Practice Organization:

•Area 15x10 yds with 4 goals in corners, as illustrated

•7 Players (incl. 2 Gk’s), 1 ball

•Practice starts with 3 players in central safe zone, with Defender & GK defending goal at either end

•If attacker’s progress is blocked, they can take ball back into safe zone & attack in other direction

•Should GK save an attempt on goal, the goalkeeper should roll the ball to the defender if possible, who hen transfers the ball into D in the opposite half. If not, GK throws D in the other half.

•D receiver then attempts to turn and score against GK at that end.

Detail:

•After a GK save: rolling-out to D & transferring ball across allows recovery time for A’s

•D’s work hard to dispossess A’s &/or block attempts at goal

•D’s receive opportunity to pass, receive, turn & shoot for goal whilst A’s re-group

•Simple progressions for this practice are:

oIncrease ratio of A’s to D’s (3v2, 4v2 etc)

oEncourage attacking whilst outnumbered (2v3, 4v2 etc)

oDefending one single goal, placed centrally, at each end

Key Coaching Points:

•Recognition of potential passing options when the central A player takes the ball-on towards goal

•Drawing D & moving with ball to create space for others to receive passes

•Delivering balls to supporting players & weighting passes into space for team mates to run onto

•Disguise passes to outwit D

•Practice attacking with width

•Crossing and finishing
