There are loads of benefits playing small-sided football games such as 7-a-side football league at Archway. Players get lots of touches in small-sided games, which is beneficial for their mastery of the ball. Also, small-sided games are a fantastic way of getting players to work together by scaling down tactical game. Every single player having a big part to play as they face match-relevant situations, as groups of players have to work and cover each other in all areas of the pitch. What players learn most from small-sided games is individual skills, like improving their first touch, and also how to make decisions in 2v1 and 1v1 situations. There has been lots written about the amazing number of touches players get in small-sided games, which is beneficial for their mastery of the ball, but there are other aspects of small-sided games that can help player development. It can be very enjoyable watching players react quickly when they win the ball and swarm forwards, creating overloads in the middle areas, so that if the attacker loses the ball and the team works quickly they can go 4v3 against their opponents. This opens a whole avenue of possibilities for players to see how they can quickly make use of the overload before the attacker gets back to help.
