Combination Game (20 mins)

Organisation - Game starts 1v1 Once a player scores the other team gain a player and game becomes 2v1 and so on 3v2 etc etc, Game continues to all players have been used.

Teams only attack the one goal.

Is it easier to dribble against 3 players or 1 ?

After once through will sit down and talk about the game.

What are the different situations - Team with more players vs a team with less.

What are the advantages and disadvantages ? Do it affect the way we play ?

All good dribblers will position them each near the front so they can see how many players they can beat - Next time will position them further down the line so they will be playing against more players and see if they work out to risk it or keep the ball.

Combination Game Progression (20 mins)

Before teams could only attack the one goal now players can do a combination in the end zones which allows them to attack in either goal.

Decide when its best to pass to feet or into space.. What are the advantages to these options ?

Struggling with session

Will talk to them about the advantages of playing quickly and ask them to try limit their touches.

May add safe areas where if you receive in them you cant be tackled.

Getting alot of success.

- NOT to give the ball back to the player who gave it to you - Thinking about 3rd man movement.

- Play 1 touch football when it is on to do so

Team challenge - can you finish with 1 touch finish.

SSG - Combinations (30 mins)

SSG - Learning question : Why do we use combinations in a game ?

Combination through the Magician Zone to score a goal.

Open question with group

What is the Magicman zone ? Boys to dictate what we think a magic man is and what can they do ? Show me when your in their.

Do you have to start in the Magician Zone to start a combination ? ( 3rd man runs )

Can we use a combination to get out of a tight area ?

Could you create a goal using a combination ?

Players who just stand in the Magician zone - ask them why ? If its because they need to combine through the middle before they can score- Correct but if your being marked you would never lose marker to create the combination - Add in only allowed in the Magician Zone for ( 10 secs )
