Cruyff Change of Direction (15 mins)

1) Introduce cryuff move

In groups of 3. Ball out 3 yards. Player walks to ball and gets in position to do cruyff:

+ Plant foot perpendicular to walking direction

+ Plant foot slightly ahead of ball so room for ball to travel

+ Knee slightly leaning back to change direction

+ Ready to take back ball with big toe

+ Add in a big fake with upper body to make it look like going to kick ball

+ Take ball away with opposite foot

Players dribble out and do cruyff and pass to next in line.

Switch to left foot.

Players dribble out and do cryuff while a passive defender follows. Do cruyff opposite side of defender.

Compete - iSoccer style - dribble out 5 yards and turn with right, dribble back and turn with left. Complete as many as possible in 20 seconds. Other two players count.

Blue sets up with back 4 + 3 CM + 1 CF

White sets up with front 3 + 3 CM

White's front 6 work together to maintain possession in tight space against 3 center mids. Once CMs win ball they play out of possession and blue tries to maintain possession.

15 passes = goal for white

15 passes = goal for blue. 3 touch restriction

Blue should start just outside of center grid to practice getting wide upon winning possession.

Coaching Points:

+ White: play 1 and 2 touch to move ball quickly in tight space. Defensively need to apply immediate pressure and compact the field after losing possession.

+ Blue: maximize space and move ball quickly over entire space.

Progression:

+ Add goals for blue to make directional.

+ After 10 passes, white can attack the goal. Add in an outside back that joins into attack for white to provide width.
