In 3v3 games, there are fewer players on the field. With fewer players on the field, each player has more opportunities to touch the ball, using and improving his soccer skills. Small-sided games can develop your player’s decision-making, technical attributes, tactical knowledge, and physical conditioning through functional movements. Also, small-sided soccer is FUN and allows more opportunities to score. Scoring can increase self-esteem, character development and team chemistry!
Benefits of small-sided 3v3 games:
-More touches on the ball
-Increased number of game-related decision-making opportunities
-Constant transition from attacking to defensive situations
-Increased 1v1 encounters (attacking & defending)
-Increased opportunities to be in 2v1 situations (attacking & defending)
