stage 1 progression 2

SET UP: 12 X 12 GRID. 2 or 3 grids depnding on number.

4 players in the corner areas, 2 players in the middle as the central pivot points (center mids). Supple of balls. Now a defender has been added to increase the pressure

ACTIVITY:

Pass the ball around in 1 and 2 touch patterns. Use any combinations using the middle players as often as possible (#8 or #10). Now we can look for movement from the corner players also to join in the combination. Now also, if corner players make a move down the line for a combination they continue that run to the cone they are passing to.

so now we have defensive pressure and increased complexity.

COACHING POINTS:

same as previous

Now how do our midfielders play off each other.

are players static or always looking for a little bit of a different angle
