Eliminating the opponent with a wall pass (20 mins)

Organization:

5 Players minimum with the area being as large or small based on the age/ability of the players involved.

Starting Point:

Player A, plays OUT to Player B, who plays BACK to Player A.

Player A then plays a THROUGH pass to C, accelerates past Player D, to receive a wall pass and plays a 1-2 pass back to Player C and takes his/her position.

Player C then repeats the passing sequence the opposite direction by passing OUT to Player D, who passes BACK to Player C, who then plays THROUGH to the next Player in the line.

Action:

Once the players have learned the sequence and over come the learning curve, the goal is to play as many passes on their first touch.

Player B and D won't move in the sequence so don't forget about them. Change them up once in a while. I found using my strikers and center mids there to work on their ability to play wall passes through the middle of the pitch was quite effective but obvioussly anyone can go there and should go there.

Coaching Points:

Proper foot to pass with (pretend the defender is the cone)

Wall pass players check away and to, check shoulder, fix shape, receive half turn and lay a nice set pass

Once the player starts the sequence, they should take a step to the side to suck the defender in the direction to the get around the corner for the return pass

The long pass needs to be with the right foot since we're passing that way and to the right of the cone for the receiving player to avoid the defender (the cone)

The receiving player fo the logn pass should check away and to etc. as always and use their left foot to play the ball in for the overlapping run

The pass back from the overlapper needs to be to the near foot to help protect the ball from the defender.

Lots of details in this quick moving drill. Great to get the kids moving and have their details challenged.

3 out 1 in passing (20 mins)

3 out 1 in passing

A grid of 8 x 8 with 3 players outside the grid and 1 player inside.

Player 1 passes to the middle and gets the pass back.

While this is happening, player 2 passes to player 3

As the player receives the pass from the outside, they play a wall pass with the middle and works that wall pass around to the next side of the square.

Player in the middle has to constantly get their head on a swivvle and see the next pass coming.

Potential Progression

Only at higher levels but the coach can shout change and have the players change the direction of the passes to see if they can make the quick adjustments.

Coaching Points

Player on the middle must receive on the back foot

Details for passing (name, info, show with your hand where you want the pass, weight and direction of pass)

When the player is going to receive the pass from another on the outside, they should be checking away, checking to, chek shoulder, fix shape and receive on the half turn

Player 3 now passes to the middle and player 1 passes to player 2

They are all constantly moving around the grid and the player in the middle is always with his head on a swivvle being sure to up up to the new ball coming in to the grid.

3 Zone Game (20 mins)

3 Zone Game

Divide your group into 3 teams. Now put each group into different colors and give them a grid. The group in the middle grid is on defense. A ball is sent into one of the wide grids and defenders are sent from the middle grid into the grid with the ball. Make X number of passes and then send the ball to the opposite end grid without allowing the defense in your grid or remaining in the middle to touch the ball.

Depending on age, skill adjust the size of grid, number of defenders putting pressure, number of passes expected for success and number of touches each person can take.

King Louis (30 mins)

King Louis

2 teams in 2 18 yard box's attached. Play 5 vs 2 with the 5 having 2 touches max and the 2 having unlimitted. The 5 cannot cross into the other grid, nor can the 2. No goalie but players can go in the net and stop the shots without their hands.

Goal is to create scoring chances from the 18 with combination plays either with each other or going to their strikers to get set passes. They can of course look to play their strikers in for opportunities as well.

Coaching Points

spacing depth and width in the 18 to keep possession and set up lanes to shoot

speed of play

communication for set passes
