Defending Small Sided Games are practice sessions that generally involve two teams playing one of the following formats; 3vs3 up to 4vs4 (40x20yrds) for younger players. 6vs6 up to 9vs9 for advanced players in a 70x50yrds or a 60vs40yrds field. One team is coached on a specific coaching objective, e.g. compact defending. These games may also involve 'floater' players or support teams to acheive coaching objectives.
