Instructions:

FIFA 11 Warm-Up

- Each exercise is ran 2x

- Jog back to the start line - use as recovery

- Try to have each pair be in sync/unison

- Next pair doesn't start until pair in front reaches first cones

1) Simple Jog down.

2) "Open the Gate": Drive knee straight up, then twist rotating out; Alternate legs.

3) "Close the Gate": Knee comes up but at a right angle to the body, then twist rotating inward; Alternate legs.

4) "Circle Partner": Pair runs to first cone, then still facing forward, side shuffle towards each other, going around one another in a tight circle, then shuffle back out to their side of the channel. Run forward to second cone and repeat.

5) "Jump with Shoulder contact": Pair runs to first cone, then still facing forward, side shuffle towards each other, and jump to bump shoulders, land softly and shuffle back out to their side of the channel. Run forward to the second cone and repeat.

6) Sprint to the second cone, decelerate to then backpedal to the first cone; sprint to the third cone, decelerate to then backpedal to the second cone, etc.

7) 75% pace sprint through the channel to opposite end.

8) "Bounding": Drive the knee up as you "jump/bound" across the channel; opposite arm should come up as your knee comes up; each "step" is a new bound (think long-jump strides).

9) "Plant & Cut": Pairs run across one another to the first cone and plant/cut to then go to cone two; zig-zag across one another through the length of the channel

Passing & Receiving (20 mins)

Passing & Receiving:

Set-up: 10-12 players within an area and move randomly around it.

- Start with a ratio of one ball for every five or six players.

- Number players 1-10/12 etc.

- Balls start with number 1 and 7, and is passed around in sequence according to their numbers.

- Once players pass it they move to another part of the grid.

- Once ball reaches last player, he passes to number 1 to begin process again.

Progressions:

1) Add footballs until exercise has a ratio of 1:3 and 2:5.

2) U9's > Can you take two or three touches instead of 5 or 6?

2b) U10-U11 > First pass is short, the next pass is long. The next player in sequence must therefore move closer or further away to receive.

3) First pass is low, the next is high. Again receiving players must move into positions to receive the pass either along the ground or in the air.

Coaching Points: Move the ball quickly and accurately, position yourself with an open body. Are you peaking?

Scoring: As a group, can you keep four / five / six balls alive for 60 seconds?

Caution: Ensure players are not static or remain in one area/position and are moving around the area when not in possession (this will happen more and more as more footballs are involved).

Players are split into three teams of four. THe groups on either side are trying to play through the midfield line. In the center, the emphasis is on the players who will pressure the ball, support cover and balance. They must win possession back as quickly as possible. If the middle group win the ball, they play to the team on the opposite side and are replaced with the team who conceded possession.
