Team Learning Objectives

- Rotation to receive the ball in midfield areas

Session Organisation

- As shown, 1 team operates with 2 teams off resting

How to Play

- Ball starts from the GK and is played out to the centre backs. #5 and #6 must transfer the ball between one another before playing into midfield (trigger for rotational movement)

- Midfield four combine to play into #9 or #10 and join in for the ball to be laid off and then finished

- Next team enters the middle zone from the other end with the GK and back four transferring the ball around until ready to play in

Challenges

- TRY TO...

- Receive in a position in which you can see the passer and the goal upon receiving  (1/2 turn)

- Offer support both ahead of and behind the ball

- Rotate roles to get a player receiving the ball facing forwards

Progressions

- Vary rotational patterns

- Ball must be played through both FBs (who are on 3 touch)

- Strikers can finish from diagonal pass only

- CF link up play

- Remove mannequins. After attacking one team leaves 2 players to defend, eventually increasing numbers to create 4v4 in the middle

- Game becomes directional with both teams playing 2 strikers up against the 2 centre backs

*OPEN TO SSG
