Skill Intro (10 mins)

4 markers placed 12-15m opposite of each other with 4 markers centrally in a diamond 1m-1.5m apart.

Max. 2 players with ball line up at the markers. On the coaches call two players opposite each other start dribbling to the other side. In the middle they perform a prescribed or free feint to go around the right side of the markers and accelerate to the opposite marker.

After 2 minutes: now go around the left side of the markers.

Progression:

• Speed up tempo (maintain proper execution)

• Take out the markers (perception and communication)

Skill Training (20 mins)

In a grid of approximately 20m x 30m two small goals are placed on each byline with markers on the corners and on the sideline at 5m from the corners to mark the ‘scoring zone’.

Two teams of 6 players maximum line up behind the markers on the sideline as shown. The coach is positioned with the balls between the two goals on one side of the pitch.

On a signal from the coach red #1 and yellow #1 sprint around the corner marker and the nearest goal. The coach serves in favor of the yellow player who take on the red player at maximum speed. The attacker can finish in either of the 2 goals but must finish from INSIDE the 5m ‘scoring zone’. If the defender wins the ball they can score in one of the opposite goals (one attempt max. each).

When the action has ended the players line up on the opposite side.

The coach can manipulate the 1 v 1 through the angle with which they serve the ball.

Skill Game (25 mins)

A grid of 40m x 30m divided in 2 grids of 20m x 30m by a halfway line of 4 cones (see diagram). Two small (2m) goals on each byline and a 5m-7m shooting line at each end.

Two teams of 4 players each. The game starts in grid A with the red team in possession and one yellow defender (4 v 1). The 3 other yellow players position themselves as shown (one between the goals and the other 2 at the shooting line cones).

The red team must get a player running with the ball across the halfway line into grid B and score in one of the goals (inside the scoring zone).

At the moment the red player crosses the halfway line one of the yellow players enters the grid to attack the red player (1 v 1).

Which defender commits depends on the ‘gate’ through which the attacker enters grid B (see diagram).

• If red scores: restart in grid A

• If the yellow defender captures the ball in grid B: restart in grid B with yellow in possession.

• If the defender wins the ball in the 4 v 1, they can score immediately in 1 of the 2 goals (from any distance).

Screen 4 (25 mins)

Outside the penalty box is a 15m x 15m grid with 6 cones placed as shown in the diagram.

Two teams (red and yellow) are divided into 2 groups of equal numbers and positioned as shown.

Groups yellow A and red C have a ball each. The exercise starts with A1 passing the ball to B1. A1 then runs around the central cone to receive the ball back from B1. At the moment A1 starts their run around the cone, D1 also starts to run around the opposite central cone.

A1 must now try to beat D1 in a 1 v 1 to enter the penalty box to finish on goal. D1 can only defend in the grid and is not allowed to enter the penalty box.

The action stops when A1 has finished on goal; D1 captures the ball from A1 or the ball goes outside the grid.

After the action has finished the players involved move as follows;

• A1 to group B (bring back the ball)

• B1 to group A (bring ball from A1)

• D1 goes back to group D (line up at the back)

• Next sequence is C1 passing to D2 with B2 defending
