Organisation

Red team set in a midfield diamond formation

Session Objective

Red team should attempt to play through the midfield diamond

Technical points

Receive pass on half turn

Positive pass forward into attacking third.

Positive movement to create space.

Tactical points

Movement of attacking players should provide space for others players to move into

Session starting point

Red 4 or 5 (CB) feeds ball to Red 6 (DLM) who then attempts to utilise the diamond formation.

Option 1. Red 7 and 8 split, providing space for the Red 10 to rotate into. Red 6 (DLM) attempts to

play the ball into the Red 10 who is playing at the point of the diamond.

Option 2. Play the ball into either Red 9 or 11 who have dropped off and moved into space vacated by Red 7 or 8 . Red 10 should then move into the space vacated by either Red 9 or 11. Red 7 or 8 should then take up the position at point of the diamond.

key movement points:

Movement of Red 10 must be triggered by the receiving and turning of RED 6.

Questions to challenge players

What can we do if Blue 6 is able to move across and cut out the pass ? what movement might Red 6 have to make in order to link up play ?

What can we do if Blue 7 and 8 do not track their opposite numbers in Red and instead decide drop deep and mark the space?

Can Red 6 drive into space in front of them ?

Managing the opposition

Blue 6 must not pass over the half way line until Red 6 (DLM) has received and turned.

Blue 9 will act as a target for the blue team when they gain possession. They can move between the cones but cannot move off this line

Coaching Process

1. Observe the session

2. Diagnose the problem
