Activity 1: 3v3+2 (20 mins)

Organization

Two 20x25 fields. Four teams of 3 players. 4 Neutrals.

Description

Teams must attempt to get the ball from one neutral to the other to score points. Once they score, they must immediately take up a shape in order to then attack the opposite direction. When the defending team wins the ball they must Secure The First Pass and then get into their shape to start an attack.

Neutrals can score by passing to eachother. This is unlikely given the distance of the pass. The key is for the defenders to be compact, to cut off the pass through the middle.

Key Points

- Triangle

- Different heights and Lines

- Width and Depth

- Check in and Out as opposites

If there are players left over, you can put a neutral in the middle to create a 4v3 in the area.

Activity 2: 3v3 Flying Changes (20 mins)

Organization

Same size field as before. A line either side of the goals, and one wide.

Description

If the ball goes out in your half, your team switch and a new three enter with a ball. The key is to play at speed. We must provide width and depth so that there are passing options. Check in and out.

Play at speed. What are the priorities of attacking?

- Dribble at speed into space / draw defender

- Forward Pass

- Sideways Pass

- Backwards Pass
