Activity 1: Johannes' Over The River (15 mins)

Description

Split the field into 3. The two outside thirds are slightly larger than the middle third. The aim is to make 3 passes and then switch the ball to the opposite box without the defenders in the middle (The River) blocking the pass. The team that loses possession switches with the defenders. The ball immediately starts with the third group who wasn't involved.

1. Let them make 3 passes and try to play the ball through the river to the other group.

2. Introduce width and Depth. Add a defender into the box to play a 3v1.

3. Introduce movement off the ball / options from the group waiting to receive after 3 passes

4. Penetration: When the ball is switched, the group can try to score in the goal. All defenders can leave the river in order to prevent this.

E.g. Green makes 3 passes, finds a Blue who then turns to try and shoot. All defenders drop into the box as a 3v3 to prevent a shot.

You can play more than 3 passes if you need to. You can dribble into space rather than standing still. Adjusting the speed of play is key.

Activity 2: 6v2 Through Gates (15 mins)

30x30 Grid. At the mid point of each side make a 3 yard cone gate (Red). 4 attackers stay big and provide width and depth. 2 attackers occupy the middle space. 2 defenders attempy to prevent goals by working together and staying compact.

The aim is to dribble through a gate and pass to a teammate. If the defenders are covering the gates really well, you can award a point for a number of consecutive passes (maybe 5 passes).

If a defender wins the ball, they can score a point by simply passing to the other defender.

Switch roles every 2 minutes.

Key Points

Supporting movements. Check in and check out.

Don't attack a gate if the defender is blocking it.

Quality passes with the inside of the foot.

Activity 3: 4v4+4

Description

30x40. 3 teams of 4. Same technical aspects as previous drill just larger.

Neutrals must play at different heights in the middle. If one plays deep and left, the other is high and right so that we can have a passing angle.
