Screen 1

A: "Bad Numbers" or a "Numbers Down" area of the field is where there are more of them than us.

B: "Good Numbers" or a "Numbers Up" area of the field is where we there are more of us than them.

Keeping the ball involves a constant search for good numbers. After two or three short passes, chances are that the numbers are going to start turning bad. This is not a bad thing. It means that the defensive team is unbalanced and that is when we search for the good numbers and attack it quickly! It takes players that can see and feel when numbers are getting bad and look for that next ball to get into a better area to relieve pressure. It also takes players off the ball that will remain disciplined in their spacing. An ineffective player will eitherdribble into a bad numbers situation or play their teammate into bad numbers and pass their bad situation off to someone else. An effective player will see when there are bad numbers and look for that ball out of pressure. A dynamic player can see and feel when their are bad numbers and play that ball out of pressure.

Passing Sequence: 10 players Aim is to switch the point of attack using CM and CB. We will begin with 1 ball at CB's feet. Ob will back out of pressure, keeping their body open, take a touch up the line, play the CM who receives with his back foot to play the right winger that has checked to receive the pass. The RW now plays the "CB" that has backed out, creating space, and continue the pattern. You will follow your pass.

Coaching Points: 1) Receiving players must create a good angle of support. 2) Receive with back foot. 3) Positive 1st touch. 4) Accurate pass to players back foot, with PACE. 5) Timing of support. 6) Players must back out of pressure to create space b/t themselves and the defender.

6 Goal Game: 6 v 6 +1. The attacking team looks to find "good numbers" and quickly changes the point of attack to get to that area. The attacking team can score on any of the 3 goals in the direction they are attacking. The attacking team must have patience when choosing to go forward.
