ORGANISATION

Set up circuit as shown in the diagram.

 The group is split in half. One group works (blue) while the other (red) is actively resting as servers.

blues work for 5 minutes then rests for 5 minutes as the reds group works. Each group completes the circuit 4 times.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Players start at one of the 8 stations and move around the circuit in a clockwise motion, completing:

•Passing exercises at each yellow cone.

•Ladder exercises at each ladder, followed by a football technique.

•Hurdle exercises at each set of hurdles followed by a football technique.

For simplicity in explaining, we will start the circuit at the bottom right cone:

1.blue exchanges passes with a central server, using both feet.

2.blue works through the ladder in a forward motion (2 feet in). With the server he then completes 2 side foot volleys, one left, one right.

3.blue exchanges passes with a central server, using both feet.

4.blue works through the hurdles in a forward motion (bunny hops). With the server he then completes 2 half volleys, one left, one right.

5.blue exchanges passes with a central server, using both feet.

6.blue works through the ladder in a forward motion (hop-scotch). With the server he then completes 2 laces volleys, one left, one right.

7.blue exchanges passes with a central server, using both feet.

8.blue works through the hurdles in a forward motion (1 foot in). With the server he then completes 2 knee control and volleys, one left, one right.

The reds group then works. Repeat 3 times.

 KEY COACHING POINTS:

 1.Work hard and don’t cut corners.

2.Perfect movement technique before working on quickness.

3.Ensure quality with the football, even when tired.

4.Help your team-mates with encouragement as they tire.

PROGRESSIONS:

 1.Do SAQ exercises using lateral movements.

2.Do SAQ exercises using backward movements.
