Description

Through building each block of players, attacking options are explored. Points of attacking emphasis are to look first at space behind the opponents back line; i.e. attack space. Next, finding the next highest penetrating option upfield, next find wide players, and if all of those options are unavailable; begin again through recycling the ball. Scanning will vital in this session; i.e. players looking about their areas of the field so as to recognize impending defensive pressure. Successful scanning allows players to make decisions quicker leading to faster play. Keeping the ball moving will be vital as it forces defensive movement leading to attacking spaces and players. Knowing the attacking options, playing with speed, and keeping the ball moving... all vital.

Warm Up (10 mins)

WARM UP- Players begin with low intensity runs throughout grid, followed by runs with dynmaic movements. Periodically, players will stop to just execute dynamic movements. Upon completion, the players interplay within the noted grid area looking to pass in posion sequence; i.e. GK to a B to a MF to a FWD, and back to the GK. There is constant movement. Coach may then institute a variety of sequences such as GK- B-B-HMF-F-GK. The same activity is being played in the adjacent space by the rest of the group. Players are always free to stretch dynamically upon need.

Sorting out the Back Line

SORTING OUT THE BACK BLOCK- Beginning without pressure, the goalkeeper shall distribute the ball to a back (In the above graphic, an OB.). Upon receipt of the ball, backs interplay with each having a touch. Once all have taken the touch, they play to an awaiting goalkeeper who may distribute back. (Opportunity to integrate that GK in the session.) Areas to be sorted out in each repetition-

> Overall shape of the block.

> Player positions relative to location of the ball.

> Playing balls with pace in front of receiving players.

> Playing proactively; i.e. making decisions before the ball is received.

> Number of passes needed to be executed within the back block. (Will come into play more once pressure is applied.)

Sorting out the Back Line

Sorting Out The Back- By adding pressure by two fron runners, backs must more realistically make tactical decisions to play outy of the back. Backs look to play to goalkeeper when it is tactically correct to do so. If the pressuring forwards win the ball, they can go to go looking to score.

Addition of the midfield

Addition of the Midfield- The back line may now look to the midfield block to play to. Next, with the addition of midfield pressure, the backs must determine which MF player is the most viable. Again, if the pressuring players win the ball, they may look to attack the goal.


Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Addition of the Forward Block

Addition of the Forward Block

Addition of the Forward Block- First, a pair of defenders and goalkeeper must be added so as to create a real space situation, offside implications, and the ability to go to goal. Play continues to begin from the goalkeeper to the backs who now have a full contingent of players to play to. Speed of play may be enhanced by implementing a two touch restriction.

Match Conditions

Since the dark team was the one being built in this session, the configuration of the opposing light team shall be in a 1-4-3-3 with each block in a flat configuration. The three white front runners can put additional pressure on the back 4 of the dark team using all three working to deny, delay, and even dispossess. This forces the back 4 to play with speed. Note the position of the coach behind the team being observed. It can be appropriate to ask the white team to play more direct at first increasing turn over opportunities for the dark team. Ultimately, all restrictions are lifted.
