Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 2v1 Opposed

2v1 Opposed (20 mins)

Organization: 6 players, 4+ attackers, 2+ defenders; 25x20 yard field (15x20 yard area, 10x20 yard area)

Instructions: One defender will start with the ball at their feet in between the two pugg goals. One attacker will start at opposide end of field with another attacker starting on either side of the field at the middle. The DEF will play a pass to Attacker A then quickly close the ball (DEF must enter and stay on 15x20 yd area) and at the same time Attacker B will enter the area to create a 2v1 game in the area. Attackers will look to beat the DEF by executing the WALL PASS or simply beating the defender with the ball. (If Attacker beats DEF with ball, then will look to finish with finesse from distance once entering 10x20 yd area. If Attackers execute WALL PASS, return pass from the WALL player must enter 10x20 yd area and scored w/ 1 touch). If DEF wins the ball, they will dribble out of area.

Coaching Points:

1. Take 1st touch 2-3 steps in front to create momentum and time to look up.

2. Place body behind ball.

3. Locate target ( head up)

4. Plant foot next to ball (Balance)

5. Make contact on the center of the ball

6. Follow through low & straight (end momentum 2 steps past shot)

Tactical

1. Recognize where space is (behind defender = wall pass) ( in front of defender dribble at him and make defender commit)

Function: Getting the player on the ball to take open space forward while drawing in the oncoming defender to commit to the ball; good for when CM is looking to combine with RM/LM and vise verse to get behind the line of DEF. During progression, CM should look to find CF w/ direct pass who then can return the wall pass to CM or even look for the run of RM/LM down the line. Players are giving the ability to make their own decisions while on the ball, when to attack, and when to keep possession

Conditioned Game (20 mins)

Organization: 9+ players, 3v3+ 1 Central Neautral & 2 Wide Neautrals; 50x30 yard field

Instructions: A game of 3v3+3 will be field in the middle part of the field. Instructions to this game are alike from last activity: Attackers will look to beat the defenders by executing the WALL PASS to get behind defense or simply beating the defender with the ball. (If Attacker beats DEF with ball, then will look to finish with finesse from distance once entering 10x20 yd area. If Attackers execute WALL PASS, return pass from the WALL player must enter 10x20 yd area and scored w/ 1 touch). The difference in this activity is that 1 defender may enter the final 1/3 to prevent a goal.

***1pt for every goal scored in pugg goal

***2pts for every successful wall pass around a defender

Coaching Points:

Technical:

1.Locate Target

2.

Tactical

1. Recognize where space is (behind defender = wall pass) ( in front of defender dribble at him and amke defender commit)

Progress: Players are now put into game situations where they must solve problems against an opposition. Patience as well as proper execute of the Wall Pass will be tested. I want to see the players use the wall pass, but if pass is not available are the players looking to change the point of attack and/or keep possession. The team's formation should be Diamond shaped.
