Benefits of Small-Sided Soccer

  1. Ball Touches – More touches on the ball for each player.
  2. Ball Control – emphasis on close ball control and technique in limited space.
  3. Speed of Play – due to limited space and constant pressure players learn to increase their speed of play.
  4. Awareness – play is continuous with quick restarts and open flow, requiring players to remain engaged at all times.
  5. Support – on offense and defense. With smaller teams, players will learn better spacing, providing passing options, and decision making. Players off the ball must move constantly to find and create space while supporting their teammates.
  6. FUN – fast paced, skilled oriented, and more goals scored!
