Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 1- Wide pass

1- Wide pass

Organization:

- 1/2 pitch (~50x40yds) with "No play zone" (gray area) on one side. No Players can enter this zone.

- White/red team (Defending team) play 3-3 formation.

- Blue/yellow (Attacking team) play 1-3-2 formation.

- Target 1 (T1) acts as a target player for white/red and can move anywhere behind highest set of red cones. T1 is a target for the defending players to attempt to play to when they regain possession. They are also a supporting player that blue/yellow (Attacking team) can use to help maintain possession.

Instructions:

- #8W/R plays a mishit pass through to T1 and it is intercepted by #5B/Y.

- #5B/Y passes into #7B/Y.

- #3W/R steps forward to press #7B/Y.

Coaching Points:

- Drop and pinch on lost possession.

- Start to "cheat" upon recognition ball is going wide. Can you win the ball outright? If yes, GO! If not...

- Close quickly and show attacker to sideline (or inside if pacey or to weaker foot).

- Delay, look to tackle as attacker gets within scoring distance.
