Develop rhythm and pattern to training habits/work

A. Starting group work across space with deisgnated touch sequence,

B. @ Half Line switch feet or starting foot of sequence

C. Players perform to destination line, wait for all behind to finish with active rest (foundation, ball touches, hop with sole, etc.)

***Once all working groups have completed, go back to start line with same touch sequence from C.

Initial Touch Series as follows:

Must be performed moving

If mistake occurs, no biggie, tells us you are trying

To master, same touch distances, same surfaces, same rhythm, same speed THEN...

Twist it, reverse it, add a hop/turn, roll or make 2 touches 1!!!

Activity I: Gauntlet (20 mins)

Organization of Session

Channels set up with 3 zones making up the Gauntlet. Add goal to top/end of guantlet.

3 defending players standing on the lines dividing the channel. Last defender is in goal and is a GK (can use hands)

Attacker starts at end of channel with a ball

DONE - If attacker dribbles out, is tackled out or defender wins and dribbles or passes out with other defenders to starting point of channel - attacking run over, rotate and start w/new attacker

Key Points

1. Once attacking player dribbles into first section, 1a. defender can join the space. This initial space can only be defended by this player, no other can join.

***OTHER defenders slide on their lines waiting for attacker to join the third in front of them, activating their defending pressure.

2. Once attacker gets into 2nd 3rd, 2a can join space and defend. 1a is done defending now, unless ball comes into their space.

3. When attacker gets into final 3rd, attempt to shoot/beat GK and score

***Defenders can only defend space in front of their starting line and only join once attacker joins***

Coaching Points

Attacking:

Keep the defender moving w/ following: move the ball, move your body or do both moving ball and body to sell one direction to go the other.

Dribble at angle to drag defender.

Attack defenders front foot

Explode thru the ball after move, even if mistake is made

Maintain man-man-ball positioning

Move self and ball off orginal line created with dribble, 1st touch or pass

Transition:

If attacker loses possession, focus is relentless pressure/attempt to win ball back first 4 seconds

If defender gains possession get ball to starting point of channel as fast as possible
