*What is a small-sided game? Small sided-games are games with a small number of players on each side, for example 4 v 4 or 6 v 6. Why use small sided games?

  1. Individual technical development
  2. Tactical development
  3. Easier decision making
  4. More opportunity to solve problems that only the game presents
  5. More exposure to attacking and defending situations
  6. Because they are great FUN!
