Scottish 4 player control work (15 mins)

Scottish 4 player control work

#1 2 players have a ball in their hands, one player without and a worker in the middle of them all. One player with the ball throws to the worker and the worker volleys the ball to the free player. The player who did not throw the ball now throws the ball to the worker and the worker volleys to the new open player. This sequence continues and the worker is to use opposite foot each time forcing him to use different parts of their foot to send the ball.

Coaching Points

Balls of your feet

eyes on the ball

be sure to use right foot then left foot

talk about why you may need to use the outside of the foot in the game

#2

Same set up as #1 but this time one feeder has the ball in the hands, the other 2 are at their feet. The worker receievs a pass, gives it back, receives a toss, heads it back, receives a pass from the other side and passes back. Then go back to the first passer and continue the sequence.

Coaching points

balls of feet

eyes to the ball

feeders should try to have the ball gone before the worker looks at them so that they have to track the ball and find it to play it. Worker dictates the speed of the ball movement.

At the highest level the passers are playing 1 touch and the feeder in the air tosses right after catching. Difficult to get that fast but it is the goal.

1 vs 1 Continuous

White team attacks the blue player in the middle and tries to get the ball to the other side.

The defender cannot stop the attacker until the attacker gets into the middle square.

The ball must be carried to the other side or passed but must be accurate. If the offensive team is successful, they get to continue attacking the same defender, if they lose the 1 vs 1 battle, the attacker who lost becomes the defender and now the other team attacks.

Coaching Points:

#1. Attacker uses the space before the square to gain speed and attack with pace.

#2. Be creative and try some of the individual moves that have been worked on.

#3. Talk to the defenders about proper defensive position and forcing the attacker onto their waek foot.

#4. Talk to all of the players about transition offense and defense and how that relates to a game scenario.

Crossing Game (30 mins)

Crossing Game

Make 2 18 yard boxes as the playing area with 2 goals and 2 teams.

Outside the 18 yard sideline is the space for the edge players to play. They cannot move into the opponents outside area nor can they enter into the field of play.

The goal is simple, the ball must be played wide before a goal can be scored.

Players on the outside have 2 touches, players on the inside have as many as they like. Feel free to change up the rules depending on the need for the group.

Coaching points

#1. Look wide but don't force it wide, if it's not there, keep possession.

#2. Try not to use 2 touches on the outside, have your head up on the reception and see if you can one time it in or need the 2nd touch.

#3. The ball does not have to be crossed, sometimes it's better to find a set pass instead or simply to bring the ball back to keep possession

#4. Decide the weight and position of the pass, a cross does not have to be high or back post to be effective.

#5. Players in the field of play must time their runs according to the cross, don't be in the box waiting for the cross and then have no momentum to make a solid attack at net.
