Lopsided Score Prevention Strategies

BAYS considers any goal differential greater than 5 to be unsportsmanlike. When teams violate this policy, BAYS takes note and contacts the club to address.

We as coaches have to remember to practice good sportsmanship and running up a score teaches the kids nothing and only discourages the opponents enjoyment of the game. If we implement various strategies to reduce scoring, but still continue to score on a weaker team, then we as coaches have to modify our team play even further and stop the scoring from continuing. There are trophies for good sportsmanship, but none for the alternative.

Here are some tactics to slow down scoring that will still develop player skills but not embarrass your opponent. Do not wait to reach a 5 goal differential before limiting the scoring. Strategies should be implemented when the goal differential reaches 3. If it is evident immediately that your team is superior to your opponent, you may need to implement some strategies even earlier. You also may need to use multiple combinations to impede your team from scoring.

  • Shoot only with weak foot
  • Shoot only from outside the penalty box
  • Only full backs are allowed to shoot
  • Shots can only be taken when received directly from a cross
  • Put players in their weaker position
  • Intentionally shoot wide of the goal
  • Easy shot right at the keeper
