Description

As a team we play a 4-3-3. As we start to pick up some consistency with our defense, we have decided to look at our build up play and the tempo we attack.

As a squad we want to play at a high tempo with the majority of our attacks coming through our midfield onto the 9, 11 or 7.. This session looks at developing understanding between the 3 Cm's to play quickly.

Instruction

1. A ball is played in from a Yellow to the inside

2. The Blacks must then combine passes and find another player on the outside

3. The player who played the ball in then moves to another cone and forms a que if another player is there

Progressions

Can we play to one touch now ?

One of outside players joins to become def

Coaching Points

On inside - are we creating angles and playing with an open body (if we're straight on its harder to take a a touch)

Is there communication ?

Is it at game pace - We need to be as quick as possible in transition. TEMPO TEMPO TEMPO
