4 v 4+ 2 (20 mins)

Organization

-Create two areas 12 x 24 side by side..you can create a channel between them if you wish where coaches can serve balls..adjust size of grid to your player needs...

- 4 Red v 2 blue + 2 Blue 

-The aim of the game is for the 2 defenders(BLUE)  to win the ball and then transfer it to their teammates in the lower half of the grid. The Blue players then travel to support and 2 players from Red become defenders in the bottom half to create another 4 v 2

-5 passes for attackers = 1 point

-If defenders steal and transfer the ball to their teammates they receive 3 points..

-20 minutes

Coaching points:

-close down the space quickly & deny penertration

-try to dictate the play one way & make it predictable

- Stay CONNECTED: keep together as a unit & communicate to ensure you stay/work together and don't get split!

- ROLES: Pressure (1st Defender), support/Cover (2nd Defender)  and the interchange between the two! communication key..

- Control- Be patient & wait for right time to win ball...read cues to win the ball...exposed ball, weak pass, poor touch, ball in air

-steal, supply, support

4 v 2 + 4 (20 mins)

In the same area as the previous activity... create a 4 x 4 central area as shown.

-Reds have to play at least 5 passes in their area v 2 defenders (blue) and seek to supply the ball to a Yellow player. (Once RED has played 5 passes another Blue defender can join to support his teammate to create a 4 v 3..)

-If 5 passes are made and a yellow receives the ball the other yellows must then get into that box, meanwhile two  different blue players defend against the yellows.

-Blues will serve as defenders for 7 minutes.....thereafter rotate Red and thereafter Yellow for 7 minute intervals....

-attacking teams receive 1 point for 5 conseeutive passes and the defensive team receives 1 point for breaking up play and 3 point for disposssing and passing to their teammates.

 -total 21 minutes

7 v 4 + 3 (20 mins)

Organization:

-Divide your team in half...The above image represents 14 players.... Mark out an area approx 40 x 25 and play 7 v 4 + 3. The objective is for Red to make "x" amount of passes for a point. Blue must work together to win possession and seek to transfer the ball to their teammates awaiting in their half of the field. Red thereafter sends 4 players into Blues half with the attempt to win the ball..

-Adjust size of grid based on the quantity and quality of players you have..

Coaching Points:

as above +

-Compactness: shrink top to bottom and side side... Get together and stay connected...don't allow the opposition to play between you!

-Control/ restraint: defend with composure and as a unit...Look for opportune times to win the ball

-- SECURE: Upon winning  the ball  circulate possession away from pressure and supply ball to teammates and support.
