Penetrating Final Ball Small-Sided Game


Grid: 25×20 Yards

Players: 4v4+1 can use many variations

Instructions: This is a great SSG that trains penetrating balls across goal.  The team in possession can score on any goal but the condition is, to score on a goal the team must play a ball through the gate  (white sticks with blue bottom) directly in front of that specific goal.  You can allow the plus player to score to not score.  Feel free to adjust the numbers or size of the grid.  In all SSG’s, variations are suggested to keep the players focused while offering them new problems to solve.
