Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Technical Rotation - Space in Front
Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Technical Rotation - Space in Front

Technical Rotation - Space in Front (10 mins)

Organization:

20x10 yard area

5 yard end zone

Cones 5 yards from end zone

2 teams

Plenty of soccer balls

 

Instructions:

Player 1 dribbles out to score in the end zone

As soon as player 1 passes the cones, player 2 (from opposite team) dribbles out

Player 1 is now a defender, player 2 is trying to get into the end zone

As soon as this 1v1 game is complete, player 3 dribbles out and player 2 is now the defender

Process repeats for set time period or until an amount of points are scored

 

Coaching:

Use of 1st touch - make the ball travel in the direction you want to go

Speed with the ball - bigger dribbling touches allows player to travel faster

Recognize the angle that the defender is pressuring from - opportunity to cut in behind and use their momentum against them

Can you score quickly and not be pressured at all? Drive into space and score before defender can turn and recover

Technical Isolation (10 mins)

Organization:

30x20 yard area

Players split evenly across set up

Plenty of soccer balls

 

Instructions:

Players dribble out, touching the ball with every step

Players perform Chop. Players on the right of the grid use right foot, players on the left of the grid use left foot

Players cross sides as the dribble to the opposite end line

 

Coaching:

Touch the ball with every step

Make final touch prior to chop close to the body

Hop with non dribbling foot, ahead of the ball

As hopping foot is landing, the inside of the dribbling foot should make contact with the ball forcing it to the opposite side (right foot, ball moves left)

Accelerate into space, bigger touches to increase speed

1v1 - Pressure Recovering (10 mins)

Organization:

30x20 yard area

2 teams (max 4 per team)

Plenty of soccer balls

 

Instructions:

Yellow defends, Burgundy attacks

Yellow starts the activity by passing the ball to Burgundy player

On Burgundy's 1st touch, play 1v1

Burgundy scores a point by dribbling through either gate on the end line or by entering the scoring half and shooting into goals (Depending on equipment/conditions, use pop up goals)

Players rotate after set time

 

Coaching:

Can 1st touch take you in direction of the closest goal?

Mentality - do you need a move/turn/skill to win? Move quickly and score before the defender can block you

If defender gets across - now what? Force your way through? Turn into pressure?

Opportunity for Ronaldo chop

 

Progress/Regress:

Move the attacker closer or further away from closest goal, depending on success. Eventually we want the defender to be able to block the goal, this gives us the moment to teach the above mentioned techniques.
