Pass and Move Positional Game Play (20 mins)

Set Up

Full field, split into 3 zones (defence, midfield, attack)

Organization

Players set up in game mode, 7v7

In game play, one player (minimum) must always be in each zone e.g. as attack progresses, one defender stays with opposition striker, centre mid is there to receive a cut back pass and so on

Defender and centre mid should stay central so that they can see the play and any potential counter attack, wide midfielders should track immediately and regain 3-2-1 shape when the ball is lost

Progressions

Limit touches to 2-3

Coaching points

Players are encouraged to shield the ball with the arm out until support arrives, check out/in to draw defenders away from space and limit their touches and switch the play

Working hard off the ball to get to space with a clear passing lane and letting the ball carrier know they are open
