possession circle/arrival activity (10 mins)

Normally start a training session with the above, looks really simple but gets players involved straight away, particulalrly good with new players to feel part of the group has a good social aspect to it, means they get to learn names quickly and as the playaers have no choice who they go into the middle with they have to work with whoever they go in with. No set area size depends really on the number of players, players will try and cheat and make the area bigger to buy themsleves more time in possession.

Players on the outside keep the ball from the middle players. 2 players in the middle try to win the ball. If an outside player gives the ball away they go into the middle with the man on their right.

Depending on ability level of players limit number of touches on the outside, usually do 1 touch but might need to start with 2/3 touch.

3 colour passing (30 mins)

SETUP:

3 teams of 5 inside the area, each team has a ball. Move around the area passing the ball amongst own team. 5minutes maximum just to get players on the move, if players are stanidng still though keep doing basic passing part for longer

Area size depending on number of players, if teams aren't equal it doesn't matter can have one team with less players.

Goalkeepers can use hands as well as feet, to receive into hands need to communicate this to other players

PROGRESSION(S):

1 - play a one:two with someone from another team before passing to a teammate - again 5-10 minutes maximum, put emphasis on the communication talk to other players before and after passing help each other out

2 - possession game 2 teams combine to keep the ball off the other team, if defending team win the ball they become the attackers, team that gave the ball away become the defenders, quick changeover between attack and defence. Players need to stay switched on to changes in play. - 15 minutes, if one team stays in for too long step in and change the defending team. Add extra competition by timing the defending team which team wins the ball back quickest.

COACHING POINTS:

Communication - who are you passing to, where do you want the ball, which colour can you pass to, which team is the defending team.

quick passes move the ball quickly and with quality before getting closed down take as few touches as possible

Movement off the ball to create angles of support for the man on the ball

variety of passes both long and short - challenge players to attempt more difficult passes don't always take the safe option.

When switching the ball use a variety of pass type - taking note of the quality of pass, can receiving team play quickly?
