When the game is over there is a challenge to solve: what to do with those players who did not play or had little playing time?
Knowing that the Game is the most important training session, we can’t let the difference in practice time between the starters and the subs grow exponentially.
Therefore, several teams have adopted approaches so that all players may be in the similar levels.
Here we show Sweden Women’s Team proposal, seen in the 2015 Algarve Cup, so the subs may be be in the same levels as the starters.

GAME SITUATION KEEPER+3 V 3+KEEPER WITH AN ATTACKING JOKER
The subs started the activity prep by running lightly and through dynamic movements for about 3 minutes.
They followed with 6 reps of 2 minutes in duration of the above mentioned game situation. At the end of each game situation they moved to the field’s end line and run at maximum speed to the other end line and back. In between each game situation there was a 2 minutes pause to recover and hydrate.
