1v1v1 is a game that is every player for them self with three players trying to score on one goal.

Set Up

Set up three cones 25-30 yards away from a large goal to function as lines for the players. This game requires a goal keeper to defend the large goal.

How It Works

When the first player from each line is ready, the coach tosses a ball out onto the field. The three players go at it 1v1v1 with all three of them trying to score on the large goal. The coach can have players in line start standing up, or for different variations can have players start in different positions. These could include players sitting down with legs straight out in front and hands on their head, plank position, lying on their backs with arms and legs straight in the air, performing a push-up before starting, etc.

Coaching Points

Emphasize hustle and getting shots off quickly. This game is difficult for attackers who wait because when one player has the ball there are two players defending them.

Similar Drills
