1v1 (With Speed Option) - Coerver (20 mins)

Practice Organisation:

*Two teams with a ball each, each player stood approx 14yds from the goal line.

*2 small goals 12yds apart, and a shooting line 6yds from the goals (you must be past this line to score).

*First player dribbles out and gets inside goal line to score.

*Once he has shot, he now becomes the defender against the other teams attacker.

*As soon as the player has entered the goal line the next attacker from the other team can go.

*The sequence continues with shooters defending, until a time limit is up or 1 team reaches a set score.

Progressions:

*Swap the side they attack from.

*Adjust the poistion of the goals to make easier (closer) or harder (further).

Learning Objectives:

1. To improve decision making and use of speed to create goal scoring chances.

2. If space is in front of the attacker, do we attack qucikly?

3. If an opponent is in front of us, we may need to use a feint move to get into shooting zone.

4. Reaction to turnover. (Attack to Defense).

4 v 4 (+ 3 Neutrals) (15 mins)

Suitable for 8's - 18's. Simply reduce pitch size as players get older.

This game should end with the players playing predominantly one and two touch, wothout the coach having to put those restrictions on the game. Very little dribbling/turning.

4 Reds v 4 Blues, + 3 Neutral Yellows. No player is restricted in where they can go. The key to success for the team in possession ( Reds at the moment ) is to maintain their disciplne and stay roughly between the two cones as indicated. This way the player with the ball will have more options. More triangles are created and the 4 defenders ( Blues at the moment ) should struggle to regain possession.

As soon as the defending team make a regain the game continues and they should make their way to the gaps between the cones as quickly as possible.

Learning Objectives
