Variable Practice (20 mins)

The area is set up 40 x 30 yards with a half way line splitting into 2 x 2x30 sections.

 

The red team play length ways and have a Target Player at each end and the blues play width ways with a Target Player at each end. This creates a 5v4 for the reds per half and a 6v4 for the blues.

 

The aim of the game is to link 4 passes before a switch can be made. The reds switch to the opposite Target Player, as shown, and transition to that area as quickly as possible. The blues, on completion of their 4 passes move across areas. This can be a diagonal switch from Target to Target or a through ball with the support and transition of all players including Target Players.

 

Rotate Target Players and also direction of play.

 

To progress on receiving the ball a Target Player can drive in an be replaced. Both teams will be set up as a Diamond 4 in midfield. Blues are replicating playing forward to #9 and back to #5. Reds are replicating switching from #2 to #3.

* #6, #8 AND #10 MUST BE MOBILE AND MOVE INTO POSITIONS TO CREATE ANGLES AND SPACE IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE BALL FROM #3 OR #4.

* #8 AND #10 SHOULD BE LOOKING TO PLAY #9 AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE AND MOVE INTO SPACE TO RECEIVE A RETURN BALL TO SCORE.

COACHES CUES
