Play out from the back

davidscwnewOne of the things that is important in playing out from the back is the pass from the goalkeeper out to a defender in space. This is an important part of the tactic. A pass that puts the defender under pressure will usually end up in disaster.

A good first pass and the defenders are on their toes ready for the ball.

Play this game which keeps the defenders on their toes but gives them a target to aim at.

Pitch size: 30 x 20 yards (minimum) up to 40 x 25 yards (maximum)

  • One full-sized goal
  • One keeper
  • Two teams of four players
  • Three mini target goals
  • One team starts the game as the attacking team.
  • One team starts the game as the defending team.
  • The keeper starts the practice with the ball in his hands.
  • The defending team must attempt to pass out of defence and into one of the mini goals in order to score a goal.
  • The attacking team must try to win the ball and shoot into the net to score a goal.
  • The game is played for 10 consecutive balls.
  • The two teams then reverse roles for a further 10 balls.
