9 vs 5 & 5 vs 2 (20 mins)

9 vs 5 & 5 vs 2

Grid of 30 X 30 with a 12 X 12 in the middle of it. % red play vs 2 blue in the 12 by 12, when the blue win the ball, they now play with their remaining 7 in the 30 X 30 grid vs the 5 red who are now on defense. When the red win, they need to bring the ball back into the 12 X 12 to play 5 vs 2 vs whichever 2 blue players go in there to defend them.

Coaching Point

Speed of play (limit touches for the blue to 2 touch, talk about shoulder checks and opemning up the space and angles of support)

Transition (easiest time to win the ball back is right when you lose it so pressure the ball and get it back right away

Pressure as a team (the 5 vs 9 have to work as a unit or they will get cut up so work together and close down the space

Open the pitch when you have 9 (don`t let the 5 take away your space, move the ball quick and use the entire space

Offense vs Defense (40 mins)

Offense vs Defense

If you have 18 players great, if not then take out CM's until you do.

Working on shape out of the back. When the defense (blue) passes the ball in the nets made of cones up the sideline, they score 1 point.

When the offense (black) shoot on net they get 1 point, a goal is worth 5.

First team to 11 wins.

Lots of talk about possession for the defense and using the extra 2 players they have (emphasize that the keeper is the 2nd player they have extra, we want to use his feet to keep possession)

Lots of talk with the offense to speed up the play in the offensive third as they are short a player. Attack 1 vs 1 when close to net to shoot, find combination plays etc.
