Set Pieces; Throw Ins & Ball Control - Technical

Organisation

Create an area 40 x 30 yard (red) with a 12 x 10 yard smaller area inside (blue).

8 players on the outside with a ball and 8 players inside the inner grid without a ball.

Aim

The aim of this activity is to develop the players skills of receiving a ball from a throw, unopposed. The players inside the grid are to make quick, agile movements to the outside of this grid in order to 'create space' to receive the ball (as shown).

The players on the outside have a ball in their hands, serve the ball under arm to begin with, and then progress to a behind head throw.

Player from the inner area controls the ball and returns it to the player on the outside, before returning to the inner area.

Rotate players after 2 minute each.

Coaching Points:

- Movement required to lose a players marker.

- Communication to the thrower from the player; 'Yes! Right foot'.

- Communication from the thrower to the player; 'Bounce it back'.

- Technique of a throw in.

Progression 1

Split the 8 players in the inner area into two teams of 4 attackers and 4 defenders. Players in the inner area to work in pairs - one attacker and one defender in each pair.

Retain the 8 players on the edge of the outer area.

This activity is a progression from the first activity. This activity brings a defender in, which adds a game realism and ensures that the movement from the players looking to receive a throw in is sharpe, the communcation loud and clear and the first touch of a good weight.

Rotate after 2 minutes each.

Reinforce movements that should be performed to create space; go to show and show to go.

Coaching Points

Player from the inner area must command the player on the edge of the area to throw him the ball as soon as he has made space. If either delays, the space will be closed down.

Further Progression

1. Introduce points - attacker scores by controlling the ball and returning it; defender scores by intercepting the ball or dispossessiong the attacker before he can return the ball.

SSG

Organisation

Create a pitch 60 x 40 yds with a 10 yard channel running alongside each side of the pitch.

Split players into two teams - red team with 9 players (4-3-1) and a blue team with 8 players (3-3-1) - both teams playing with a GK.

Aim

To provide an opportunity for players to develop their technique of throw ins and movement to be able to receive the ball.

Instructions

Game proceeds as normal except that if a player dribbles into, or is passed to inside, the either shaded area, he is able to proceed unopposed within the shaded area. Play recommences by that player making a throw in.

Progressions

Who should take the throw in in a 4-3-1? Allow which ever player dribbles into, or is passed to, within the shaded area, to make the ball available to either the Red LB /RB to take the throw. When wouldn't they take the throw in? If the red team are attacking quickly?
