Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Passing Practices

Passing Practices (20 mins)

Organisation

- Set up 2 Grids of 4 cones approximately 15-20m apart (more/less depending on your guage)

- One player on each of the cones except the first one.

Instruction

- Players follow the above passing process and movements.

- The black dotted line indicated the pass.

- The red line indicated where the player must move.

- Start off slowly to understand the passing practice and movements.

- Once comfortable, increase the ball speed and intensity.

- As soon as the ball reaches the diagonally opposite cone from the beginning, the next person goes.

Coaching Tips

- Start off with two touches and reduce to one touch in the bounce passes if possible.

- Player in the middle must open up his body when recieving the ball.

- First touch in the direction that you are playing the ball.

Advance to B if you are comfortable.

This will take some time to get right, but is a fantastic passing practice as it works on opening up the body, short and long passing and creating angles.

Final Game (30 mins)

Final Game

 9 v 7 (U10's and U11's), 7 v 5 (U9's)

Set up a normal size field applicable to your age group. We will be setting up the goals to be available permanently for the 9's and on rotation for the 10's and 11's.

Create an overload for one team so they are constantly looking for the spare player. When you play even numbers, there is a tendency in training for everyone to man mark.

The extra player is out wide on both sides, and we must encourage players to try and change the direction of the attack

Create two channel's about 10m in width as shown above. The 7 & 11 are not allowed to leave this channel until the final third. whilst the 2 & 5 should be encouraged to hold their width in possession. This is more subliminal shape education. Allows the kids to begin to understand Shape.  

Last 5 minutes can be 9 v 9, 7 v 7.

Coaching Points

- Let them play, without stopping the game too much.

- Provide individual pointers to kids on the run.

- Rotate and Substitute. So kids get to play attacking + defending team.
