Unopposed Combination Play AJ

Start the players about 10 yards outside the 18 yard box, players get into pairs or three's depending on numbers, 1 ball between each group, tall cones/corner flags/pole are the 'defenders'.

The players need to combine and shoot at the goal, they have 7 seconds to get the ball into the back of the net and they cannot shoot outside the penalty area, they have to make two passes before they can shoot.

Can the players be creative and show you, the coach, different attacking combinations?

Depending on the ability of players you can teach them different runs. For younger players, simple ones are: the 1:2, overlap and under lap and then for the more technical players you can bring in curved runs, diagonal runs and even get them to perform a skill past a 'defender'.

You can adapt the session by increasing/reducing the time, taking out 'defenders', adding 'defenders, bringing in a goalkeeper, increasing the size of the groups.
