10 Second Vision Scanning Possession

Grid: 35×25 yard field with 6 small sided goals

Players: 7v7


This possession game can be played with many variations. The game is a small-sided game in which each team has 3 small-sided goals to score on. The only condition to start is that the scorer must be able to name 3 of the sides players color cards that were being held up. The outside players change the card in their hand every 10 seconds on the coaches command. This forces all players on the field to constantly be scanning the field. Once a goal is scored – instantly the outside players must lower the card – so the players can’t look over for a quick answer! The next progression would be for the scorer to identify all four outside players cards that were held up.
