Tactical 9v9 +2 (25 mins)

Set-Up: 9v9+2

Field Organization: 55x80 yards; 3 zones (30-20-30); 2-touch maximum except neutral players

Stage 1: Restricted Zones for all players except #6 (who can enter defensive third to help build-out). In possession, one defender may join the midfield zone on entry pass, and on entry pass into final third all players are "free" until loss of possession

Stage 2: Unrestricted or 11v11

Coaching Points:

Attacking - CB open to near width of 18 and OB push high; #6 comes to find the ball or a pocket, attacking midfielders float in higher spaces to find pocket; OB and W should never be in same line; coach to find the overload and break lines efficiently

Defending - Compact in 4-1-3 to defend center of the field and prevent vertical switch

Transition - Immediate reaction to close or open, immediate pressure vs. speed of play to break initial pressure, vision forward vs. denying penetration
