Warm-up (15 mins)

Organization:12 players

3 players per group of 3 cones (triangle), 2 players w/ ball on the base of triangle, 1 player w/o ball on top of the triangle.

Instructions:

Player on top of the triangle checks to one of the players with the ball.

The player with the ball passes to the checking player on the outside foot, player then takes a touch and passes back with outside foot.

Goes around the go and checks to the other player and does the same action.

Coaching Points:

Proper shape of the body (opening up to receive and pass the ball).

Proper passing technique (foot shape: toe up, heel down, ankle locked), plant foot pointed at the target, strike through the center of the ball, follow through straight at the target.

Passing/receiving with the proper foot.

Progressions:

Start with two touch, then the player at the top of the triangle can go one touch. Again passing players must pass to the proper foot.

Variation: Player at the top starts on the "inside" of the cone, receives the ball, then cuts across the cone to the outside and passes back with the opposite foot.

Makes the players move side to side, as well as developing the touch to cut across the defender if needed.

Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Main Activity
Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Main Activity

Main Activity (25 mins)

Organization:12 players (6v.6)

40x20 grid (can alter to fit your players ability or numbers), endzones 5x10

4v4 inside endzones, 1 per team in each endzone.

Instructions:

Goal is to connect endzone without losing possession.

Team gets one point everytime they get it from one endzone player to the other w/o losing possession.

Can start at endzone.

Players inside the endzone cannot defend each other, but can move laterally to receive the ball.

Rotate endzone players every 5 min or so. (or when a team reaches a certain point total, ex rotate after a team gets to 5 pts)

Coaching Points:

Opening up quickly to see the field, and to know where you are going next before receiving the ball.

Constantly checking where the pressure is coming from, so the next pass is played well.

Movement off the ball to either relieve pressure or take players away to create space and time for teammates.

Using the entire space given, opening up at the touchline so you can see the entire playing space and always running forward/into space rather than going "backwards"/turning into the touchline.

When to pass and when to dribble and take space.

Communication, communication, and more communication.

Progressions:

When the ball is played the endzone player, the endzone player dribbles out and the player who passed the ball now becomes the new endzone player.

Creates more movement, and no more stoppages to rotate the endzone player.

Teaches players to fill space left by teammates and to maintain "balance".

You can add touch min. or max. depending on the ability of your players.

Conditioned Game (25 mins)

Organization: Half field, use cones to mark out channels (width of 18)

Two mini goals, at the end of each channel.

6v.5+GK

Instructions:

Regular game, but like the main activity, the attacking team must play from one channel to the other before going to goal.

Anybody on the attacking team can go into the channel, but the restriction is only one player per team can be in the channel.

The opposite winger does not have to be set in the channel can join in the attack like a regular game.

Depending on the level of your players, you can have "set" positions, where the wide players must stay in the channel at all times.

Only 1 defender allowed in each channel at a time.

Attacking team scores by scoring on the big goal, defending team scores by "clearing" into the mini goals.

Coaching Points:

Same as the main activity.

Focus more on space (running into space, moving to clear space, passing into space, etc) because of the bigger playing area.

Try to make the players understand, that moving the ball side to side slowly does not achieve results because it gives the defense time to shift and get set.

Moving the ball from side to side is to try and create gaps in the defense and different points of attack to exploit the defense.

Progressions:

Again simple touch restrictions can be put in place to really force the players to move the ball quickly, but more for advance players, because again this is a possession session, objective is to keep the ball/be patient.

Regression - not allow the defense to go into the channels, but make a touch max. on the wide player because no pressure is allowed.
