The Gate Game | Developing Support Play (05-P2)

Updated: Nov 10

This possession football practice is known as the Gamet Game and is focused on improving support play in possession. We position 5 sets of 2 poles with a 3-yard gap between each on a pitch 40 by 40.



The objective is for the team in possession to combine with a teammate with a pass through a gate.


Focus on speed of support, reactions to opposition screening, and use of the switch to break pressure.
