Technical Warm Up (10 mins)

Can start players by having them run around and do some dynamic movements. Can use 12 - 16 players in each grid.

Sort players out in grid with multiple balls depending on age group. players will dribble and pass and once they pass they will run around a cone outside and rejoin the activity. Could sort out in two teams to play possessioin with the added restriction of running around the cone once they have passed the ball. This would depend on the time.

Crossing and Finishing Technical Warm Up (20 mins)

Passing and Crossing Pattern

Sort players out in short lines as shown in multiple grids depending on amount of players and should bee 16 to 20 per grid.

Player A passes to player B who give it back to player A on a Wall Pass and player C receives with a good first touch and quickly finds player D who receives the ball and dribbles into grid to deliver the ball either driven or cross to player B who times and bends their run to space. Player B can finish by heading or vollley or ball on the ground in goal and take the position of player C.

Player A goes to B and B goes to C and C goes to D and D goes to A.

Go one way until player feel comfortable and then change direction. To speed up you can have next player A start the next rotation when the ball is moving towards D. Can add Wall Pass from D as well as Overlap.
