Part 5 - Sharks and Minnows Wrap-up


 


Coach: "Although simple this game gives players a rare change to try their ball skills out in a game type situation. Players who excel at this game will likely make the best strikers and midfielders because they will have confidence with the ball under sustained pressure. Unlike many other games there is no downtime for any players in Sharks and Minnows. All player are active at all times, unlike in elimination games like Top Gun where players must sit out until a round is over. Any drills with excessive down time should be avoided. Field practice time is often limited so keeping your players constantly busy is essential to getting the most out of your practice time."
