Warm Up / SAQ

Warm Up / SAQ

Organization: Three different stations all going at once. Shooting, combination play, and crossing/dribbling. Rotate the player between all three stations more than once. 

Activity:

In station one the players are attacking the space and committing the defender (mannequin) pushing the ball right or left then hitting a shot low on frame. Next to the shooting group three players are going through a simple passing pattern looking to combine with two players around the mannequin. As soon as the group has gone through a few time make sure the players are rotating between all three starting positions. Lastly, three players are outside of the grid dribble and crossing a ball over to one of their teammates. When at this station each player is responsible for getting through a quick SAQ at each of the four points on the grid. (Ladder,Hurdle, Plyometric square, and sprint forward/backpedal. 

Coaching Points:

1. Be aware of everything that is taking place around you. Know where the next ball is coming from that will be involving you.

2. Everything from shooting to passing to crossing and dribbling needs to be clean and crisp. 

3. As you get warm push the tempo a bit getting everyones heart rate up a bit.

Organization: Three grids with the final third for the defending team going to the small goal only 10 yards not 15. All players have access to two safe zones on the outside of the grid. 

Activity: 

Attacking team is defending the small goal but the main focus is getting forward and creating a 2v1 in the final third. Additional defenders are not allowed to recover so we should be finding success when breaking through into the final third. Before we can enter on the pass or dribble three passes need to be connected in the middle or defensive third. 

Progression: Now a defender from the middle third is allowed to track back as a recovery defender. If the defensive team scores a goal on the small goal they will become the attacking team. 

Coaching Points:

1. Determine when is the appropriate times to stay and times to go. 

2. Do not leave your back line or goal exposed because we pushed too many numbers forward. 

3. Decisions on when to dribble when to shoot and when to pass.

Organization: Same three thirds of the field except now the middle third is small than both the attacking and defensive. 

Activity: 

Both teams will have 5-10 minutes to attack the full size goal trying to create and score as many chances as possible. Be sure you are not exposing yourself defensively by pushing too many numbers forward. 

Coaching Points:

1. Take care of the ball when in possession. 

2. Can we look to go forward with speed and energy but also be smart enough to recognize when it is not on and not to force the play.
