Warm Up

Set up a smaller 8x8 (metre/yard) area forming a diamond shape in the middle of the pitch.

Place 2 additional cones to use as left and right start points on the side of the pitch close to the point of the diamond (see diagram).

Form 2 equal (if possible) queues of players. Players from each team will set off to the first cone simultaneously. The idea is to do a short sprint to the 1st cone.; a sideways skip/step to the 2nd cone (left or right depending on start point) and then an alternate sideways skip/step to the last cone before turning to the outside of the diamond and jogging back to the start.

Players next in line can set off when the teammate in front passes the 1st cone.

Using the same diamond area introduce a ball to each player. The aim now is to get lots of little touches of the ball to get some ball familiarity. Encourage the players to use different parts of their feet to dribble with. Set the players challenges, like going through the entire area just using the soles of their feet. This is not a race.

Introduce a mini goal, with a defender, next to each starting point/cone. When the players turn back towards the start they now have a 1v1 against the defender. The attacker gets a point for scoring. The defender gets a point for making a tackle and dribbling out of the area.

1v1

SET UP:

2 mini goals/targets at one end of the pitch set in from each corner. Across the width of the pitch mark an ‘end-zone’ approximately 7 yards out from the goal line. Place a defender in the end zone to begin the game.

At the opposite end, create a 5x5 area just off the pitch at the halfway point of the perimeter. The 2 teams line up at this end of the pitch opposite goals. Each player has a ball.

The aim of the game is for the attackers to attack the “end-zone” and score in the goal diagonally across the pitch, having beaten the defender. The attacker can only score once inside the ‘end-zone’.

Once the attacker has scored, he becomes the defender for the next sequence.

If the defender wins the ball from the attacker he can dribble or pass the ball into the 5x5 area to also score a point(one of the attacking queue of players should move into the 5x5 area to receive the ball).

Each time the ball goes dead i.e. a goal is scored, the ball goes out of play or the defender gets the ball into the 5x5 area, the next player can begin the sequence again. The defender must be alive to that fact. Teams take it in turns to attack.

Allow the attackers the choice of which goal to score in. Points system: 2 points for scoring in the diagonal goal or 1 point for scoring in the goal directly opposite; 5 points if the defender can get the ball into the 5x5 area.

3v2 overload

SET UP:

Position a large goal at 1 end of the pitch with 2 smaller goals/targets in either corner at the opposite end.

Equidistant, but slightly set back, from the 2 smaller goals – mark out a 2x2 yard ‘holding area’

Mark out a “curved line” from 1 side of the pitch to the other with the start and end points being approximately 12 yards/metres from the goal line. GK’s take it in turns to go in goals.

2 Blues play ball into 3 reds and the 3 reds go to goal. Once The red carrying the ball has gone past the curved line the third blue is allowed to "recover"

Coaching Points:

Create angled runs to receive ball and cause confusion.

Attack at pace before defender can recover.

Use width to open up space oin the middle.

Look to combine to beat defender.

Players are free to move into thirds when attacking to create overloads.

COACHING POINTS:

In possession create width and depth

Look to forward at ecvery opportunity if not we go sideways or back.

Angles and distance of support

Body shape to receive

Quality of pass.

Rotation within thirds.

Make the pitch as big as you can in attack,
