Warm Up & 2v2s (30 mins)

Setup:

Multiple 1v1 (1v2) matchups across the defensive third as shown.

Wide grid: 20x15

Central grid: 20x15

2 teams (1 attacking and the other defending)

Activity:

Ball served in from midfield to zone where a 2v2 occurs. Server joins in to create a 2v2.

1) Winger recovers to help and play 2v2.

2) CF checks into space with back to goal. 2 CBs work together to defend 2 attackers.

If attackers get passed endline, go to goal.

Coaching Points:

+ Pressure needs to make play predictable for 2nd defender.

+ Pressure needs to either push wide or push play into covering defender.

+ In wide areas (zone 1), prefer to have recovering defender apply pressure if possible (keep team shape).

SSG - Back 4 rondo (15 mins)

30x30 grid (room to switch play but small enough for defenders to have success)

3 teams of 4 (or 5)

Extra balls around

Activity:

Coaching Points:

+ Check mark shape when ball is wide.

+ Pie shape when ball is central.

+ Attacking team needs to move ball quickly from side to side looking for opportunities.

Progression:

5v8 Phase of Play (30 mins)

Setup:

Half field - 50x70

Defensive team - 1-4-3

Attacking team - 2-3 (with 2 outside backs ready to enter)

1v1 zones in the corners

Activity:

Outside backs serve the ball into attacking team and can be used to keep possession.

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
