2v2 Flying Changes (15 mins)

2v2 Flying Changes: 30x20 Yards

Organization: 2 teams of equal players. 2v2 to goal. Ball goes in the goal or out of bounds on the defending side and 2 new players dribble into the game. Play to 10.

Progression: 2v2+1. Two touch game.

Coaching Points: Speed of Play. Facilitate them to make decisions as to when to go and how quickly to go. At first will need to remind them but eventually you want them to be dribbling in without you telling them. Dribble into grid with pace and purpose. Empower them to go on their own. Not commanding them.

2v2 Possession (15 mins)

2v2 Possession Game: 12 x 15 yard rectangle

Organization: Groups of 4 play 2v2 possession; 3 minute game, losing team fitness. Winner's play other winners.

Scoring: 1. Teams score a point every time they make 5 consecutive passes. 2. Every 1 touch pass is a point. 3. Every split pass is a point

Objective: Teach to open body to see pressure and space relationship. Quick support,support angle, when to drop square and when to run behind defenders for a split pass.When to fake a pass and dribble instead.Players learn how to stay close to each other and constantly adjust their support angle as they pass back and forth or dribble. Once they get pressed too tight against a grid line, they must find a way to spring the ball into the open space and regroup without losing it.

Again, as in Activity 3, running ‘smart’ instead of running ‘hard’ is the key. Also, there is plenty of scope for deception here, both for the player off-the-ball and the player on the-ball.

Roles of Each Player in 7v7 in Build-up Phase: 1-2-3-1

7v7 grid size: 28 x 45 yards

9v9 Grid Size: 45 x 70 yards.

Coaching points: *****LET THEM PLAY!!!! DONT STOP IT EVERY TWO SECONDS AND DONT OVER COACH. LET THEM PLAY AND MAKE ONE OR TWO FREEZES. COACH IN THE FLOW AND IN NATURAL STOPPAGES!!!!!!

#1: Role of the Goal Keeper: keepers should learn how to support the back line in possession, how to distribute and be the first line of attack instead of just punt the ball long. Keepers need to learn to pass the ball on goal kicks rather than just kick it long.

#4&5: Role of the Center Backs: The back line plays a vital role in possession. The defenders need to learn how to support the midfield in possession, how to make the field big and how to help relieve pressure. The defense also plays a crucial role in switching the point of attack.

#6 Role of the Defensive Midfield: the number 6 player dictates the rhythm of possession. He needs to learn how to support the attack from behind the ball.

#2&3 Role of the Wide Players: Players 2 & 3 provide width and penetration. They need to learn to stay wide and open body to the field and provide support to the midfielders.

#9 Role of the Center Forward: Player 9 provides depth and an outlet from high pressing opponents. She needs to learn to stretch the field and stay high and central and be available for the long pass option from the back.
