In soccer, the game is the best teacher. The game challenges players by the problems it presents for the players who must solve problems to be successful. Games create realistic situations that players will come up against in the game. Through friendly competition, players will be motivated and challenged to learn the game.

It is not always possible to play a full sided game every practice; therefore, the use of small sided games becomes an important development tool. Through small sided games, players are forced to respond to game like situations and are forced to learn to problem solve. Small sided games incorporate all of the major elements of the game.

Small sided games are great learning tools to focus on areas such as transitional play, quality of touches, quality and speed of decision making, and positional. Not to mention the fact that small sided games are fun and players enjoy the competition.

Make sure your next training session incorporates small sided games such as: 4v4, To Lines or Small Goals
