Play forward

Purpose: Warm up and set the tone for the session (Playing and getting forward - Attacking mentality!)

5 vs 5 + 1 in 35 x 35 central grid

1 target on the outside of grid for each team

Teams of 5 look to keep possession with the help of the neutral player and score by passing into target's feet

Coaching points:

Play simply (2 or 3 touch) but always look to play forward first if possible!

Players off of the ball must constantly move to create space and provide supporting angles

Target player must move laterally to provide forward passing option

Good decisions! Can I play forward? If not, look to move the ball quickly to create space for a teammate to play the target's feet (DO NOT FORCE IT!)

Support in the attack

Support in the final third (getting players forward)

Purpose: Getting players to recognize when to make forward runs and getting into advanced positions in the final third

2 teams of 5 try to keep possession with the help of the neutral player with the intent of finding the target's feet with a quality pass

A goal is scored by playing into target who passes to supporting teammate making runs into endzone

Variation: Can score by playing directly into endzone to teammate making a forward run (do not have to play target)

Coaching points:

Recognition of pressure on the ball - If teammate is under pressure then runs are checked to provide support to player in possession - If player in possession has time and space, then forward runs should begin

Visual cues:

If player in possession has their head up then teammates can begin to make forward runs

As ball travels into target's feet, teammates MUST get forward to support

Purpose: Getting players to recognize when to get forward, specifically past the center forward

Coaching points:

Recognition of pressure on the ball - If teammate is under pressure then runs are checked to provide support to player in possession - If player in possession has time and space, then forward runs should begin

Visual cues:

If player in possession has their head up then teammates can begin to make forward runs

As ball travels into target's feet, teammates MUST get forward to support and look to get "in behind"
