2v2+3 (20 mins)

Setup:

20x20 grid with 5x5 box in middle

2 teams of 2, plus 3 neutrals

Activity:

Team of 2 combines with 3 neutrals to keep possession. Score goal by successfully getting ball through center square (either via CM or direct split to another player).

Coaching Points:

+ Defenders need to work together to deny central penetration.

+ Transition: Can you directly go through square (penetrate)? Or should you play simple and keep possession?

Final third transition game (20 mins)

Setup:

Gates setup in final third as shown.

Defensive team in 3-2 formation

Attacking team in 2-3 formation with 2 outside backs between gates

1 neutral Center Mid

Activity:

Ball starts with GK (either goal kick or target player plays ball into keeper).

Defensive unit tries to score by passing to blue target through gates.

Attacking team tries to press to win ball and score on big goal. 1 outside back can join into play to create overloads.

Coaching Points:

+ Attacking team should press immediately after losing ball.

+ If player on ball has time (i.e. in GK hands), attacking team must defend goals first. Drop, get compact, then press.

+ On transition from Def->Attack: Can I play long/forward to relieve pressure? Can I play short and maximize space by moving?

+ Attacking team cues of when to go to goal versus when to possess: Numbers up, space in front. If not, play simple, get big and switch play.
