One versus one, also known as 1v1, 1vs1, or one-on-one, is the smallest game-like activity in soccer.
Playing small-sided games such as 1v1 allows both attackers and defenders to work on individual skills, techniques, and tactics.
Coaching 1v1 situations is a key part of player development. It allows us to coach a broad range of skills and moments of the game, enables kids to develop attributes that will benefit them as they progress to larger-sided games, and is beneficial for players of all ages and abilities.
