Controlling the Tempo & Keeping Possession (35 mins)

Description - Area split into thirds, players divided into 3 groups. i) 2 groups of 5, 1 in each end third, with the 2 players remaining as defenders. The players in the end thirds have to play the ball across the middle third to each other. Playing a ball across successfully earns 1 point. 2 defenders begin in middle third and try to intercept the passes, 1 defender can go into the end third and close down. If defenders win the ball, they play back into middle third to score in one of the goals ii) One player from each end third joins the defenders to create 3 groups of 4. Same rules as first progression, but now blues or reds can drop 2 players into middle third to link up. Example above.

Technical - Passing accuracy, weight of pass, turning to beat defenders

Tactical - Controlling the tempo, patience with the ball to work an opening

Physical - Short bursts of speed to make space to receive ball, or for others

Psychological/Social - Decision of when/where to play the pass, communication between players

Learning Objectives - To work an opening to play the ball forward, if it can't be done quickly, then look after the ball as a team until the opportunity appears
