2 different passing activities, players will rotate through both exercises.

First drill: Player pass into B who opens up and plays to C, he roles it into D who is open and turns inside the cones and plays to E. Einto F who dribbles the ball back to the start.

Players follow their pass, and as the quality improves see if the players can do it in one touch.

Supporting the front player (35 mins)

Description: Fast Breaks to support the front player

This activty will focus on how we get the ball to the front player to allow supporting runs: Pitch size based on player numbers: approx: 40x30m

3v2's or 4v3's with keepers. Red keeper starts the activity by playing into the front player, as soon as the keeper plays, 2 Blue defenders can apply pressure. Red striker then attempts to find one of two team mates who have started by the goal and are supporting play. Activity then becomes a 3v2 situation. If the blues win it and keep the ball in play they can attack as a 2. If the balls is lost by reds or goes out of play the two red midfielders drop back behind the half way line and defend three blue attacking. Once the two players have defended they drop out of the activty as two team mates plus their attacker start anew wave of attack. Basically attack one phase and then defend one.

(Lots of balls in the goal ready for keepers to quickly start attacks)

Technical

Quality hold up play & intelligent movement to create space for runners, good distribution by the keeper.

Intelligent movement and support of the ball carrier from the two attackers joining in.

Speed of play

Tactical

When the ball is thrown out to the central striker, one player must try to get ahead of him to support and challenge in behind the defensive line, the other player must support from behind and at an angle.

Physical

Speed of the break, how quickly can you support the front man, and get beyond them

Speed at which you can get off the line and apply pressure to the ball carrier

This should develop into quite a high intensity activity

Psychological/Social

Team work, grafting for each other
