1. Passing & Receiving: Peeling off Passive Defender (15 mins)

Warm-up: Peeling off Passive Defender

In the example of a warm up below, divide the squad into groups of 6-7 players and arrange each group as shown. Distance between points 1, 2, and 3 is 10-15 yards and between 3 and 5 is 20-25 yards. Player 1 passes to 2 and takes 2’s place. As the ball travels to player 2, attacker 3 peels off defender 4 to either side as shown below. Defender 4 is instructed to be a passive defender, but must do either one of the following: defender 4 either stays put or follows player 3. If the defender stays put, then player 2 passes to attacker 3’s feet. If the defender follows the attacker, then player 2 passes into space behind the defender for attacker 3 to chase (these outcomes are shown below). Attacker 3 passes to player 5 and takes his/her place. Player 5 dribbles to starting point 1. Player 2, after making a pass, becomes defender 4 and defender 4 becomes attacker 3.

Remember to keep the defender 4 passive. He shouldn’t try to intercept or tackle the ball. This is the warm up stage and the aim is to teach the mechanics of peeling off and its related decisions on the ball.

Although this is not a functional activity, it is ideal for teaching the principle of Peeling off and opening body to receive the ball facing up, hence meeting the criteria set above for qualifying an activity.

Key coaching points: Crisp accurate passing. Attacker 3 should open body and 'peak' towards player 5 before receiving the ball. Attacker 3’s first touch should take him forward. Attacker 3 should stay on-side in relation to defender 4 when he peels off. If pass is into space as shown in diagram on the right, attacker 3 should delay his run until pass is made to avoid running off-side and his run should be on the outside of defender, not on the inside.

2. 2v1 Possession (15 mins)

2v1 Possession

Grid: 12x15 grid

Organization: Two teams of 2 in each grid. One team keeps the ball against one

defender while his partner stands outside the grid. When the defender gets tired, he can

switch with his partner on the fly. After 10 turnovers, teams switch roles. Ball going out

of bounds counts as 1 turnover. If defender wins the ball and can pass it to his outside

partner, it counts as 2 turnovers (this feature highlights the element of transition which is

crucial for soccer). This could be a physically tiring activity for some players. Provide

active rest (working on juggling, etc) after every 5-10 minutes if needed.

Objective: To teach support, support angle, most economical movement, read pressure

on the ball

One of the lessons that young players find hard to learn is when and how to pass and

move. Our players have been repeated told to ‘pass and move’ that they are conditioned

to doing it without thinking of the consequences. Often it is better to ‘run smart’ rather

than ‘run hard’.

8v4 Playing from the back (25 mins)

Activity 1: 8v4

GK-4-2-1 vs 4

Set-up:

1/3 of field.

Organization

- Blue team scores by switching it from one side of the field to the other.

- Black team scores by going to goal.

***Progression: Can you give ball to the 4 defending players and see how quickly our 6 transition to defend to win the ball and then transition to spread out once they win it.

Progression:

i. #10 needs to peel off inside and try to get on the ball. Can dribble across the line and then play it back and keep possession

ii. Ball has to be played through to one of the outside backs, then they step on it and turn and keep possession. Where should the other players be in relation to this.

Coaching Points

Look to take a positive touch at all times

Body shape when showing for and receiving the ball

Angles of support off the ball

Give width when on offense

7v7 (20 mins)

Roles of Each Player in 7v7 in Build-up Phase: 1-2-3-1

#1: Role of the Goal Keeper: keepers should learn how to support the back line in possession, how to distribute and be the first line of attack instead of just punt the ball long. Keepers need to learn to pass the ball on goal kicks rather than just kick it long.

#4&5: Role of the Center Backs: The back line plays a vital role in possession. The defenders need to learn how to support the midfield in possession, how to make the field big and how to help relieve pressure. The defense also plays a crucial role in switching the point of attack.

#6 Role of the Defensive Midfield: the number 6 player dictates the rhythm of possession. He needs to learn how to support the attack from behind the ball.

#2&3 Role of the Wide Players: Players 2 & 3 provide width and penetration. They need to learn to stay wide and open body to the field and provide support to the midfielders.

#9 Role of the Center Forward: Player 9 provides depth and an outlet from high pressing opponents. She needs to learn to stretch the field and stay high and central and be available for the long pass option from the back.
