Team Learning Objectives

- Rotation to receive the ball in midfield areas

Session Organisation

- As shown, 1 team operates with 2 teams off resting

How to Play

- Ball starts from the GK and is played out to the centre backs. #5 and #6 must transfer the ball between one another before playing into midfield (trigger for rotational movement)

- Midfield four combine to play into #9 or #10 and join in for the ball to be laid off and then finished

- Next team enters the middle zone from the other end with the GK and back four transferring the ball around until ready to play in

Challenges

- TRY TO...

- Receive in a position in which you can see the passer and the goal upon receiving  (1/2 turn)

- Offer support both ahead of and behind the ball

- Rotate roles to get a player receiving the ball facing forwards

Progressions

- Vary rotational patterns

- Ball must be played through both FBs (who are on 3 touch)

- Strikers can finish from diagonal pass only

- CF link up play

- Remove mannequins. After attacking one team leaves 2 players to defend, eventually increasing numbers to create 4v4 in the middle

- Game becomes directional with both teams playing 2 strikers up against the 2 centre backs

*OPEN TO SSG

Tech/Tact Focus

- Timing of movement/rotation to receive

Physical Focus

- Game realistic

- Running over distance

Social Focus

- Teamwork

- Working off triggers

Psychological Focus

- Maintaining possession in tight areas

- Positivity in possession

Again everyone will do this

We can replicate on the other side depending on numbers.

Based on what we have done in the passing drills we can develop the playing through midfield

To score play has to go through midfield. if it become crowded we can reduce it to a 3v3 or 4v3

3v2 is in favour of the defensive side, allowing one midfield to join making a 3v3

Coaching points - quality of service into the midfield players A let the ball come across and do the work

B Pass safe side

midfield players - angle of support, lines of support and quality of combination play

front players movements/over laps/loads to create goal scoring chances facing forward.
