HELPFUL GUIDELINES TO PREVENT "BLOW-OUT" GAMES

Listed below are a small number of the many ways of "holding down" the score when playing an "inferior' opponent in youth soccer.

1. The first thing you do is take your "striking" players (goal scorers) off the field or give them "defensive" only assignments.

2. You only "allow" the remaining players on the field to score with their "weak" foot.

3. You only "allow" a player to score after a number of "passes" have been completed 3,4,5, etc.

4. You only allow a player to "score" with their "weak" foot from outside the penalty area.

6. You reduce the number of players that you have on the field to 10,9, etc.

7. You only allow the players to perform "drills" on the field, (wall passes, overlaps, diagonal runs, etc, but NO scoring)

REMEMBER A BLOWOUT IS MORE THAN A 6 GOAL LEAD. IF YOU EXCEED 6 GOALS YOU AS A COACH WILL BE SUSPENDED FOR THE NEXT GAME.
