Jailbreak (15 mins)

Jailbreak

Two teams at either end in their own coloured grid with the opposing team having bibs hanging out of the back of their shorts. Idea is the try and take the bib out of their shorts and take back to the corresponding home.

If their bib gets taken they go to jail.

First tema to get all of the bibs wins round 1!

P1 - same game, they can now resuce their own team and bring them back into play by taking one of the bibs of their own colour and giving them to one of the jail birds!

Players use speed, change of direction and keeping the other players in sight to win the game!

3v3 Mini Games (20 mins)

3v3 Mini Games

Ideal end game for when fewer plyers are available or progression from overload & finishing practices before moving onto a proper 5v5 SSG. Coach to have lots of balls to keep play moving and feed into players when ball out of play and they are in some good space. If more than 6 players, set up two game so 12 players or if 9 players have three teams and play for 3-4 mins per game. Can introduce a floater or magic player if odd numbers.

Lots of different progression can be undertaken week by week to change the focus of the practice to offer different challenges, thought proccesses or desired outcomes to practices dribbling, RWB etc etc to link the end game to the theme of the session.

Using 3 players, keen to enhance triangular pass and move football, speed of play in the final third area, creative play when possible and utlisie 1v1 skills in the right area to exploit space and ultimiately score!
