2v2 Quick Attacking, Soccer Drills
This 2v2 soccer drill is a great game to work on quick attacking and defending skills.
- Create a grid approximately 25X40 yards. This is a large field for 2v2, but this is intentional as it will create more breakaway situations and will encourage players to attack the space while going to goal.
- Place a small goal or Pugg goal on each end line.
- Split the team into 2 equal groups, one with an alternate jersey color.
- Assign each player a partner on his team. These players will continue to be teammates throughout the entire soccer drill.
- Assign each team a goal to defend.
- 2 players from each team step out to play 2v2. The remaining players should line up across their defensive end line with a large supply of balls.
- Play 2v2 inside the grid to the small goals.
- If a team gets scored on they step off and two new team members step on with the ball. They look to get a quick attack on the team that just scored.
- As a team scores a goal, they must quickly transition to stop the quick attack.
- The scoring team stays on the field and plays 2v2 until they get scored on.
- If the ball goes out of bounds, the ball restarts from a teammate on their end line. Players only switch after their group gets scored on.
- First team to 20 wins.
- Modify the size of the grid and play 3v3 or 4v4 depending on the number of players you have.
