Warm Up (20 mins)

Set Up:

- 10x10 box (x4)

- 4 players in each box

- one ball in each box

Play:

1) Players pass and move in the area and listen to shout from coach.

- after pass run out to edge of box and back in

- after pass run backwards to edge of box and back in

- perform heel flicks out of box and back in

- perform high knees out of box and back in

2) Players pass and move in the area with the ball. When coach shouts switch players pass the ball in a clockwise direction to the next box.

3) Players continue to pass and move in the box. When coach shouts switch players pass ball in a clockwise direction to the next box. Player who passes the ball, also chases ball to close down players creating a 3v1 situation in the box.

Coaching Points

- Encourage players to move after pass (don't stay in same spot)

- Get players to get a change of pace when making burst out of box and back in (game-like looking for a ball in the match)

- Ensure players have head up in area to increase awareness and players positioning

- Discourage players to turn in pass when switching, instead encourage a lay-off to teammate to switch the ball
