3v1 Keep Away + Passing Progression (15 mins)

3v1 Keep Away Warm-up: Grid: 10x10 Grid

Why? Perfect passing & receiving technique with pressure, movement off the ball and supporting angles.

Rules:

- 3 minute games

- first to 4 points

- if player in middle wins the ball or if the ball goes out they get one point. Players on outside get one point everytime they connect 4 passes. .

- If players complete more than 4 passes then they get one point

Passing Progression: 1 minute X 4. Switch middle player.

1) Player in the middle can't steal ball. Players on outside just work on movement off the ball as they move the ball. Two touches.

Coaching Points: Offensive players must always ***receive ball across body with hips open to the field (when is the only time not to? if defender is on you, what can you do?) What should supporting players be doing? No one should ever be standing. Constant adjustments in their movements.

*** needs to be stressed every session, whenever we don't see it happening, we need to address it.
