Transition (20 mins)

Warm Up

3 teams pass and move in area include dynamic movements.

2 teams keep the ball one team try to win it back, once ball is lost the team who lost possession become the defending team.

Progression

When the ball is lost 3 players from the other 2 teams can leave the area to provide a longer pass to expand the pitch - 1 pass max on the outside then back into the area.

- Gives the defending team time to get organised and gives the attacking team the idea to play out of tight areas.

CPs

Quick transition after winning possession

Movement off the ball on possession turn over

Defend as one team not individuals

Make play predictable

Counter Attacking Practice

Coach feeds the ball into one team (Blue) inside the 20x20 area (make smaller if needed) they keep possession for as long as possible. The blue team in possession can use their outside players who can not be challenged by the white team and must play 2 touch.

When the white team win the ball they break out of the area and attack the goal. The blue team recover to try and stop the white team scoring and attack the oposite goal. The ball is dead when a goal is scored, the ball goes out of play or when counter attacking is no longer an option.

Coach re-starts the practice by passing into the middle players.

Scoring - 5 passes inside the box

- A goal is scored

CPs

Win ball as a team

Positive in possession - dribble or pass forward

Penetrating passes

Forward runs
