SS warm up (20 mins)

3v3 warm up. All players must start every out from their GK line.

At all times there has to be at least 1 player from each team in the 2/3 of the field.

The end goal is get the ball from a GK to the oppositions goal as quick as possible, but ensuring we have options short and over a longer distance. As players find this comfortable, enforce the rule that not all 3rds can be occupied during an attack.

No' of players vary from what formation and shape we look to play out of. Biggest points are; movements of players to identify the ideal body position to receive, area of the field to receive the ball enoforcing a positive touch, mapping/scanning the field under pressure and excecution of dribble/pass.

The line in the field represents where I'd like the CM to be past to be another option for a longer pass and for the back line to press up to or further than after the ball crosses that line. GK presses too.

Att score by passing/dribbling through a gate, if missed the def team start with ball at half way.

Remove field restrictions, allow for a more free movement pattern from the players.

The GK may be relied upon too much and players may work less because of this reason; if this does happen, add a Neutral defending player to enforce the movement and care needed for execution of tasks.
