Individual Awareness

Organisation

Area 30 yards x 30 yards with a line across width 10 yards into practice area, with cones, goals, and target boxes.

12 players organised 4 v 2 in 10 yard end zone, plus 4 defenders in large area, 1 ball.

Players restricted to designated zones.

2 Target players 5 yards behind 4 v 2 zone, defending goals.

Practice starts with ball fed in to 4 v 2 zone by target players.

Objective: Retain possession in 4 v 2 in the end zone and look for opportunities to clip passes into the target boxes, at the other end.

Alternatively players can run with the ball out of the end zone to get through one of the coned gates to score.

Defenders must be aware of players looking to to break through gates or when to drop off to intercept or deflect lofted passes into target boxes.

If the defenders gain possession : then try to make long passes past the targets at the opposite end to score and practice continues.

If the pass is intercepted by the targets : play continues as they feed back into 4 v 2 game.

Function (25 mins)

Set Up with GK, 2 Centre Backs and 2 Deep lying midfielder against server, 3 midfielders and 1 attacker.

Server plays ball into midfielder - once played it can not go back to server - Reds aim to play forward trying to score in the main goal. Once whites win the ball, they play into wide target goals. - as ball is played can holding midfielder get pressure onto midfielder on ball - show out wide. - once presure is on ball, 2 defenders can play higher making sure their movement is together - if no presure on the ball to defenders to drop deeper limiting space in behind. - once attacking team crosses the halfway line 2 Fullbacks can start their recovery runs and server can become involved. - work on the Goalkeepers start position and their movement during the game - can they come if ball played through or retrreat Progressions: - server can become involved instasntly, so when ball is played in and midfielder is under pressure, they can play the ball back straight away and go out to opposite side, meaning no pressure on ball and defenders will have to drop. (same condition with fullbacks)
