1. Passing & Receiving Peeling Off and Bending Runs (15 mins)

Warm-up: Peeling Off and Bending Runs

Groups of 8-10. Grid size 8 yards wide by 10-15 long. Distance from player 1 to 2 around 10-15 yds. Player 1 starts with a dribbling touch forward which is the cue for player 2 to make a peeling off run as shown in the diagram on the left above. As soon as player 2 gets wide with his/her body sideways on, player 1 passes the ball to him/her. Player 2 controls the ball forward with his/her first touch using his/her front foot and dribbles to the other end of the grid and passes to the first in line and goes to the back of the line. Both ends are going at the same time in a clockwise direction. Switch to counter clockwise direction after a while.

The progressions are shown on the diagram on the right. The top half shows the first progression, where player 2 makes a bending run for a through ball. The bottom half shows the second progression, where the two players do a combination of in-to-feet, back-and-through into a bending run.

This is another non-functional activity that is included since it is conducive for working on the principles of Peeling off and Bending runs.

Key coaching points: time runs to stay onside (cones are ‘last defender’). Open body to see forward and look over shoulder before getting ball. Peel off far enough away from cone to receive a pass to feet that cone ‘defender’ cannot intercept.

3. Diagonal Target Game (15 mins)

Diagonal Targets Game:

Grid 20 x 20

- 2v2+1 in the middle of the field wth two additional players on each team acting as targets

- 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

Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 4. Crossing & Finishing

4. Crossing & Finishing (15 mins)

Crossing and Finishing Progression:

1) A takes diagonal touch and finishes on goal while C is the chaser and provides pressure on shooter without winning the ball.

2) B takes a diagonal touch down the line and plays 2v1 (A+B vs C). A looks to get open while C is trying to prevent B from penetrating towards goal and preventing pass to A.

(Purpose is not for defender to keep winning, need to teach decision making for players on the ball)

Rotation: A > B > C

3) Switch servers

Coaching Points: Can finish laces across the goal to far post, or finish inside of the foot near post.On the cross, players need to finish near post with front foot. Why? if they let it come across body, it's more difficult and gives opportunity for defender to win the ball.

7v7 (25 mins)

Roles of Each Player in 7v7: 1-2-3-1

#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 Defensive Midfield: the number 6 player dictates the rhythm of possession. He needs to learn how to support the attack from behind the ball.

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

#9 Role of the Center Forward: Player 9 provides depth and an outlet from high pressing opponents. She needs to learn to stretch the field and stay high and central and be available for the long pass option from the back.
