Playing at Speed Passing (20 minutes)

Set Up

In between the 2 mini goals place 2 cones, 10 yards apart. 2 players stand at each cone and play will start with them. In the final third, towards the main goal, start with 1 attacker and 1 defender. On the outside of the area (or the wings) have 2 defenders on each side numbered 1 – 4.

Instructions

Play starts with 1 ball at the feet of a player stood by a cone. He passes to his teammate on the opposite cone who takes a touch and plays into the striker. Both players from the cones join their teammate to make it a 3v1 situation. On the coach's call, 1 defender can join in to make a 3v2. For example if the coach shouts 3, then number 3 joins in. The aim is for the attackers to score. 1 Full Size goal at one end complete with GK. At the opposite end have a mini goal/target in each corner. If the defenders win the ball, they can score in the 2 mini goals or pass to the coach who stands between the 2.

Progression

Add more players making it an initial 4v1, then 2 defenders to make 4v3.

Coaching Points:

Use of overloads.

Tempo of play.

Disguise passing/intention.

Communication. Support runs—don’t run in straight lines.

counter (25 mins)

Organization:

- Two teams of 3

- 25x15 grid including endzones

- 2v2 in the grid. Third player acts as a server.

Objectives:

- Teams score by dribbling the ball into the end zone

- As the attacking player dribbles the ball into the end zone, the server (other team) passes a ball into their teammate to create a quick counter.

- The player that just dribbled in must now transition back.

Coaching Points:

- First Defender delays by defending the space & slowing the attackers down.

- Use the sideline as a second defender to try and create a 1v1.

- Second defender transitions back quickly to get back behind the ball.

- When players are behind the ball, slow down the attack and try to win ball back.

Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Small Sided Activity - 15-20 minutes

Small Sided Activity - 15-20 minutes (25 mins)

Organization:

- 3v3 on a 30x18 yard field

- Small goals at the end of the field with a agility pole 3 yards behind each goal.

- All extra balls placed on four corners

Objective:

- When the team scores a goal, the player that scored has to run around the flag before coming back onto the field

- A player from the team that conceded gets a ball and quickly creates a 3v2 counter attack.

- Next two groups of three are waiting. Change every 2 goals or 2 minutes which ever comes first.

Coaching Points:

- If immediate pressure can be applied (bad first touch, bad pass) then stop the counter attack early with higher pressure.

- If not, apply light pressure by delaying and forcing into wide channels or areas of low danger while waiting for players to recover back quickly and get behind the ball.

- Player recover back does so by getting to the balancing side of the defensive line to create even numbers with correct angles and correct level of pressure.
