Organisation

- 12 Players

- Area 70v40. Split into thirds.

- GK belong to neither team

- 5v5 in central area

- Coach (white) is ball master. Plays in to either team.

- The aim is for the team in possession to create min of 5 passes before breaking out of area and shooting into either goal. (5th pass can be the break out pass). Attacking team can break out either way.

- Defending team try to win possession back then make their own min of 5 passess before breaking out themselves.

- Flat cones and flags/cones to display central area.

- End of each area acts as the offside line.

- Effective and informative communication, both non-verbal and verbal; talk, command, hand up, eye contact

- Quality of break out/through ball pass, weight, height, angle, distance, aim (to feet, in front, aerial, floor)

- Efficiency of keeping possession before breaking out. Principles of possessionl creating and maintainng space between the team, split the opposition, quality of pass, quality of touch, movement on, around and away from the ball

- Finishing; distance from goal, position of GK, type (placed, power, lob, volley, half volley, header), how (instep, laces, body shape/position), conviction and belief.

- Receiving, interpret and read flight/position of the ball, adjust accordingly. How many touches before shooting? Where is the goal when they receive the ball?

- Recognition of oppourtunity

- Inscisive and descisive

Progression(s)
