Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warmup

Warmup (15 mins)

Intervals:

3 games of 5 minutes for rondo with 1 minute rest

Setup:

40x40 grid; 2 teams of six; 2 neutrals on each end line; Each team has a ball, passing and moving to transfer to/from neutrals; Progress to 1 ball 5v5+4, score by getting ball to other endline and back

Coaching Points:

~Identify Pointman (#9) and Captain (#6) for communication; ~Press right away if ball is lost; ~If attack gets organized, so do we (defense), Captain needs to take charge (vocal); Introduce "See one, screen one"

SSG (30 mins)

Intervals:

4-5 games of 5 minutes (rotate neutrals each game) with 1 minute rest

Setup:

5v6 half field game as shown; Attacking team in 4-2, defending team in 2-3; Ball starts with different teams by coach; Targets can be used as bumpers; 6 goal game

Coaching Points:

~See one, screen one positioning to take away vertical pass (check shoulder for targets/goals); Distance from attacker: "as ball arrives, I arrive"; Cues to press: poor touch, bouncing ball; facing backwards; MENTALITY - lose possession -> win it back!; If beat, recover centrally behind ball

Progression:

+ Add #9 for red so that it's 6v6 if attack too successful

+ Go to full width of field if defense too successful

Coaching Points:

~Ball in GK hands (or goal kick): retreat to line of confrontation; Role of #9: keep ball on same side of field (focus on weakside CB); #7/11 "see one, screen one"; #8/10: take away middle; #6: Captain (be VOCAL)
