Team Fitness

The Game

  • Play even sided matches, small sided to full 11 v. 11.
  • Depending on the fitness expectations of the coach, the team is asked to play a particular style. For example, if the coach wants them to increase the fitness demands on the players, they could be asked to play man-to-man defense and play high pressure. If pulse rates need to be lower, the teams could be asked to play zones and low pressure.
  • Field size can also effect the fitness demands. By asking teams to play high pressure on a large field, with numbers down, the fitness demands would be high.
  • Make sure extra balls are available so that play can proceed uninterupted.
