WHY 3V3 ?
The fastest growing soccer
format is 3 v 3
What is it about 3 v 3 that makes
it such a great game?
From the Player's viewpoint....
<>Lots of action
higher scoring than "regular soccer"
straight forward game based on 2 and 3 man combinations.
<>Easy to form
teams and organize friendlies... only need 6 or more players for a game
<>Can play 3 v 3
friendlies without adult intervention
From the Coaches viewpoint
<>Lots of touches
quickness both of mind and body
<>No place to
hide... a player on the field is actively defending or attacking at all times
tactical awareness and become skilled in 2 and 3 man combinations
organize teams and matches
full sided team can form four 3 v 3 teams for practice matches
practice on smaller field. More places to practice/play
From the Parents point of view
for better view of entire match
From the referees point of view
From the Club Aministrators Point of view
<>Easier to form
teams for all players that register - If 15 players register for an age group
that plays 8 on a side, either some players don't get on a team or someone has
to go out and find about 5 more players to have enough for 2 teams. With
roster size of 4 to 6 for a 3 v 3 team, almost any number of registered
players divides up evenly into teams with no players left out in the cold.
<>Easier to find
coaches willing to take on the responsibility of dealing with 5 or 6
players/families rather than 14 to 16.
coaches involved (because of the smaller roster size) at younger ages, more
coaches get started in the club to be candidates for coaching the larger teams
as the children get older
