1v1 Domination

Organization: Play 4v4 plus goalkeepers on a 35x25-yard pitch. One player acts as sweeper (S) while the others form 3 1v1s.

Coaching Points:

- Close dribbling/ball protection skills.

- Close 1v1 defending.

- Accurate passing/shooting.

Play Off Your Forward

Organization: Three teams of three on a 40x22-yard pitch divided into 5,20 and 15-yard zones.

Team 1: Two centre backs and a centre forward.

Team 2: Three midfielders.

Team 3: Three defenders.

Place two mannequins/poles 15 yards from a manned full-sized goal with a mini-goal on the 5-yard line.

Activity:

The centre backs start with the ball in the 5-yard zone. They look to pass to the centre forward. The midfielders run to create space then play a wall pass with the forward, dribble into the 15-yard zone and shoot. The defenders look to prevent the through ball, regain possession and score in the mini goal. If a midfielder scores, they attack again. If the defence scores, switch roles.

Coaching Points:

- Movement off the ball to create space.

- Controlled wall pass from centre forward to midfielder.

- Control, dribble and shot in two touches.
