Stage 1

Emphasis: Passing, movement and support the pass

Area: A 10 x 10m central area with 4 5 x 5m areas areas on the outside, one on each side.

Players: All

Equipment: Cones, balls

Setup: A central playing area of 10 x 10m is setup surrounded by 4 5 x 5m smaller areas. 2 players are placed in the larger area while a min of 3 players are placed in the smaller surrounding areas. There are two balls in play.

How To: The teams with the balls pass between themselves. Once identified, one of the teams then must pass to the furthest player away from them in the central area. That player then combines with the other player in the area who then passes the ball out to the area on the opposite side.

The waiting players with the other ball must watch and be ready to pass the ball into the central area once the first ball has left the area.

Players are switched out of the central playing area after a designated period of time.

5v8 Phase of Play (30 mins)

Setup:

Half field - 50x70

Coaching Points:

+ Deny central penetration defensively

+ Back 4 needs to work together to stay compact and connected.

+ Marking up in box once ball gets wide - touch-tight, ball-side, goal-side
