- BALL TOUCHES
- NEUTRAL PLAYER(s)
- NEUTRAL AREA(s)
And much/much more to add variety to your practices and disguise the hard work it takes to get to the next level.
Listen to this enlightening segment as Tyler Vaughan and Koach Karl deliver Step #6 of the very comprehensive FUNdamental SOCCER “9 Step Practice Routine” with context and relevance that can be applied to any skill level and age.
