Transition Games

Transition Games and Video

Here are some Transition (Attacking to Defending / Defending to Attacking) Games. A Coach can work on Either topic or both. I use these games a lot for Defensive Principles.

Transition games are great as they are very Game related. Soccer/Football is all about Transitions.

“The most important moment in the game today is when the ball is won or lost.” – Gérard Houllier

Here is a great video on Transition by Barcelona (below) When Defending they call it the “6 second rule”. They have to get the ball back in 6 seconds (high pressing). If they don’t get the ball they retreat and get their defensive shape.
