Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 4v1 & 3v1

4v1 & 3v1 (15 mins)

Setup:

10x10 grid

Groups of 5 players

4 start on center of an endline, 1 defender in middle

Activity:

4 players on outside play keep away from defender. If defender touches ball they switch with player that made mistakes.

Rules:

+ 2 touch mandatory (no more, no less)

+ Must receive with farthest foot (enforce open body shape)

+ Must create angles by sliding down endline toward cone nearest player with ball

+ Must call name of player passing to.

+ No pass through grid (must be to adjacent player)

Coaching Points:

+ Anticipate where next pass is going to create angles

+ Firm passes give teammate more time

+ Defenders look for mistakes to get out of middle (especially receiving on wrong foot)

Progression:

3v1 - players inside grid now and not anchored to an endline.

Rotation: Mistake->defender->waiting outside->attacker

5v2 - wing play to goal (15 mins)

Setup:

Same two 20x20 grids setup side by side.

2 teams of 4 with specific wide player

Activity:

Defensive team sends in 2 players to be defenders.

5v2 in grid

After 4 passes, can play ball to wide player. Passer joins so there are 2 attackers.

1 defender from other square can recover back to play a 2v1 to goal.

Coaching Points:

Maximize grid (player on each endline). Extra player can float in middle.

Receive with farthest foot. Create angles for player on ball.

When passing to winger, lead the player into space since no defenders are around (do NOT pass to feet)

Winger should drive to near post to either shoot or engage defender.

Support player should probably overlap since defender is coming from side and behind.

Progressions:

Change number of passes before going wide (more or less depending on success).

Have other winger join in and send 2 defenders so it's a 3v2 to goal.

Activity:

5 passes = goal for attackers.

If defense wins ball they attempt to score in big goal.

Coaching Points:

Receive on furthest foot.

Create angles (same as 4v1).

CM inside 3 defenders needs to find pockets of space.

Progression:

Remove cones and play to a target player

6v3 - Final Third Game (30 mins)

15x40 grid on edge of attacking 1/3 of field.

6 attackers vs. 3 defenders. 2v2 in grid, 1CB for attackers, 1v1 of CF vs. CB, 2 outside wingers.

Activity:

CB serves ball into the 2 v 2 (center mids) and have them play wide or quickly forward. Have the free running outside mids adjust based off of the CMs play. Either take it line if the mids play wide or quickly support the 1 v 1 forward if the CMs play quickly to forward. Always having the CB as a relief option.

Defense can score by getting ball to White CB (acting as Blue CF).
