Formation- Team working with (GK-4-2-1) and going to Gates.
Opposing team (1-4-2) going to goal.

Overload Exercises – Playing back to play Forward

2V1,3V2,4V2,4V3 Overload Games – Playing back to play Forward

Here are some exercises that encourage players to play back to open up to be able play forward. Each exercise works on reaction time, speed of play, awareness, first touch, decision making and also defensive principles.

The exercise can be excellent for GKs to feel more comfortable at playing out with their feet. Also the 4v2 and 4v3 exercises can be great to work with Defensive Midfielder in a 4-3-3 (1-4-1-2-3) for 11v11 or 7 v 7 (1-2-3-1).

2v1, 3v2, 4v2, 4v3 Games:
