Scottish 4 player control work (20 mins)

Scottish 4 player control work

#1 2 players have a ball in their hands, one player without and a worker in the middle of them all. One player with the ball throws to the worker and the worker volleys the ball to the free player. The player who did not throw the ball now throws the ball to the worker and the worker volleys to the new open player. This sequence continues and the worker is to use opposite foot each time forcing him to use different parts of their foot to send the ball.

Coaching Points

Balls of your feet

eyes on the ball

be sure to use right foot then left foot

talk about why you may need to use the outside of the foot in the game

#2

Same set up as #1 but this time one feeder has the ball in the hands, the other 2 are at their feet. The worker receievs a pass, gives it back, receives a toss, heads it back, receives a pass from the other side and passes back. Then go back to the first passer and continue the sequence.

Coaching points

balls of feet

eyes to the ball

feeders should try to have the ball gone before the worker looks at them so that they have to track the ball and find it to play it. Worker dictates the speed of the ball movement.

At the highest level the passers are playing 1 touch and the feeder in the air tosses right after catching. Difficult to get that fast but it is the goal.

3 out 1 in passing (30 mins)

3 out 1 in passing

A grid of 8 x 8 with 3 players outside the grid and 1 player inside.

Player 1 passes to the middle and gets the pass back.

While this is happening, player 2 passes to player 3

As the player receives the pass from the outside, they play a wall pass with the middle and works that wall pass around to the next side of the square.

Player in the middle has to constantly get their head on a swivvle and see the next pass coming.

Potential Progression

Only at higher levels but the coach can shout change and have the players change the direction of the passes to see if they can make the quick adjustments.

Coaching Points

Player on the middle must receive on the back foot

Details for passing (name, info, show with your hand where you want the pass, weight and direction of pass)

When the player is going to receive the pass from another on the outside, they should be checking away, checking to, chek shoulder, fix shape and receive on the half turn

Player 3 now passes to the middle and player 1 passes to player 2

They are all constantly moving around the grid and the player in the middle is always with his head on a swivvle being sure to up up to the new ball coming in to the grid.

footwork, arriving into position/timing

of movement.

• Clean contact on ball with a chosen part of body or foot surface.

• Movements & interchanges of A’s should co-ordinate to cover

major goal-scoring areas within penalty area.

block shots from A2.
