Technique + Finishing (15 mins)

Technical + Shooting Circuit

1. Ball Mastery: tiki-taka, pull push, inside-outside cut, dribble cut, dribble cut with sole, outside touch, tiki-taka + roll,

2. Changes of direction: inside cut (fake shot), sole across cut (fake shot), Sole-V, Sole-behind, overs exit outside,

3. Peels off to receive ball with hips open. As dribbles past last cone and gets head up.

Opens up to then play a pass to 4.

4. Peels off, and dribbles at big cones. Works on different 1v1 moves. (cut unders, fake shots, scissors, drag cut under exit, the hop)

Same thing on other side. Once player finishes on one side they move over to other side to work on right foot finish.

Coaching Points: Timing, crisp passes, speed of action. It's not okay to go 50%.

P&R: Peeling Off & Bending Runs (15 mins)

Warm-up: Two Player Combination and Peeling Off

A. In the left grid, we use two balls, one at each end line. Inside players starting positions in the middle and at the same time they both peel off to the side and receive a pass, control it with first touch and play it to the opposite end line with second touch and return to the middle of the gird facing a new end line.

B. In the middle grid, use two balls, one at each end line. Again, the two inside players start in the middle and peel off and play an ‘in-back-through’ passing combination with the end line players and play it to the other end line and return to the middle to start again facing the new end line.

C. Progress to playing 2v1 to target in the grid, as shown in diagram below. It’s actually 1v1 inside the grid plus using the end line player as support to make it 2v1. The end line player cannot enter grid and is used for possession support and for playing through balls. Each inside player defends one end line and attacks the other end line and scores by passing the ball to the end line target. Only inside player can score.

All the passing combination and peeling off movement practiced in the warm up variations above should now come in handy to beat the defender in the grid.

In the diagram above, the red attacker combines with his end line player to get behind defender and score by playing to the target at the other end. Now the roles are reversed and the red player defends and the white player is attacking towards the other target. Give the inside players 3-5 seconds to catch their breath and get into new positions to transition going the other way.

Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Diagonal Target Game + 3v3 Game

Diagonal Target Game + 3v3 Game (15 mins)

Diagonal Targets Game: 10-12 players

- 3v3+1 in the middle of the field wth two additional players on each team acting as targets

- Olders: may have to play 3v3 +1 in middle. Don't want any players sitting out.

- Players in possession are trying to play one of their targets. Once ball is played they take their position.

- Play 4 minute games. Switch neutrals and make coaching points from observations.

Scoring: (youngers) get one point once they play it into target. Progress to target player needs to keep possession by connecting with one of the teammates to get one point

(Olders) get one point for going from one target to another.

Losing team has fitness!!!

i. progression: Player who plays it into target, other player needs to take target position. All need to be alert and aware of what's going on.

Coaching Points: Players need to utilize space and opening up when target gets the ball. Can they take a good first touch away from pressure? Can they receive with hips open to field?

Finish with 3v3 Target Game

11v11 (40 mins)

Roles of Each Player in 9v9 in Build-up Phase: 1-4-4-2

40 min 11v11 game.

Coaching Points:

1. Team Shape when in possession!

Are players peeling off?

#1: Role of the Goal Keeper: keepers should learn how to support the back line in possession, how to distribute and be the first line of attack instead of just punt the ball long. Keepers need to learn to pass the ball on goal kicks rather than just kick it long.

#4&5: Role of the Center Backs: The back line plays a vital role in possession. The defenders need to learn how to support the midfield in possession, how to make the field big and how to help relieve pressure. The defense also plays a crucial role in switching the point of attack.

#6 Role of the Center Midfield: the number 6 & 8 players dictate the rhythm of possession. They need to learn how to support the attack from behind the ball and read each other's movements. They should never be flat.

#2, #3, #7 & #11 Role of the Wide Players: Players 2 & 3 provide width and penetration. They need to learn to stay wide and open body to the field and provide support to the midfielders.

#9 & #10 Role of the Two - Forwards: One of these Players preferably the #9 needs to provide depth and needs to learn to stretch the field and stay high and central and be available for the long pass option from the back. The other forward preferably #10 needs to look to check into the pockets of space by peeling off defenders and linking with the 6 & 8.
