                 Top 10 Reasons to be a part of the Lika Cup and play 3v3 

 

  1. Quick Footwork – Play one and two touch soccer between your teammates to move the ball quickly.
  1. No Goalkeepers -Why is scoring a goal in 11v11 soccer usually so hard? Because there is someone directly blocking the goal! In 3v3, there are no goalkeepers.
  1. Kick-Ins -Don’t worry about throwing the ball in during 3v3. When the ball goes out, you kick it in!
  1. The Angles -Position yourself defensively to cut off passing and shooting angles. On offense, try forming a triangle to position for attack. Also, when shooting, don’t forget to bend it like Beckham.
  1. The Small Field – Quick sprints, 1 -2 passes will help you develop great footwork and awareness in limited space.
  1. Learning Patience – 3v3 can be a game of patience. Being unselfish and passing can produce better results than being fast and losing the ball.
  1. 3v3 Tournaments – You only need 6 players to roster a team for a 3v3 tournament. Make a bond with your teammates during a day full of soccer fun. Also, because of the small field, your cheering section can span an entire length of a 3v3 field!
  1. Playing Under Pressure – Develop and practice making quick decisions by playing 3v3 soccer.
  1. Goals, Goals, Goals. – An average 3v3 game has about 10 goals. The feeling of scoring a goal makes the game that much better.
  1. Because It’s Fun – Soccer is fun. 3v3 Soccer is just another way to enjoy the best sport in the world
