Game Training


Half pitch plus 3 metres into other half.

Players - Blue side GK , 2,3,4,5,6, 8 & 10 ( 8 players), attacking side 3, 6,8,10,7,9 & 11 (7 players)  15 players in total.

Get players to go to their starting positions from the weekend.

This way I can replicacte the shape issue, which should replicate the problem.

I can then reset the shape, so the players can see the improvement

Make sure players know to return to those positions prior to the restart.

Don't restart until everyone is in position as we are coaching against an organized opponent.

Make clear we want the blue side to press high and press hard, the same as Richmond did at the weekend - this will not work if insufficent pressure is applied.

Game rules.

Blue side plays out from GK each time. Their task is to combine to maintain possession and through combination play through to the 10 in the centre circle.

If the ball goes out of play, the ball restarts again from the GK.

If the white team are to press high, with their 10 combining with 9 to put pressure on our 3 & 4.  If the white side wins the ball they have 10 seconds to get an attempt on goal.

Offside rule applies.

Team Task - Play the ball out from the back by combining with our 6 & 8 to get the ball to our 10 in the middle third by maintaining possession.

Use the white board to demonstrate positions and reinforce the team task.

Ask them to be patient, but maintain ball speed.

Get them playing, then work through the checklist.

Start, Organization, Attitude, Ability, Understanding, Shape, Self.

When happy re-affirm the team task with the first intervention.

Player tasks / cues.
