Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 3 team warmup

3 team warmup (15 mins)

Intervals:

2 min work + 1 min dynamic stretching x 4 reps = 12 min

Setup:

3 teams of 5

40x40 grid

1 ball per team

Activity:

Outside team: Work outside the grid to pass ball around and through grid

Inside teams: Work inside the grid and move the ball around

Coaching Points:

~ Spacing (maximize spaces between for longer passes)

~ Combinations (give & go, overlap, 3rd man run, dummy, in-set-through)

5v5v5 (20 mins)

Intervals:

4 min work + 1 min rest x 3 reps = 15 min

Setup:

3 teams of 5

40x40 grid

Activity:

2 teams work inside the grid, while 3rd team actively rests as bumpers on outside.

Team in possession scores by making 5 passes inside the grid. They can use the outside bumpers to maintain possession but those passes don't count towards the 5.

Coaching Points:

~ Spacing: maximize spacing to create more time on ball

~ Awareness: check shoulders - "Good players look" (don't watch the ball)

~ Communication: Give advice ("man on", who to pass to next, etc.)

SSG (20 mins)

Intervals:

3 min work + 1 min rest x 6 reps = 24 min

Setup:

2 games going on at same time (each works on half of field)

2 teams of 4

30x30 grid with end zones

Activity:

Team in possession scores by dribbling/passing ball through endzone (if too easy, require them to stop ball in endzone).

Team out of possession MUST send one player to guard the endzone, thus making it 4v3 in midfield.

Coaching Points:

~ Possess vs. Penetrate --> identify cues (overloads, space)

~ Passing and moving to create proper spacing and passing angles

~ Interchanging positions (but considering the counter-attack)
