Possession in Triangles (15 mins)

Organization:

-make a 20x20 yard grid, divide the group in half, and have 3v3 or 4v4 inside the grid.

-the rules for the games are: 3 minute games, then switch players.

-Players on outside 2 touch; Players on inside 3 touch; all players are neutral on the outside.

-Play starts with outside player passing sideways to other outside player, looking for rotation of middle men to look to receive. Teams score by going from one end with the 2 neutral players to other without opponents touching ball. Players on outside can move up and down, also can bounce off each other as many times as they want. The single players on the outside are there to act as wide support for switching the point of attack, cannot pass to the scoring target players for goals

Progression:

1) Players on outside play 1 touch in order to see pictures early.

2) Neautral flank players have to be played through to score.

Coaching Points:

-movement off of the ball - late and quick; angles of support; be proactive vs reactive

-dispersal of players; mobility and interchange of positions

Switch and Play 6v6 (20 mins)

Organization:

-Rules - 3 minute games; same pitch size and 3v3 in middle, alternate blues and yellows on outside.

-Players on inside can only pass to the same colour on outside.

-When the inside player passes ball to outside, the outside player drives into the middle and the nearest player goes to the outside.

-Encourage players to make at least one pass inside before playing outside.

Progression:

-player who receives on the outside and comes in must make a pass on their second touch; this encourages 3rd man movements off the ball, pro activity, mobility and interchange.

Coaching Points:

-Looking for rotation, good angles, keeping possession simple and effective, decision making.
