Drill Objective:

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. 

Drill Setup:

  1. Create a field approximately 60 X 40 yards.
  2. Two full-size goals on each end-line.
  3. Split the teams evenly into 7 vs 7. Six field players per team and a goalkeeper in each goal.
  4. For younger players with fewer field players, reduce the size of the field and number of players.

Drill Instructions:

  1. Play a small sided game with match conditions. 
  2. All game rules apply. Throw ins, corner kicks, goal kicks, etc.

Drill Coaching Points:

  • Let the game be the teacher.
  • Correct team shape.
  • Speed of play.

Drill Variations

  • Add minor restrictions to focus on a specific topic.
