Arrival (10 mins)

Players are juggling and recording their best score for the day while they wait for others to arrive. As soon as 4 or more girls are present, get into a rondo and again keep track of score. This should take us up to the start time of the session. Captains lead dynamic warm-up.

4v4+3

Yellow are always on offense. Blue cannot pass to the Blue directly next to them. As soon as Red win the ball they must switch with the Blue and continue to play. Rotate the 1 Yellow in the middle. Set up 2 grids. Have plenty of spare balls close.

Coaching Points

- Good passing technique

- Where to pass and weight of the pass: Away from pressure

- CM should be a bumper playing 1 touch passes where possible

- CM movement to support play or pull a defender away

- Speed of transition

- Good first touch

In the middle box we have 4v4 + 1 neutral. The aim is to play the ball to the target man at one side of the field and then to immediately turn and try to get the ball to the opposite target man etc etc. Target players are not allowed to tackle eachother, nor can any other play enter the target zone. Wide neutrals are limited to 2 touches and must work up and down the line in order to create a good passing angle. Rotate teams.

Coaching Points

- How quickly can we get the ball from one side to the other?

- Calculate the risk of a pass with the reward

- Keep possession and play at speed in order to force defenders into poor positions

- Movement to create space and support play

- Use the neutrals effectively / create 2v1s

- Under/overlap, short or long pass, give and go, dribble to space.

Progressions

- Target player switches with the person who passes it to them

- Change size of play area

- Limit touches

8v7 w/ Wide 2v1s (30 mins)

Set up a basic Attack vs Defence. The Def. (Blue) have to get compact within the 'Tuchel Lines' when dropping towards their own goal. When in possession, they must quickly get big and get out in order to counter attack towards the 3 small goals at speed. (See next diagram).

The Red team on attack must look to stretch the field, creating space and passing angles all over. The 2 full backs start deep on the halfway line, when appropriate they can overlap the wingers to create a 2v1 to cross the ball. One coach guides the Reds, one guides the Blues.

Coaching Points (Attack)

- Movement between the midfield and defensive lines (Zone 14)

- Try to disrupt positioning / organization of defence with checking

- Expose wide areas, Attacking Mid or Full Back join Winger to create 2v1

Coaching Points (Defence)

- Quick Press to win the ball back (DM's)

- Maintain shape at all costs

- If Fullback is dragged wide to deal with Winger, DM must drop into place

- Counter Attack with speed.
