Peeling Off and Bending Runs (20 mins)

Warm-up: Peeling Off and Bending Runs

Groups of 8-10. Grid size 8 yards wide by 10-15 long. Distance from player 1 to 2 around 10-15 yds. Player 1 starts with a dribbling touch forward which is the cue for player 2 to make a peeling off run as shown in the diagram on the left above. As soon as player 2 gets wide with his/her body sideways on, player 1 passes the ball to him/her. Player 2 controls the ball forward with his/her first touch using his/her front foot and dribbles to the other end of the grid and passes to the first in line and goes to the back of the line. Both ends are going at the same time in a clockwise direction. Switch to counter clockwise direction after a while.

The progressions are shown on the diagram on the right. The top half shows the first progression, where player 2 makes a bending run for a through ball. The bottom half shows the second progression, where the two players do a combination of in-to-feet, back-and-through into a bending run.

This is another non-functional activity that is included since it is conducive for working on the principles of Peeling off and Bending runs.

Key coaching points: time runs to stay onside (cones are ‘last defender’). Open body to see forward and look over shoulder before getting ball. Peel off far enough away from cone to receive a pass to feet that cone ‘defender’ cannot intercept.

2v2+1 Possession (15 mins)

2v2+1 Possession Game: 12 x 15 yard rectangle

Organization: Groups of 5 play 2v2 possession with a neutral player who always plays

with the team in possession.

Scoring: Teams score a point every time they make 5 consecutive passes.

Objectives: Players learn support, support angle, and when to hold on to the ball and

when to pass first time. Are they peeling off the defender or standing still? If defender follows the attacker can they make a run in behind?

Progressions:

1. Neutral player only has one touch. This teaches the players to quickly support the

neutral player.

2. Neutral player has unlimited touches, but all other players have only two touch

max. This teaches the neutral player to provide quick support and be constantly

involved and dictate the rhythm of play by holding the ball when appropriate and

playing and supporting when appropriate.

3. Play 3v3 plus neutral and neutral player cannot pass the ball back to the player

who passed it to him.

GK-4-2-1 vs 4

Set-up:

1/3 of field.

Organization

- Blue team scores by switching it from one side of the field to the other.

- Black team scores by going to goal.

***Progression: Can you give ball to the 4 defending players and see how quickly our 6 transition to defend to win the ball and then transition to spread out once they win it.

Progression:

i. #10 needs to peel off inside and try to get on the ball. Can dribble across the line and then play it back and keep possession

ii. Ball has to be played through to one of the outside backs, then they step on it and turn and keep possession. Where should the other players be in relation to this.

Coaching Points

Body shape when showing for and receiving the ball

Build-up Phase

Build up Phase with Coordinated Movements of each player.

#1 plays it to #5 who has peeled off with hips open. #1 also supports #5 by sliding over a bit to be an option in case #5 needs to play back.

*Whichever side of the field the ball travels to the closest center mid (#6 or #8) provides suport to player in possession of the ball aby peeling off defender and the other cm needs to stretch the field by moving diagonally forward.

In this case #6 has peeled off with hips open to field by dropping in a position of support for #5. #8 has pushed up diagonally to have good balance and help make the field as big as possible.

#3 has peeled off to be an option for #5 with hips open to field.

#10 checks into space opposite of 8 and moves to side of the ball to be an option.
