Rondo (5 mins)

Simple Rondo warm-up (5 minutes)

Two defenders - look to be compact and not get split, communication on press - press to win!

Possession based players, look at angles - two supporting set players, move the ball quickly and get defenders on the turn.

3v3+2 (10 mins)

3v3 in the middle with two end players (5-10 minutes)

Two end players play with the team that is in possession of the ball. Three defenders try and win the ball back 'cleanly', if they play the ball out of the area they are still defending! Give players a yard outside the area.

Key Points:

Can we link up quickly to get the ball to the other end? Once we pass can we create space again? We can bounce back to the outside, but that player must play quickly back in - nobody should dwell on the ball for more than a second in this game, it should be fast paced.

If the defenders are not compact - end players can play direct ball through.

If defenders are too compact and the ball goes wide - can we get to the other side in just two passes?

Area should be big enough to allow team in possession to dominate.

SAQ (10 mins)

Three-stage SAQ

1. Player stands at the side of the hurdes, then two quickly feet in (sideways) foollowed by a hold on the outer on one leg - repeat to start and then high fast feet through a set of ring-marked cones.

2. Player starts at one end of the ladder, fast feet sideways movement (two in each rung) then one legged hold at the end for half a second before fast feet over small hurdles before explosive diagonal sprint. Walk back and repeat on other direction.

3. Simple sprint exercise through hurdles with increasing distance, sprint to cone and walk back.

Each exercise is designed for around 3-5 minutes of work before switching.

Playing out from the back (20 mins)

Combination play from goalkeeper/defence (20 min)

Question: Can we keep the ball in our half without conceeding possession or feeling 'pressured'?

Run through some passing patterns:

- Wide CBs receive the ball: Options include WB, CDM or CM - or 'keeper to recycle.

- CDM receives the ball: Option 1: on he half turn Option 2: back to goal

Key components:

CBs to receive on half turn, front foot as to not feel under pressure. CDM needs to support play AT ALL TIMES, Goalkeeper should move in relation to the CDM (laterally).

If the CDM receives and has their back to goal, can our CBs be an option? Can our CBs and CDM create an overload.

WHAT IFS:

CDM is marked. Pull player out and CM drop in.

Aims of drill: For team to run/play the ball over half way line.

Start with unopposed situations to allow comfortability, with defenders rotating with spares. Then introduce the spare defenders as passive defenders, closing down options and allowing us to explore in-game situations. Then end on full-press situation.

Coaching points:

- Weight of pass, type of pass

- Angles, creation of space

- EVERY PLAYER MUST NOT BE AFRAID TO RECEIVE A PASS

- Check shoulder, what is the environment telling me?

- Avoid 'back to their goal'
