1 vs 1 continuous (20 mins)

1 vs 1 Continuous

White team attacks the blue player in the middle and tries to get the ball to the other side.

The defender cannot stop the attacker until the attacker gets into the middle square.

The ball must be carried to the other side or passed but must be accurate. If the offensive team is successful, they get to continue attacking the same defender, if they lose the 1 vs 1 battle, the attacker who lost becomes the defender and now the other team attacks.

Coaching Points:

#1. Attacker uses the space before the square to gain speed and attack with pace.

#2. Be creative and try some of the individual moves that have been worked on.

#3. Talk to the defenders about proper defensive position and forcing the attacker onto their waek foot.

#4. Talk to all of the players about transition offense and defense and how that relates to a game scenario.

Jodar Drill (40 mins)

Jodar Drill

Put half your team next to you in between 2 cones 4 yards apart (distance doesn`t really matter, just a starting point)

Put half the team on cones that are placed from the goal lin and arcing up towards the other group of players.

Each player matches up with an opponent and the coach passes a 50é50 ball in for the players to play. The attacker is supposed to score, the defender must work on his angle of approach and defend.

Once they have gone, the strikers goes to the back of the line and the defender moves up a cone (if they are at the top then they go to the end line cone, if they are 2nd in line then they move to the top.

Then the next pairing goes. The key is to keep the order with their pairings, not have the person at the top go each time. You want each pairing to deal with each other with a new allignment to mess with how the defender approaches and how the attacker deals with this new defensive shape.

Coaching points

Attacker should look to use the defenders momentum coming in at an angle against him and try some fake takes or steps or circle takes to his advantage

Attacker needs to think about his shielding position

Attacker should look at not over dribbling, keep it simple if possible

Defender has to think about what his position means to his approach (if he is next to the attacker and is faster or stronger, go in hard and quick, if he`s not then think about taking an angle). If he is coming from the goal line then he can close quick and then jockey and push to a weak foot, slow down the attacker, don`t dive in.
