Rondo 4v2 (30 mins)

Objective

Developing ball retention: Passing, Receiving and losing your marker.

Description

In a square area of 12 by 12 yards we play 2v2.

Each side has 2 side players who can move up and down their line, but are not allowed to enter the square. This creates a 4v2 numerical advantage.

The aim is to maintain possession utilising all 4 players in the team, all of whom are limited to 2 touches.

The aim of the game is to reach 10 passes within your team without the opposition intercepting the ball.

The players use the 4v2 numerical advantage while in possession.

Every 2 minutes the sides are changed, also rotating the side players.

Coaching Points

1- All players should open up their body to shape themselves in the direction of their first touch and pass to a teammate.

2- Angle of support - provide support with at least 2 viable passing options.

3- Speed up play: Reduce the time taken between the first touch and the pass.

Passing Y Shape - Quick Combination + Dribble (30 mins)

Learning Objectives

To develop passing and receiving with both feet during combination play.

Description

With 20 metres between players we play 2 periods of 6 minutes.

The players line up in a Y shape and play the passes as shown in the diagram. The player moves to the next position after playing the pass.

Coaching points

1- When receiving with 1 foot and passing with the other the first touch needs to be well judged and pushed out in front of the body.

2- Reduce the time between the first touch and the pass, and then progress to 1 touch when possible.

3- Passes in the combinations need to be weighted well and aimed in front of the teammate so they can run onto the ball.

4- The passing and dribbling should be done at high tempo.
