Skill Introduction (25 mins)

A starts the drill by playing a short pass into B. B cushions the pass back into A's path, A then takes a touch and plays a longer pass to the furthest foot of C. C takes a touch towards D, plays a 1-2 with D and continues the move around the triangle.

All players follow their pass to the next cone.

Coaching points

Frame the session so that you explain how this passing sequence relates to the session topic

Make sure the weight of pass is correct for the distance of the pass.

I.e. the shorter pass is underweight and the longer pass is driven with more pace.

Check your body shape when receiving with the furthest foot on the outside of the triangle.

Make sure your first touch take you towards your next target.

Progressions

Reverse the order and pass with the left foot.

The longer pass from A to C is now first time

The player in the B position does a drag back turn around cone and please directly to C.

5 v 5 + GK + Joker

Possession drill where the objective is to hit both bouncers in either corner of the pitch without losing the ball.

The neutral joker must remain in the half of the pitch opposite to the corner bouncers.

To score a goal you must hit one corner bouncer, the neutral joker and the opposite corners bouncer without losing the ball.

When you hit one of the corners bouncers you must come back and make a pass off the neutral joker before you can play to the other corner's bouncer.

The bouncers in the corners cannot play directly to each other.

The corner bouncers remain fixed and rotate regularly.

The joker can't play directly to the corner bouncers

Coaching points

Can you take your first touch in the opposite direction to which you received the ball?

Can you scan the pitch before you receive the ball so you can see the big picture?

Can you play to your teammate who is in the biggest amount of space?

Communicate with your team mates- Coach them to the best pass or change of direction.

Progressions

If a player receives the ball from the GK, that same player can’t play back to Keeper

You can only hit the corner bouncer with a first time pass.

The joker can only play first time

GK + 4 v 4 and two wide bouncers

Create a 10 meter zone for the wide players The two wide players play on both teams and act as wingers.

No other field players are allowed in the zone and the wide players can't be tackled.

Rotate the wide players regularly.

The wingers can come inside also to provide an extra player.

Once play breaks down they return to the zone.

Each team must hit one winger before they can score.

Minimal coaching, however, continually encourage switching off play.

Progression

Remove wide players and zones and play SSG
