This is an extension "The Shoot Out" involving not only one goalkeeper but
two central defenders positioned in front of him about 16 metres from the
goal line. The additional defenders wait, in pairs, behind the goal to replace
the initial two who defend against the first two attacks.
- The attacking players each have a ball and are positioned some 35 metres
from the goal line.
- The first attacking player moves alone with the ball and
plays aganst the two defenders in an attempt to score.
- When either he scores
or the move breaks down he remanins in the attacking area and is joined by
his second colleague who brings his ball into play which therefore,makes
a 2 v 2 situation.
- After this attack,either successful or unsuccessful, is over the third player
joins the existing two attackers to make it a 3 v 2. For this third game it
is possible to change the defenders, to enable another fresh pair of defenders
to play against the three attackers.
- The game continues until all the attacking players have had the opportunity
to play against two defenders. After the six, or perhaps eight, players have
each had one attempt the teams change places and the new attacking team plays
in a similar fashion. The offside law is in operation and the odjective is
to score goals.
- Having permanent wingers in place and insisting that
goals must be scored from a cross.
- Alternatively, a permanent striker (or strikers)
could be positioned inside the attacking area to occupy the defenders before
each attack begins.
- Later, the striker links up with the players coming forward
in each attack.
- Finally,defenders could be reduced to one or increased to
three or four depending on the requirements of the coach.
