2v1 With Two Wide Goals (15 mins)

2v1 with Two Wide Goals: Field 12 x 15 yards. Four Players

Rules:

- Two players with a ball situated in the center of the field alternately attack the goals, each defended by one opponent only.

- Objective is for attacker to dribble across the oppsing goal-line despite the opponent's active defence of it

- After 10 attacks or 90 seconds of attacking, both teams switch roles and positions.

- the defender has touched the ball three times

- one of the attackers has managed to dribble the ball across the goal-line

- one attack infringes the rules

- the ball runs across any end-line

Training Objectives:

- Lift your head while dribbling to be able to analyse the game situations

- Know when to pass and when to dribble;

- Try dribbling past the defender after having carried out a fake pass to the left or right

- Pass the ball on the run toward the right or left

- Wait for the best moment to pass (not too early and not too late) without penetrating in the range of action of the defender

- Communicate with your team before passing

- Pass the ball with speed and accuracy

- Adapt to the behaviour of the team-mate

- Receive the ball from either side while you are on the run

- Execute a tackle

- Select the best moment to tackle and know how to delay it

- Tackle in a side-on position and look out for the 1v1 situation.

- Anticipate the attacker's play, considering both the position of the player without the ball and the dribbling technique of the ball carrier.

Pass & Receive on the Run (15 mins)

Pass & Receive on the Run: Field 12 X 15 Yards

Rules:

- Two players on same team, always ten yards apart, attack the oppsing goal.

- As a pair, they pass and receive the ball on the run.

- After they manage to control the ball at one empty goal, they should turn around without delay to attack the opposite goal and so on.

Objective:

- Score 10 goals with 10 attacks

Progression:

- use less skilled foot

- have two pairs start at the same time from opposite goals, trying to sore 10 valid goals first.

A goal is not valid if..

- the distance between the two attackers has been less than 10 yards

- the player without the ball places him- or herself in front of the ball

Coaching Points:

Why should the attackers be 10 yards away from each other? (The closer they are to each other, the easier it is for the defender to win the ball).

There the timed pass must be received and controlled on the run by player 2, who ten returns the ball, passing it along the same goal-line back toward where player 1 had been. Player 3 awaits the pass in that corner and does the same procedure as player 1, passing to player 4, who starts from the same corner as player 2.

- Player 1 runs behind player 4 to proceed from that corner and player 2 runs behind player 3 to continue from that corner.

4. The left attacker may choose between a pass to the right or a fake.

Training Objective: to know the most efficient way to resolve the 2v1 situation.

5. A goal is considered valid only when the last control of the ball was excuted on the run.

Training objective: to receive and control the ball on the run.

6. Every team uses 15 seconds for attacking both goals as often as possible with a recovery of one minute before a new attempt is launched. Every team has four attempts to score a maximum number of goals.

Training objective: to launch quick attacks and commit few mistakes when playing under pressure

7. Both attackers must also use their less-skillful foot

Training objective: to stimulate play with the less-skillfull foot

8. During the development of the attacks, both forwards must switch positions

Training objective: to use the switch systematically

9. Both defenders may tackle in any part of the playing area. The attackers start from the center and may score in either goal area. Attackers and defenders switch functions after 10 attacks

Training objective: to create intentional 2v1 situation

10. Each team attacks and defends two 1 meter-wide cone goals. To score, a player must control the ball inside one of the opponent's two goals, set 12 meters away from each other.

Training objective: to ascertain the width in attack

By asking the attackers to score with a shot into a regular goal after they have learned to control the ball in the widely set goal areas, they will gain additional experience in the conclusion of their attacks.
