Teaching the game (10 mins)

Set Up:Max 8Wx10L Adjust size based on ability of the players

Organization: 3vs1 play must be seen as a game and not as a drill, exercise or an activity to keep players busy. 3vs1 allows players to become comfortable on the ball with minimal pressure to make decisions. Each touch on the ball encourages players to make decisions because each time it is a different problem to solve as there is pressure from the defender.

Good Teachers of the game will be able to:

1. Have players recognize it is a game realisitc situation.

2. Provide players with scenerios where 3vs1 could take place in a game and relate it to training.

3. Observe, assess, correct and re-evaluate if and when play breaks down using the prinicples of play.

4. Incorporate a goal to increase intensity and provide a key element of a session which is direction.

Coaching Notes:

Success is:

1. Ability to be mobile and be in good positions...(See Session Plan: 3vs1, Possession with Transition)

2. Ability to make 30 consecutive passes

3. Ability to understand the difference between 'First Touch' & 'Touch Direction'...(See Session Plan: 3vs1, Passing)

Diagonal Gates (30 mins)

Instructions: 4v4 Diagonal Gate Game

- Each team team has a goal at opposite corners which are occupied by a player in each gate. This will leave 2 players from each team in the middle to compete 2 vs. 2.

- The team in possession objective is to get the ball to one of their teammates occupying a "Gate" (goal), For the team in possession to score they must successfully play a pass into the gate and it must be received by their teammate.

- Once the pass is successful the game is continious, player who received dribbles or passes to teammate in the grid, player who scored must leave the grid and occupy the "Gate"

- This game is flowing, once the team was successful in scoring in one gate they can't score in that same gate until they've lost and regained possession or have scored in the other goal. This creates forward direction (positive play)

- If the ball goes out of play, it is re-started with kick in's. Players can score directly from a kick in.

- To encourage speed of play, give them a 4 second kick in condition.
