1 v 1 Attacking Game (20 mins)

Set up:

2 teams divided up. If you have more than 10 players then you should do 2 grids so that players are standing as long. Attacking team is positioned on one end and the defending team on other. Starting cone (yellow cone) is about 5-7 yards away from 1st red cone. Gates are positoned on an angle so attackers can get through gates easier; gates are 10-15 yards apart. Gates are about 10-15 yards away from attackers and 5-10 yards away from defenders.

How It Works:

Coach yells go and attacking player (blue) and defender (red) start running around 1st cone. Attacker is trying to run through either gate and the defender is trying to touch them. If attacker gets through gate without being touched then attacking team gets a point. Attacker then goes to back of defending line and defender goes to attacking line.

Note: If attackers aren't having much success then make gets wider from each other and closer to attacker.

Progression:

Introduce ball. Attackers are now trying to dribble through gate without defender kicking ball away.

Keys:

1. Attack with speed (if you start too slowly then easy for defender to read fakes)

2. Believe in your move/fake

3. Watch defender in peripheral (once ball introduced) to see defenders reactions

4. Accelerate after fake

5. Protect ball (once ball introduced)

Movement 1 v 1 With Support Playerss (25 mins)

Setup:

In groups of 5-7 players. Cones are separated to represent defenders. Players will always need to dribble towards defender (i.e. if they go to the right, they will then need to go to left to stay inside the grid) - this forces players to use both feet. Cone set are 6-8 yards from each other and the goal is 15 yards from the last set.

How It Works:

Players will perform the following dribbling moves:

Movements:

1. Give and go (top left picture): Attacker has to commit defender and run on outside of player (some players will run on the inside).

2. Forward run, then check back (bottom middle picture): Attacker makes pass to support player looking for a give and go but passive defender drops off and the attacker checks back on angle. As you can see, the attacker actually receives the ball behind the original spot so that they have more time and space to receive. Once passive defender steps up on attacker again, attacker does one of the moves practiced to get away and make pass to other side.

3. Forward run, check back, forward again (top right picture): Attacker looks for a give and go but defender reads the run, then defender read check back so attacker runs around defender to receive ball.

Progression:

Same drill as above, but now defenders are live. Attackers can score 1) if they are able to get the ball to other end or 2) they complete 4 passes in a row.

If they are able to pass to other end then defender remains in middle and player on other side tries the same. If the attacker completes 4 passes with the side support then the defender allows for the attacker to pass the ball to the other side to begin the sequence again.

If the defender wins the ball or it goes out then the attacker becomes the defender.

Rotate support players every few minutes.

Progression 2:

Limit the attacker to 3-4 touches so that players must rely on passing and movement.

Keys:

1. Change of pace to receive ball

2. Change of direction to get away from defender (Player shouldn't actually try to fake but rather change direction otherwise their fakes are too slow and obvious)

3. Watch ball and defender/read defender's reactions which decides

4. Support players need to remember to play far foot.

Possession End Line Game (30 mins)

Set Up:

25-30 x 15 grid (adjust to your group). 6 v 6 in the middle with 2 side support on each side. Ideally, 4 v 4 with 4 with the option of (1 neutral) is best. If players have difficulty then 5 v 5 with 1 or 2 inside neutrals can be used to make the game successful.

How it Works:

Each team is trying to score by stopping the ball on the line. Teams are trying to score on the same goal throughout (i.e. they DO not change direction).

Teams can use their side support who have 2 touches with their own designated support areas.

3-4 Minute Games then rotate. 

Progression 1:

When using a side support player within 15 yards, the same player must get the ball back from the support player before continuing on (i.e. they will need to use movements practiced before to get open). If switching ball from sideline of one side to the other then player doesn't have to receive ball back.

Progression 2:

Using Progression 1, add cone check (calling out yellow or red cone being held up by coach)

 Keys (General: Depth, Width, Improvisation, Mobility, Penetration):

1. Play forward when possible.

2. Movement after playing side support (to get open again).

3. Shoulder check before receiving

4. Continuing forward runs as ball is being played.

5. Maintain balance when going forward

Movement Keys:

1. Change of pace to receive ball

2. Change of direction to get away from defender (Player shouldn't actually try to fake but rather change direction otherwise their fakes are too slow and obvious)

3. Watch ball and defender/read defender's reactions which decides

4. Support players need to remember to play far foot.

Part 1

The course is made up of six pairs of parallel cones, approximately 6 yards apart. Two players start at

the same time from the first pair of cones, jog along the inside of the cones and do the various exercises on the way. After the last cone, they run back along the outside. On the way back, speed

can be increased progressively as players warm up.

1. Jog through 5 times

2. Hip out (groin movement) - 2 sets

3. Hip in (groin movement) - 2 sets

4. Circle partner - 2 sets
