Arsenal Sessions – Transition 1

4  v.  2  in  a  15  x  10  yard  area  playing  with  1  goal  with  keeper 

Organization / description 

The  3  outside  plus  the  keeper  play  possession  (1  or  2  touch)  vs  the  2  inside  players  –  when the  inside  player  wins  the  ball,  he  immediately  takes  a  shot  at  goal.  If  the  keeper  makes  a save,  resume  possession  play.  Keep  extra  balls  available  to  keep  the  game  going.   

Coaching  Points 

  • The possession  group  will  focus  on  lean,  quick  and  accurate  touches 
  • The keeper  plays  as  a field  player  and  improves  his  skills  with  feet 
  • The 2 inside  players  defend  with  the  intent  to  win  the  ball  and  have  an  immediate shot  at  goal 
  • Make teams and keep  score  – make it  competitive  –  set  a  time limit  to  play
