3v2 Flying Changes Soccer Drill
This 3v2 drill is designed to focus on the three vs two situation, angle of support, passing decisions, and defensive shape.
Set up two goals facing each other about 35-40 yards apart.
Place a goalkeeper in each goal.
Split the team into two teams with even players (blue and red).
Place a cone on the left and right side of the field marking the center of the field.
The red team starts from the cone on one sideline, and the blue team starts at the cone on the other sideline.
Three blue players step out with a ball and become attackers.
Two red players step out and defend.
If the attacking team (blue) score, they are distributed a new ball and attack the other goal. The defenders (red) step off, get back in their line, and two new defenders (red) would step on to defend the other goal.
If the attackers (blue) do not score, they step off, and the two (red) defenders become attackers, and an additional (red) player joins the attack. Two new (blue) defenders step out to defend the goal red is attacking.
The is a very fast paced and dynamic game. Make sure the keepers in each goal have an adequate supply of balls. There shouldn’t be any pauses between changes to incorporate quick transition and to focus on paying attention.
Change the number of players 2v1 or 1v1
Restriction added - must beat defender before shoot

A 7v7 scrimmage is a great way to end most of your training sessions. The 7 vs 7 allows players to focus on team tactics in realistic training situations and respond to problems presented in the full-sided game.
