Passing Triangles (20 mins)

Set Up: Triangles should be between 6 - 12 yards on all sides, can start smaller and make bigger as you go, having a max of 6 players in any triangle to maximize repetition [balls, cones]

Organization: Players pass the ball around the triangle, staying on the outside of the triangle, letting the ball come across their body and then taking a directional first touch around cone. Do not stand still, check away from the cone to create space. Players follow their passes.

Progressions: [a] Backpedal to Create Space - A plays to B, B lays the ball off and backpedals to create space, and receives the ball across their body and then plays to C; [b] One Two - B plays to C, C drops ball back and makes bending run around cone, and gets the ball back from B (can also add a skip pass); [c] Front Foot - D plays to E, E plays a first touch front foot pass to F, who lays it off for a one two; [d] Cut Pass - G dribbles at H, H initially checks for ball, then moves around cone, G plays a disguised pass to I, who lays off to H and gets the one two back

Coaching Points: create space, check your shoulders, proper technique in receiving the ball, speed of technique, movement off the ball, timing of runs, pace of passes

Moat Game (20 mins)

Set Up:In a 50 x 30 area, we will place a 5 yard neutral zone in the middle of the field. We will divide into 3 equal teams, sizes may vary [Balls, pinnies, cones]

Activity: One team will start in each zone, and the ball will be played into one of the end zones. The team in the middle will send 4 defenders to make it a 6 v 4. The possession team is trying to make 3 passes then play a ball on the ground to the team on the other side and the defending team is trying to press to win back possession. If a team turns the ball over, they then become the defensive group and press immediately.

Progressions: [a] can play the ball in the air to the other side, must play ball on ground through 3 smaller goals in the central zone, [c] every 3 passes, the defending team can send in another player.

Coaching Points: speed of play, awareness, movement and support off the ball, techniques of receiving the ball properly, playing the ball forward when possible, support of players in forward positions

Setup: Field is 60 x 30 yards, divided evenly into 3 zones. We play 12 v 6, starting with a 6 v 3 in zone 1, a 4 v 3 in zone 2, and 2 v 0 in zone 3. Can change dependent upon formation, numbers, etc.

Organization: The white team starts with possession in zone 1. They look to complete a set number of passes [4 - 6] and then transfer the ball into zone 2. Once in zone 2, players from zone 1 can join to increase the numbers up, and look to combine to play and get the ball into zone 3. Once in zone 3, if white maintains possession, the 4 whites in zone 2 transfer to zone 3, and the 3 yellow defenders from zone 2 drop into zone 3 to defend, and will again form a 6 v 3 in zone 3. 4 white players from zone 1 will drop into zone 2, along with the 3 yellow defenders in zone 1 to make a 4 v 3 in zone 2. Now we start the exercise from the other side, looking to work from zone 3 to zone 2 to zone 1.

Progressions: [1] restrict touches, [2] get a point by working the ball to a target on the endline with 1 touch pass, [3] add goals to endlines, [4] open up to free play with only restriction is you cannot skip a zone to attack.

Coaching Points: passing and receiving, angles of support, getting into windows, movement off the ball, timing of runs and passes, awareness, speed of play.
