Why FSL plays 3v3 or 4v4 in the Spring?

With fewer players on the field, each player has more opportunities to touch the ball, using and improving their soccer skills. Small-sided games can develop your player's decision-making, technical attributes, tactical knowledge and physical conditioning through functional movements. Small-sided soccer is FUN and allows more opportunities to score. Scoring can increase self-esteem, character development and team chemistry!

Here are some of the benefits of playing 3v3 or 4v4:

  • More touches on the ball

  • Increased number of game related decision-making opportunities

  • Constant transition from attacking to defensive situations

  • Increased 1 vs. 1 encounters in both attacking and defending situations

  • Increased opportunities to utilize specific ball skills

  • Increased opportunity to be in a goal scoring position

  • Increased opportunities to be in a 2 vs. 1 attacking and defending situation
