2v2 or 1v1 - Get Outta Here

Drill Objective:

This drill is a very fast paced1v1 or 2v2 game that focuses on aspects of the small sided game such as dribbling, passing, and scoring.

Drill Setup:

  1. Set up a 25 x 15-yard grid. You can adjust the size of the field based on the skill level of the players.
  2. Place training sticks or a small goal at each end.

Drill Instructions:

  1. Players line up on each side.
  2. The coach stands on the other sidelines with a supply of ball.
  3. The coach plays a ball in the grid, and the first person from each line plays 1v1.
  4. If a player scores, they stay on, and the other person leaves.
  5. If the ball goes out of bounds, both players are "outta there," and a player from each team quickly enters the grid.
  6. A ball is immediately played back into the game.
  7. This is a very fast-paced game.

Drill Coaching Points:

  • Promote good small group passing, early support, good skills to beat defenders and taking shots.

Drill Variations

  • Increase the field and progressing to the 2v2 thenĀ a 3v3.
  • Limit touches during the 2v2 or 3v3 game to encourage passing.
  • Enforce limitations such as beating a player before passing to encourage players taking on defenders.
