Initial Game - Combine to Score (15 mins)

Conditioned 3v3 game

Begin with 2 defenders vs an opposing attacker in each half. If defenders can combine in their half, they may progress into opponents half & try to score in the mini goal.

Now look at how the players can combine with the forward using a third man run (example shown)

Open game up so that there are no restrictions but look for coachable moments related to combination play.

Combinations Activity (20 mins)

Setup:

Set up side by side areas of 10x20yds. Serving player has 6 balls. 2v1 in the area with target player & extra defender on side (switch in new defender once sequence ends).

Instructions:

Initially, central players must try to get the 6 balls (one at a time) from one end to the other. Players may combine or go alone. Switch central pairs after each set of 6. Identify reasons for success & coachable moments & address both groups.

Progress by asking players to use the 'rear pass' as a last resort, try to 'wait to penetrate'. Delay until partner shows support then try to combine to succeed.

Now the 'rear pass' is banned, forcing players to combine.

Ask players to combine using creativity, not just 'robotic' one/twos. Add disguise etc.

Coaching Points:

- Body Position (see all three teammates, server/partner/target) - allows quicker play

- Use width & depth to be successful

- Wait to penetrate, delay & commit defender before killing them with pass/dribble

- Acceleration past defender after killer pass
