Bouncing the ball (35 mins)

Session Objective:

To develop midfield link play

Organisation:

Two teams of 8,arranged in three areas of pitch as shown.Players in Area A receive ball off goalkeeper and attempt to play through to players in area B.

Condition: When receiving ball,Players 1 and 4 can only play ball into area C if they have played ball and received it back first.

As example,1 cannot pass directly to 2 as line of play blocked by player 3,By "bouncing" ball off 4 (i.e playing pass and moving to change angle when ball returned)1 can now play to 2.

Encourage 1 and 4 to keep possession,If pressurised they can play back to start again .

Development(a):Can also play and receive pass back off front player.Can then work on forward runs of other player.

Development(b):Player in section A who plays ball in to area B can join in till possession lost.As before,ball only goes to area C if it has been "bounced".

Idea is to keep possession by playing and receiving back to change angles and then make penetrative pass.

Development(c).Players in area A must "bounce "ball before playing to area B.

Rotate players in all areas.

Key Factors:
