Passing, Receiving & Creating Space (30 mins)

Learning Objectives

To develop passing, receiving and creating space (unmarking)

Description

In a square of 10 yards we play in groups of 5.

There are 2 variations.

First variation

Players pass straight and should follow the direction to replace the position of the receiver.

The receiving player must first create space (using the cone as a defender) by checking away before receiving the pass.

The same sequence continues until the coach instructs to switch the direction.

Second variation

Players pass diagonal and run straight.

Coaching Points

1- Improve the speed of play by limiting to 1 touch when it is possible.

2- Players should time their movement well when creating space. It must be made while the pass is traveling between the previous 2 players.

3- When creating space, the player should check away with an open body shape before moving to receive the pass.

4- The correct body shape should be monitored (opening up) and receiving the ball with back foot ( foot furthest away from the ball.

Progression

1- Add an extra ball with 6 players for each group. This way there will be 2 balls at the same time increasing the speed of play and difficulty.

2- Coach will call SWITCH, players have to respond quickly changing the playing direction.

Developing Possession (30 mins)

Practice Organisation

We play 4v4 possession in a 20x20 yard area. A player is positioned on each of the 20 yard perimeter lines. The players inside the grid can pass to the perimeter players if they wish. The perimeter players can move along their line looking to receive a pass and play the ball back into the grid but they must avoid taking too long to make the pass.

Progression

- Perimeter player can dribble the ball in and change places with the player that passes to him.

- Play directional

Key Coaching Points

- When the inside player receives a pass from the perimeter player, he should look to open up and see if he can turn.

- Pace of pass

- Body shape

- Think two or three moves ahead

-Stretch area, make the space as big as possible

Blocking Shots (30 mins)

Set up

•Mark out an area 30 yards x 10 yards for this drill, and use two cones, three balls, one target goal and a mannequin or pole.

•On the coaches call, the attacker dribbles towards the mannequin and completes a skill, such as a feint or a stepover.

•The defender runs as quickly as possible to get in front of the goal.

•The attacker shoots once he has passed the mannequin and the defender must attempt to block the shot.

What to call out in the drill

•React!

•Get in line with the ball!

•Stop the shot!

SSG (30 mins)

Details

Play 2v1 in each end third and 2v2 in the middle third.

The goalkeeper begins by throwing the ball to an attacker. All three attackers must touch the ball before they can pass it into the other half to one of the midfielder.

Can the defender intercept the ball?

Progression

When moving into the attacking third from midfield third, the player in possession has the option of passing to one of the two forwards or attacking the goal himself by dribbling the ball.

Only one player from each area can break forward at any one time without being tracked by opposition.

Following the practice stages, we take away the restrictions of area and play SSG but emphasize the disciplines of good defending and attacking principles.
