Fabulous 4s Soccer Drill


The objective of this game is to encourage players to spread out and not bunch up while playing fast-paced attacking soccer. The Dutch revolutionized the way the game is played through the application of small sided 4 vs. 4 games in training. Players were encouraged to experiment and try new skills while touching the ball much more frequently than in a regular 11 vs. 11 games.?


Set out a 30 by 30 yard area with a goal in each corner (four in total). Play two teams of 4 vs. 4, with another team of four players waiting to play the next game.?

Game Objective

The object of the game is to score a goal by dribbling the ball through any of the four corner goals.

As a further progression, players may opt to pass or shoot the ball through the goals.
