7v7 introduces more problem solving and decision making for the young player, whilst still retaining the value of more touches of the ball, attempted passes, and shots on goal than an 11v11 game. Players are introduced to bigger pitches and spaces, as well as to positions as a part of a larger unit.
The focus switches from particular skills, to switching between the ‘thirds’ of the pitch – defending focus, attacking focus, and transitions between the two – i.e. when you have the ball, and when you don’t.
Coaches can begin to work on various tactics with young players, and gradually introduce different formations and complexities as their understanding of the game grows.
