Warm Up (1100) (10 mins)

Organization:

1. Open area

2. 12 Players (2 teams of 6) set up as shown

3. 6 balls

Instructions:

1. Three players from the red and three players from the yellows each start with a ball

2. The idea is to pass the ball into a player that does not have a ball and is not in the same color (e.g. red into yellow and vice versa)

3. The player that receives the ball stops it, the passer then closes down the ball

4. The exercise is then repeated by the receiving player playing into a new player and the passer moving away to become a passing option

Coaching Points:

1. Close down quickly

2. Angle of approach to make play predictable

3. Slow down as you approach the attacker

4. Bend the knees, stay sideways on to the ball

Progression/Regression :

1. P – Allow receiving players to move the ball into new attacking space, defender must adjust as they close down

2. P - Allow players the opportunity to tackle, the player that receives the ball must now find a pass quickly before the defender comes into close down

3. R – Move back to working in pairs

3. The attacker must attempt to score by dribbling the ball through the small goal on the opposite end line

4. A point is scored for a successful dribble or tackle

5. The defending player then repeats the exercise by playing to the second attacker

6. Rotate the defending player every 5 attempts

Coaching Points:

1. Close down quickly

2. Angle of approach to make play predictable

3. Slow down as you approach the attacker

4. Bend the knees, stay sideways on to the ball

5. Prepare for next action - Delay or Tackle

Progression/Regression:

2. P – Increase the size of the scoring area to include the entire end line

3. R – Allow defenders to close dow n as soon as they m ake the pass

4. R – Reduce the width of the area so there is less attacking space
