Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warm-Up: 3 Square

Warm-Up: 3 Square (20 mins)

25x10: middle zone = 5x10, end zones = 10x10

- 4v2 in one zone (2 is from players waiting on outside of middle zone)

- restarts with server to opposite end.

- defenders look to win the ball and play to team in the opposite grid

- possesing team turnover, out-of-bounds, means that the possessing team becomes the middle team.

* Must get 6 non-consecutive passes before passing to other zone.

- Play 1 min. Team defending at time owes something (push-ups, etc)

** Mix intensive dynamic movements into the warm-up.

2 Zone: Press (20 mins)

Area: 60x40 (Goal Zone: 40x40, Possession Zone: 20x20)

- All restarts with the possessing team (surrounding the area closest to server) using neutrals to keep the ball (4v4+2)

- Defending team (Red) looks to win the ball and go to goal using the neutrals making it 7v6

- If counter-press is broken, the team now defending the goal has to find the server to restart play.

- Play 4 min games and switch roles - lowest score owes someting!

Coaching Points:

*When Possessing Team loses it:

- On the ball: 2 closest = ball-oriented forcing outside.

- Around the ball: tighly mark the next closest passing opportunities.

- Away from the ball: CB's bully the striker, sideways on, etc.
