Warm Up / SAQ

Warm Up / SAQ

Organization: Set up a grid that is 20x20 and set up two teams of 5.

Activity: (Hand Ball)

Players are allowed to throw and catch the ball. The player who has possession of the ball is only allowed to move 3 steps before he is forced to make a pass. Other players who do not have the ball can move freely throughout the space offering support to their teammate in possesion. Teams can only score by heading the ball to thier teammate standing on the endline waiting to catch the header. The player on the endline can move side to side making it easier on the players in the middle. Whoever heads the ball to the player outside the grid then takes their place. Socring team stays in possesion but must go back and cross half way line getting into their own defensive half before they can try to score again.

SAQ:

Play 5 minute games then have the players exit the grid performing 2 minutes of SAQ at each station.

Organization: Grid size 25x20. Same two teams of 5 with two small cones and four mannequin.

Activity:

Set up the field with two small goals at the end. Place your manniquin (or whatever you have) about 12 yards from the two goals. The players will use the cones as starting positions getting used to the space. Each team will be playing down one side of the field both playing at the same time.

Pattern: PLayer with the ball plays the first pass wide who turns with the ball playing the next pass deep into the back striker who is facing the player on the ball. The player closest to the manniquin checks away creating a bit of separation where he/she can receive the ball then attack the defender and get a strike on goal.

Progression: Make the teams switch sides forcing the players to use both feet.

Coaching Points:

1. Quality of pass. accurate weight and direction. (under control)

2. Receiving and turning. Know where the defenders are and where the space is.

3. Movement to create space and receive by the forward.

4. Your first touch needs to be into space out from underneath you.

5. When finishing think about when to use power or placement.

Organization: Us the same grid space as before but remove the two small goals and ad a large one which both teams will be attacking. (rotating turns)

Activity: 

Players on the enplane start with the ball connecting a pass wide, which that player will then turn and face the forward checking away from the mannequin. The forward turns taking their touch into space either around the mannequin on the outside or through the middle. Once passed the stationary defender the forward is allowed to strike their shot. Players move to the cone they played. 

Progression: Make sure the teams are switching sides. As the players become comfortable with the drill allow them to create a bit more movement away from the cones being creative and finding a different flow to the pattern. 

Coaching Points: 

1. Quality of pass. accurate weight and direction. (under control)

2. Receiving and turning. Know where the defenders are and where the space is.

3. Movement to create space and receive by the forward. 

4. Your first touch needs to be into space out from underneath you.

5. When finishing think about when to use power or placement.

Organization: One big goal, which 3v1 are always attacking. The defenders protecting the large goal will be trying to score on the two small goals. 

Activity: 6 attackers against 2 defenders and a GK. If you have two GK great make sure they are rotating. In the first half furthest away from the big goal the attacking team will be up 3v1 keeping possession until they can advance the ball forward. When one of the two forwards is connected with another attacker from the back grid can join the front grid making a new 3v1 (+GK) trying to get a quality shot on goal. 

Progression: In the back grid add another defender making it a 3v1 in the first grid but now it is a 3v2 in the deeper grid. Progression: Play 4v4 +1 with a GK. Players are allowed to move freely in all the space. 

Coaching Points: 1. Decisions on when to play safe, dribble pass or shoot.

2. Movement to get open for your teammates. Create good angles. 

3. Be greedy but do not overcomplicate the drill if you have a shot take it.
