One Touch Warm Up Circuit

Set Up: Groups of 3 or 4 in roughly 15 X 12 areas, 1 ball per group.

Variation 1: Up-Back-Through - same player in middle for period of time. A plays to B, B lays back to A who plays through to C. C plays to B who lays back to C who plays a through ball to A.

Variation 2: Short-Short-Long - A plays to B, B plays to C across grid, follows his pass and checks for the ball back from C, B plays back to C and C hits ball across grid to A, and sequence repeats.

Variation 3: Combination with Overlap - A plays to B then checks into the middle for return pass, B plays to A and makes run behind A, A lays off to C who plays B, and B plays wall pass back to C who passes back to start. Player rotation is: A to B, B to C, C to start. Add agility work on the end so when C passes to start, they can do hurdles or ladder.

Variation 4: One Touch Movement - A plays to B and gets quick return pass before playing to C, [A then runs around near cone and returns to the middle of the grid] B lays the ball of then turns for lay off from C, who recieved wall pass back from B and plays D, who plays the ball into the center back to A [who has made his run around cone and returns wall pass].

Transition Rondo

Set Up: Size of field and umber of players, but players are divided into two even teams. Dependent upon desired outcome, you can adjust for your needs and level. Balls, pinnies and cones needed.

Organization: Team in possession [black] have all players inside the box. Team without the ball will have at least 2 players on outside of box, and the remainder of players defending inside box. The attacking team maintains possession and gains a point for every 6 consecutive passes. If the defending team wins the ball, they look to play out to one of the players on outside, and that signals full change of psession, and those players come into the box, and at least 2 players from team who lost ball exit the box and get ready on side.

Variations: [1] neutral player, [2] touch limit in possession, [3] change numbers on outside of box.

Coaching Points: Defensive pressure, decision making, accuracy of passes, quick transition, mentality, raising core temperature.

8 v 6

Set Up: Make a field 50 yards long by 40 yards wide, split into 2 halves. When in possession, it is 8v6, when possession is won, quickly transfer play back to the 2 players who haven't pressed the ball. When you lose possession, 6 of the 8 players will sprint up to press the ball and try to win it back to start again.

Progression: After winning possession, pass back into your own half, and try to make 4 passes inside the 8v6 box before moving to an 8v8 game to try and score. If possession is lost in the full field game, restart with the opposition in possession inside their own half with 8v6.

Coaching Points: [1] Press the ball at an angle to force play one way, body shape and foot position outside ball, [2] Force play into team mates, [3] Try to use a 2-3-1 shape – LS pressing (cutting field in half), 2 OM forcing play inside (no direct balls down channel) , 3 CM control the depth of space (get tight and send them back) [4] Anticipate what will happen ahead of time to press and intercept, [5] good communication among players.

Pressing Phase

Set Up: In a 50 by 44 yard area, divided into two halves. The GK distributes the ball out to one of the white players on the wing and as the HM press the ball, it is passed back over the half way line. As the winger passes back, the full back receives the pass, the yellow winger will press the ball, the nearest central midfielder will race out to the closest pass from the player on the ball, the striker cuts the field in half, and the weak side winger pinches in to make the field narrow. If white can play into their two targets [who pinched in from the wing], they can attack the goal and yellow would track back and defend. If yellows win the ball in the offensive half and score, they get 2 points. If they win it in their defenisve half, possess and score, they get 1 point. Any ball out of bounds, or saved by any keeper, play starts with Yellow's GK.
