SAQ & Technical Practice (20 mins)

NY Stars Premier SAQ & Technical Practice

The Head Coach calls out a number from 1 to 4 and the player in the center of the four cones has to either move forwards or backwards while still facing the coach, touch the cone with the assigned number, and move back to the center as quickly as possible and await the next number. A series of numbers will be called for 20 to 30 seconds. Each player has to maintain a forward facing position and adjust their feet at speed to get to each cone and back. It is a reactive, psychological and defensively technical practice.

To progress the session we add the number 5 which incorporates a ball into the practice. When the number 5 is called the player will execute either a volley, pass, header, laces volley, two touch with pass etc. The condition for that number will be set by the Head Coach

Key Coaching Points:

-Posture when moving forwards and backwards towards the numbered cones.

-Reaction time from when the number is called.

-Get out to the cone and back to the center as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

-Adjustment of feet at a high tempo to ensure a smooth balanced movement.

-Execution of technique when number 5 is called.

-The role of the spare player is to test both teams while executing clever passes to create goal scoring opportunities and to keep possession.
