Set-up: Field 20x25 Grid.

Progression: 3-4 minute games. Losers have fitness.

1) 5 passes = 1 point.

2) Get one point whenever you successfully play one touch with teammate

3) Get one point everytime you do a combination with your team.

4) Play game 3 again after making coaching points.

Coaching points: What should you do after you pass the ball? (introduce 3 step rule) Must pass and move. When you perform combination play, need to face up defender and pass and move around them.

For one touch game: players will want to force one touch passes all the time. Introduce decision making, when is the best time to one touch pass? (what should you do before receiving the ball to make this possible <peak>)

8v8 Arsenal Way (30 mins)

8v8 Arsenal Way: 3-3-2

OR 1 point for a goal or 1 point for a wall-pass

Game # 1: Only way to go forward is to dribble or off of combination play. Target can only play it first time - if not it's a turnover.

Coaching Points:

1) Move immediately for support after played forwards

2) Every player has had opportunites to go forwrards, but all players have chosen to go backwards

3) GK if you have trouble getting out of the back, just bang a couple forwards

4) Passing backwards doesn't solve problem

5) Combination - if someone plays it forwards

6) Don't cut the ball back - every 1/2 chance that you have take it - don't look to possess - (carve the defender) beat the defender and shoot

Progression:

Game # 2 : Same Rules as Game #1 but take 2 players off and add 2 neutrals - search for the seams for combination play

Game #2 again:

Coaching Point: 1) Neutrals should stagger, one should stay higher than the other - look to combine with each other. 2)Don't pass up opportunity to shoot - carve her and go. 3) Run at the defender to commit than play

Game #3: Every pass had to go forwards - except combination pass which can be set.

Coaching Point: 1) Dribble Backwards to play forwards. 2) Target player has to find seam so that the ball can be played forwards.

Game #4: Add one more player to each team. One team has only 6 seconds to shoot. The other team's rule is that every pass must be forwards, you ar eallowed one back pass per possession, but i has to have been played forwards 1st time.

Coaching Point: 1) only go backwards if there is no pressure on the receiving player - set them perfectly for a forward pass. 2) back pass has to be played on the foot that the player is (right footed player should receive on her right)

Game #5: Change objectives for each team.

Game #6: Free play: GK - 2-1-3-1
