Warm-Up: 10-9-8... (15 mins)

Area = two grids of 5x5

4 teams of 5

- 5v1 for 10 seconds (Coach counts down!) or ball turned over. Team of 5 has one-touch only. Ball starts with attackers.

- If ball is turned over, defender goes to other side of the square.

- if ball is retained for complete 10 seconds, defender returns to back of the line.

- Possessing team that is still going, and defending team that is done win. Losers owe something.

Coaching Points:

"Ball-Oriented Defending"

***Mix intentive dynamic movements into the warm-up (short and sharp movements)

4v2 Transition Game (15 mins)

20x10 (Two 10x10 smaller areas)

Blue possess around 2 reds, if 2 reds win it they play the 2 reds in the other grid and join other grid. 2 blues go and defend the 4 reds.

***When ball is lost, WIN IT BACK! - 2 "ball-oriented players" forcing outside and the rest mark next closest pass.

- Play 2 mins- team defending at time owes something (i.e. 3 knee's to chest)

5v4 Counter-Pressing Game (20 mins)

Area: 40x30

- All restarts with the team of 4

- Team of 5 looks to score on either goal while team of 4 tries to win it and keep it.

- If team of 4 wins it, they may only use the GK in the half the ball is in.

- Play 2 min games

Coaching Points:

*When team of 5 loses it:

- On the ball: 2 closest = ball-oriented forcing outside.

- Around the ball: tighly mark the next closest passing opportunities.

- Away from the ball: Players furthest from the ball must bully opposition expecting the big ball.

6v6 Conditioning Game (Overload Fitness) (30 mins)

**Uninterupted Play: Coach within the run of play only. No stoppages. Keep balls available for restarts.

- Attack in a 2-1-2

- Defend in a 2-2-1

- Emphasize Ball-oriented defender's responsibilities when losing it based on support/location of the field and how that relates to defenders around and away from the ball.

NOTE: Inactive players should be doing fitness specific to game demands on the side. Make sure to switch players in and out between each game and not during.

*** Make sure to lead team through a proper cool down to end training.
