3v3 Passing through 4 Goals

​The Set-up

Two teams of three players play 3v3 inside a 25 x 25 yard box, while a third team of 3 players is “on deck” (as pictured).

The Exercise

Two teams of three players play on a rectangular field vs. one another to 4 gates.  Goals are scored by passing the ball through any of the four gates to a teammate.  Games are to three.  Winning team stays on.

Variations:

  1.     If you have 8 players, play 3v3 with two substitutes that rotate in on each goal.
  2.     If you have 12 players, have two games of 3v3 to 4 goals going on simultaneously

Focus:

  •     Passing
  •     Receiving
  •     Movement off the ball
  •     Recognizing which goal to attack

This is an excellent exercise for a coach to observe players technique, decision making and competitiveness.
