Arsenal Sessions – Transition 3

4  v.  2  in  2  zones  to  1 goal  with  keeper 

Organization 

  • play  in  an  area  of  20  x  30  yards  (  2  of  each) 
  • 2  areas  of  20  w x  15 l 

Description 

Play  starts  with  4  v  2  in  a  possession  game  –  when  the  2  inside  players  win  the  ball,  they  play 2  v.  1  to  leave  the  zone  and  then  play  2  v.  2  in  the  other  zone  trying  to  score  a  goal.  The  2 waiting  players  players  are  the  defenders  in  the  second  zone  –  should  they  win  the  ball,  they return  it  to  the  4  players  of  the  first  zone  and  the  original  2  inside  players  and  defend.  If  a  goal is  scored,  the  scoring  group  remains  in  zone  2  and  the  other  group  goes  to  zone  1  and  plays 4  v.  2 

Coaching  Points 

  • Possession  team  has  only  1  aim:  keep  the  ball 
  • Defending  2 players  must  win  the  ball,  win  a  2  v.  1  duel,  and  then  play  2  v.  2  and  try to  score 
  • The 2 waiting  players  must  defend  and  play  out  to  the possession  players 
  • If they  concede  a  goal,  then  they  become  the  defenders  in  the  first  zone 
  • Divide into  groups  of  4  and  rotate  the  players  into  different  positions
