Basic movement (10 mins)

Player C starts the move. Passes either to L or R.

If the pass is to L first, they dribble forward to the static defender (mannequin) and perform a turn.

L dribbles back, then passes back to C

C then passes to R who repeats.

This is continuous for a few minutes before players change to a different position.

Once each player has played at each position a few times and is confident of the game progress.

Dynamic Defending (10 mins)

Dynamic Defending and defensive shape - 3 v 3.

Encourage defending as a team and moving together across the pitch.

Same as previous actions, only now there is 'real' defenders.

Start with defenders shadowing players and following movement of the ball.

Progression

* Attackers can attack on goal. Defenders still shadowing. (Play must be switched at least once before attack can proceed)

After 2 or 3 attempts rotate attacking and defensive postions.

Once each player played in each attacking or defensive position a few times, attackers become defenders and vice-versa.

Coaching Points as before.

Stipulated Match (20 mins)

Stipulated Game - 7 v 5

Play starts and restarts (once the ball is dead) with the attacking team (purple) keeper.

Keeper can play to anyone they like but the ball must go through both wide areas during each attack for a goal to stand.

Defending team can tackle. If they gain possesion they attack the other end as normal (no stipulations).

Change defending and attacking players and positions as necessary.
