We have noted that in certain age groups there have been some high scores recording for games. We hope that teams take on board the League’s view on this and that as part of the RESPECT campaign are happy to take on board different ways to limit scoring in mis-matched games. As you should now be aware goal difference does not count at any age group, there is no benefit to be gained by scoring as many goals as possible in a game – there are other ways to look at this!
Changing player positions during the game is not the only option available and usually defeats the object as players who do not usually score then go on and score. We have outlined some examples below of actions you can take during a game where you are winning comfortably.
Teams can go back to normal play if the opposition get back into the game. Its only while there is a large difference in the score should you try different positions, add 3 touch football, take players off, use the retreat line, different players have to touch the ball etc, your team may keep scoring but it slows down the game and gets players thinking.
REMEMBER: AT 6/7 NIL HALF OF THE GIRLS ON THE PITCH ARE NO LONGER HAVING FUN, AND THE OTHER HALF ARE NO LONGER LEARNING! THIS IS OF NO BENEFIT TO ANYONE!
See the examples below of things you can do to reduce scoring during the game, it is recommended that for each goal a new initiative should be acted upon:
