Passing Practice (10 mins)

Main Moment - Attacking

Key Principles - Controlled possession

Team Task -

WHAT - Can we create a midfield overload using a full back

WHO - Us GK, 2,3,4,5,6,8,10

Them - 9,7,11,8,6,5,4,2

WHERE - In the midfield third

WHEN - When our CB or midfield are on the ball and #7 #11 are narrow

WHY - So we outnumber the opposition in midfield to create goal-scoring opportunities

Set up

Create a 36 x25 metre playing area and split into three 12x25 areas.

How to play

Each team has a ball each and play at the same time. The ball can only travel to the next third. Whichever player doesn't play the forward pass then moves into the next third (to support, over/under lap). Once ball has reached the other GK, get set in your positions again (2 in each area).

Use the GK's to bounce the ball off.

Progression

- Play with one ball, one team attack and the other defend. Start with interception only to start.

Player tasks

When moving forward, can you move into a space where you can receive.

Game training 1 (20 mins)

Set up

Create an area from the top of the box to the halfway line and use the sides of the box as a continuation all the way to the halfway line. Mini goals at either end (or can play with no goals and GK patrolling the whole line).

How to play

Blue team set up in a 1-3-3-1 formation.

Red team set up in a 1-3-3-1

In possession #2 & #5 can use the wide channel with unlimited touches. Defending players can pressure in wide areas after #2 & #5's first touch but must not enter before first touch is taken.

All other normal footbal rules apply except no corners - play retarts with the GK whose team won the corner.

Player tasks

GK

- Can you play as quickly as possible to player in biggest space

#2 & #5

- When we have possession, can you get high and wide quickly

- Can you receive facing forward

- Mix play up by receiving balls to feet, through balls, balls over the top

- Can you make runs into the mid/att third

#4

- Can your first look on receiving be forward to hurt opposition (if compact centrally, maybe a diagonal ball for #2 #5)

#6

- Can you drop in deep to receive, this will be the cue for #2 #5 to start moving forwards high and wide

#6 #8

- Can you receive facing forwards

#10

- As ball is played wide in attacking half, can you create time and space with movement to attack goal

- Can you link/combine with FB to create crossing/shooting opportunities

#9

- When in possession, play high up the field to create space for FB and #10
