Warm-Up: Rondo (10 mins)

Description

Keep players in a big enough circle to be successful. For younger or less able groups, start without a defender. The important points to get right first are:

- 2 touch max

- Do not let the ball stop rolling

- Do not pass straight back to the person who passed to you

This should begin to develop the basic skills needed to be successful against 1 defender. You can start the defender as a 'passive defender'. This will likely need to be you as the coach because the kids will want to win the ball back.

If necessary, make multiple circles. I prefer no more than 6 - 8 players in the circle.

Activity 1: Pass and Receive (10 mins)

Description

Set up 2 different colored cones 3 yards apart. Line up a couple of players 5 yards away on a seperate cone. 1 player stands between the colored cones. The first person in line passes to the Player between the cones and calls a color. The player must receive the ball with one touch taking it towards (around the outside of) that color cone. They then dribble to the back of the line, the passer takes their place.

Can be progressed to opposite colors, and/or competition - first line to make 10 passes.

Coaching Points

Check in and out. It is important that the receiving player has enough space to be able to guide the ball around the cone with one touch - the angle must be right. If they are standing directly between the cones or too close to the, then it will fail. Have them back up.

Pass and Receive with inside of the foot.

Activity 2: 3+3v3 (+2) (15 mins)

Description

30x35 field. A simple pass and move game with slight defensive pressure and a transitional element. Team A's goalkeeper starts with the ball. When he passes the ball out, a defender from the middle (C) enters the box to try and win posession.

- When GK has the ball, the 3 players must get into shape to receive the ball.

- After 3 passes, attempt to switch the play to box 'B'.

- If successful, first pass goes to GK and then team B get into shape.

- When GK B passes out, a new defender enters to win posession.

- When defenders win the ball, quickly switch boxes

- Ball starts again from opposite GK

- You CAN use the GK when keeping possession

Key Points

- Width and Depth

- Play at different heights when possible

- Inside foot pass

Activity 3: 3v3+4 (15 mins)

Description

In the same 30x35 space, play 3v3 with 4 neutrals. Remember width, depth and balance. Players can only tackle their mark, they can however intercept stray passes. The idea is to lose your mark and play to a neutral as early as possible.

Play at different heights and in different lines. Don't forget to check in and out. Adjust the speed of play.
