Prog 1 (30 mins)

Team Learning Objectives - practice counter attacking from deep positions

Session Organisation - area is approx 60x40. 2 attackers v 3 defenders in attacking half, 6 attackers v 3 defenders in defending half initially. Deep attackers can only cross halfway line after the ball is played forward.

How to Play - play starts with the GK rolling the ball out to any defender. Defenders should then try to advance into the attacking half as quickly as possible to get strikes on goal. Team of 6 restarts and tries to go to goal. Red team drop off to allow the ball to cross the halfway line.

Progressions - can the red team play 1 touch to change the tempo of the game?

An extra white player can recover into his own half with the attack.

Tech/Tact Focus - pace and accuracy of forward passes. Timing, angle & distance of support.

Physical Focus - pace of forward runs. Game realistic tempo throughout.

Social Focus - team & unit cohesion.

Psychological Focus - attitude to get forward and support quickly.
