Progression.

Using the reds as an example, following on they reds are still passing around the pitch after 5passes the ball must go into the keeper this time,a red play must get into the end zone and 'support' the keeper/target man and recieve off him to play back out into the pitch. The black do the same

Building on the coaching points;

Can they support quickly

Can supporting player open up to recieve and play out on one touch

Progression;

Swap over between supporting player and target player/keeper

Limit touches

Limit passes before it comes into target player

Change que from number of passes to a trigger word from coach so players have to look up and play forward quicker.

4v4 Transitions in Possession

Teams play 4v4 with a keeper each,the game plays to normal rules apart from one player must stay in the attacking zone ie one red player must stay in A at all times and one player from black must stay in B at all times.

The game is shown above we're red's have stolen possession the idea is to play forward asap to the lone red target player and then all the remaining reds to get forward in support as soon as possible ,blacks can recover but must leave one player in their zone.

Coaching Points:

• Work together to defend as a unit

• Attempt to regain possession quickly.

• Immediately look to switch the ball on gaining possession.

• Travel quickly to support the play.

• Travel as the ball travels - get there quickly

• Correct timing and distance of support is vital

• Quality of passing to target players must be high.
