Functional Practice (35 mins)

Organization

Cut off pitch at edge of the 18 to half way line.

Assign two players as 1 centre back and one right back. These players will start attacks and act as transition target men.

Server/Coach starts the game by passing the ball into CB or RB. Their movements will then dictate the shape of the attack.

Coaching points

Movement of ALL attacking players will dictate the shape of the attack.

Notice scenarios: RW get on the ball.. Dribble at pace inside toward a defender to allow overlap for RB

Movement of #10 to attempt wall/bounce pass for wide player

Wide player movements to move defenders - Short to long, long to short

CF #9 movement relative to #10. Play on blind side.

Encourage players to be positive when they have space. Recieve open and get def's on back foot.

Awareness and range of passing of #6 and #8 behind defenders.

Play scenario as you see it. Make quick decisons. Tempo of play to get in behind back 3/4.

Progression

Coach/Server can play into any attacking player to change the scenario of the attack.

Attacking players must score inside 1 minute

On blue transition into CB or RB, they are awarded goal and immediately reds attack from that position.
