Football Problem

FOOTBALL PROBLEM

* OUR TEAM IS NOT GOOD AT REGAINING THE BALL FROM THE OPPONENT. OUR PLAYERS ARE GENERALLY TOO PASSIVE AND GIVE THEIR OPPONENTS TOO MUCH TIME AND SPACE TO RECEIVE, PASS, SHOOT OR RUN WITH THE BALL. WE MUST IMPROVE OUR ABILITY TO DEFEND MORE AGGRESIVELY AS A TEAM AS WELL AS INDIVIDUALLY.

* GROUPS BLUE A AND RED C HAVE A BALL EACH. THE PRACTICE STARTS WITH A1 PASSING THE BALL TO B1. A1 THEN RUNS AROUND THE CENTRAL CONE TO RECEIVE THE BALL BACK FROM B1. AT THE MOMENT A1 STARTS THEIR RUN AROUD THE CONE, D1 ALSO STARTS TO RUN AROUND THE OPPOSITE CENTRAL CONE.

* A1 MUST NOW TRY TO BEAT D1 IN A 1 V 1 TO ENTER THE PENALTY BOX AND FINISH ON GOAL. D1 CAN ONLY DEFEND IN THE GRID AND IS NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER THE PENALTY BOX.

AFTER THE ACTION HAS FINISHED THE PLAYERS INVOLVED MOVE AS FOLLOWS:

- B1 TO GROUP A (BRING BALL FROM A1).

- D1 GOES BACK TO GROUP D (LINE UP AT THE BACK).

- NEXT SEQUENCE IS C1 PASSING TO D2 WITH B2 DEFENDING.

* 3 V 3 + GOALKEEPERS.

* A FIELD OF APPROX. 30M X 25M WITH 2 BIG GOALS AND PLENTY OF BALLS NEXT TO THE GOALS.

* THE COACH WITH BALLS ON THE SIDELINE.

* THE TEAM IN POSSESSION MUST KEEP A DIAMOND SHAPE TO MAKE COMBINATION PLAY POSSIBLE.

* THE ATTACKERS CAN SCORE FROM ANY POSITION ON THE FIELD, THEREFORE THE DEFENDERS MUST MARK CLOSELY AND DEFEND AGGRESIVELY EVERYWHERE.

* SINCE IT'S A CONDITIONING GAME THE INTENSITY MUST BE HIGH. THEREFORE THER ARE NO STOPS FOR THROW-IN'S, CORNERS, FREE KICKS OR GOAL KICKS. THE GOALKEEPER OF THE TEAM THAT SHOULD HAVE HAD THE THROW-IN, CORNER OR FREE KICK IMMEDIATELY FEEDS A NEW BALL (WITHIN 3 SECONDS OTHERWISE THE COACH FEEDS A BALL TO THE OTHER TEAM).

* PLAY 12 GAMES OF 1 MINUTE WITH 3 MINUTES REST BETWEEN THE GAMES AND A LONGER (6 MINUTE) BREAK AFTER THE 6TH REPETITION.
