Technical Work - Ball Control, Feints & Dribbling (30 mins)

Objective

To develop ball control, feints and dribbling.

Description

This set up is called "The Star".

Four players start at the same time from all four sides of the star, they bribble in and out all the cones. As they approach the mannequin the players execute a move/feint then take the ball to the right and change their side.

Every 2 minutes the coach will change:

- The dribble sequence- i.e. dribbling in and out every 2 cones etc.

- Technique - inside feet only, outside feet only etc.

- Type of move feint

- Change the direction from anti-clockwise to clockwise

Coaching Points

Passing Y Shape - Quick Combination + Dribble (20 mins)

Learning Objectives

To develop passing and receiving with both feet during combination play.

Description

With 20 metres between players we play 2 periods of 6 minutes.

The players line up in a Y shape and play the passes as shown in the diagram. The player moves to the next position after playing the pass.

Coaching points

1- When receiving with 1 foot and passing with the other the first touch needs to be well judged and pushed out in front of the body.

2- Reduce the time between the first touch and the pass, and then progress to 1 touch when possible.

3- Passes in the combinations need to be weighted well and aimed in front of the teammate so they can run onto the ball.

4- The passing and dribbling should be done at high tempo.

Learning Objectives

Possession game that can be used to coach a variety of topics:

Two teams of 5 play in each half. If reds have possession 2 blues can go in and try to win the ball back. If blues win the ball they have to transfer it into their half of the pitch and go and support. 2 red defenders can then go in and try to win the ball.

Coaching Points:

Receiving skills

Passing skills - type variation, weight, disguise, speed of pass.

SSG (25 mins)

Details

Play 2v1 in each end third and 2v2 in the middle third.

The goalkeeper begins by throwing the ball to an attacker. All three attackers must touch the ball before they can pass it into the other half to one of the midfielder.

Progression

When moving into the attacking third from midfield third, the player in possession has the option of passing to one of the two forwards or attacking the goal himself by dribbling the ball.

Only one player from each area can break forward at any one time without being tracked by opposition.

Following the practice stages, we take away the restrictions of area and play SSG but emphasize the disciplines of good defending and attacking principles.

Tactical
