Building Speed of Play in a Double 4v4

Last updated:

Many coaches associate the 4 vs 4 drill with youth soccer. A clear situation, a close distance towards the goal and many ball touches are only a few of the advantages.

Therefore, the 4 vs 4 provides a handful of benefits. Due to the increased number of obstacles within the field, this exercise is more complex than the regular 11 vs 11.

Paths must be timed better and passes should be played more precisely and harder. This drill demands a high level of attention from each player, because they have to observe the complete pitch, their teammates, the opponents, and the the other two teams.
