eBook 20: Connecting Small Sided Games with 8 v 8 and 11 v 11

5.99 11.99

Small-sided games are important in the development of younger players through increased touches with the ball and more experience with basic tactical challenges.

Our goal is to create self thinking players who know how to position instinctively based on where the ball is; both when they have possession and when they don’t have possession. In doing so we work on angles of support to each other rather than just linear support and straight lines. Therefore; rather than “just having a game”, digest the following information where you can actually get “specific practice” out of just 3 v 3 or 4 v 4 games that are TOTALLY relevant to the 8 v 8 and 11 v 11 formations and the relationships between players.

How do we Connect Small Sided Games to 8 v 8 and 11 v 11?

  1. When viewing the 8 v 8 and 11 v 11 formats you will see we have the teams set up in triangles and diamonds of support.
  2. We must recreate these in the small sided games format of 3 v 3 and 4 v 4 and plant a seed in the minds of the players.
  3. By doing so we are creating very important “specific” and “relevant” practice for the players.
  4. We are building playing relationships between players who will play close to each other on the field of play in the bigger formats.
  5. No small sided game is now played for the sake of playing; there is a “purpose” to every one of them now.
  6. By playing this way, players who play close to each others position; and therefore will pass often and support each other; will now get further chances to build their “unit” relationship that occurs in the game situation at 8 v 8 and 11 v 11.
  7. It is now a “FUNCTIONAL SSG” that you can equate to a particular part of the field in the larger format.
