Description

Key Learning Outcomes:

• Driving at defender (commit them)

• Observation of defender’s position! What are they giving you?

• Blocking the path ahead – play support player

• Technical application – outside of foot (better angle of pass) keeps out of defenders radius

• Disguise pass (outside, no look, body fake)

• Defenders body shape? Flat, then nutmeg is on

• If passing then it’s a straight pass (toe) with a diagonal • • run (depending on space in behind defender)

• Is the dribbling player dictating the movement or is the support player?!

Warm-UP/Technical Reps (25 mins)

Organization:

Teams divided into two or three depending upon numbers, 10 soccer balls, area set up as shown

Normal SAQ, Dynamic stretchs warm-up

• Players in the middle of the area are in pairs, each pair has one ball.

PART 1

Player 1 dribbles until they can find an open player on the outside, player 1 players the the outside player, who plays the ball to player 2, the process then repeats.

PART 2

For the progression, player 1 plays a double pass with the outside player while player 2 finds an angle of support.

Coaching Points:

• Angle of Support - Ensure runs are in areas able to receive a pass.

• Timing and Movement of Run - Make run as previous pass is made. This will allow teammate to see run and play pass early.

• Communication - Call for ball early. Can use commands like 'hold' 'give' to inform team-mate when you want pass played.

• Application of technical skill, weight, accuracy and type of pass.

-3 areas of 20x10 set up as shown -5 yard scoring zone

- teams of 3 of players place on both sides of the grid each time the complete a turn they must swap channels for their next turn to trynew position.

-6 Pugg goals or 12 cones for 6x goals

Instructions:

teams of 3 players defencive team restricted to their channel .

the defending team starts with the ball and plays a pass to the attacking team then go to press , the attacking team must try to keep possession passing across the three channels untill one of them can penetrate into the scoring zone to finish for 1 point .

if the defencive team steels they must then transition to the oposite side and do the same.

Coaching Points:

execution of combination how,when, where & why

bring out the princaples of play width depth length

Identifying gaps in defense to penetrate

Identifying defenders position

Use body to shield ball / dribble with correct foot to protect ball

Touch every step, pinky toe, head up - when defenders are close

Big touches in space, head up after every touch, take ball in stride (when space is available) Position the body in between the ball and opponent

Stay sideways-on to protect the ball and provide balance

Body weight is on the leg nearest to the defender

Head up to observe available options for posession

Tempo of play streatching the defencive team to try and find gaps using possesion until we can penetrate. Transition teaching the players to switch roles quickly when ball is won to attack and defend when ball is lost.

Progressions:

-players can now score from anyware

-if the players score in the middle its worth 3 points and only 1 point for outside channels -allow defenders are now free to cross channels

Allow a 4th player (10) to come in the middle grid and relate to positions(9,10,7,11) now giving a numbers up option to play back and start the attack again.
