possession circle/arrival activity (15 mins)

Normally start a training session with the above, looks really simple but gets players involved straight away, particulalrly good with new players to feel part of the group has a good social aspect to it, means they get to learn names quickly and as the playaers have no choice who they go into the middle with they have to work with whoever they go in with. No set area size depends really on the number of players, players will try and cheat and make the area bigger to buy themsleves more time in possession.

Players on the outside keep the ball from the middle players. 2 players in the middle try to win the ball. If an outside player gives the ball away they go into the middle with the man on their right.

Depending on ability level of players limit number of touches on the outside, usually do 1 touch but might need to start with 2/3 touch.

Receiving under pressure (20 mins)

SETUP:

Players on outside all have a ball and play as feeders, blues move trying to create time and space before receiving a pass and passing to a different outside player. Yellows work as defenders, defending passively at 1st before progressing to defending properly.

Area size depending on number of players

Smaller area forces players to think and play quicker as they will always be under pressure due to limited space

Bigger area forces players to work harder physically to get about the area but may loose some of the technical emphasis as there is more time and space to play in.

PROGRESSION(S):

Switch defenders, attackers and feeders regularly

COACHING POINTS:

Movement before the pass to create time and space to receive

Open body position when receivng, already going towards next pass

Move the ball quickly using as few touches as possible

Work with the players on how they receive the ball can they be in a position to pin the defender and play a pass using as few touches as possible.

Bright movement before receiving take defender away to come back and receive the pass

Make straight run to receive the ball but come off at an angle don't receive square on

Big emphasis on awareness and communication-outside players need to give information when they play and pass and help out the inside players, telling them they are free to receive
