Organization:

in an area12x8 yards place an attacker and defender centrally. Then place two targets at either end. one of the targets should have a ball.

Activity:

This activity should progress from low pressure to high pressure.

The attacker checks and receives the ball with only very slight pressure form the defender, should not win the ball. The attacker looks to turn and play across to the opposite target. This is repeated for about 1 minute. At this point switch the positions/roles of the players.

progressions:

Allow the defender to continue to apply more and different kinds of pressure until the defender is allowed to fully win the ball.

Play where if the defender wins the ball, the defender becomes the attacker and vice versa.

2. Body position side on to receive

Each pair of targets should be the same color. The digram shows yellow, green & black. Same color targets should be positioned at oppsite ends of the area

Activity:

The designated attacking player should receive a ball form one of the targets defended by one defender. The attacker then looks to get the ball to the opposite (same color) target for a point. If the attacker cannot they should play the ball back where it came from and get another ball from a different target and try to repeat for a point. If the defender wins the ball, they become the attacker.

Organization:

Place two goals facing the same direction about 20 yards apart. about 10-15 yards from the goals place a defender and an attacker. Place a second attacker10 yards in front of the first attacker. The first attacker should play with their back to goal. There should be a GK in each goal. There is only 1 ball required ith a pool of balls as supply. If you have enough goals, counter goals can be set up for when defenders win the ball.

Activity:

The first attacker looks to play into the attacker who has their back to goal. The attacker with back to goal wnats to try and turn and beat the defdner and go to goal. If they cannot they should set back to the first attacker who will now play across to the other side where the same process will take place. Players can be rotated every 2 minutes or so.

Progression:

Allow the attacker with their back to goal to incorporate the second attacker to go to goal. If the second attacker decides to join the attack a second defender will support the first defender. The second attacker can choose not to attack and switch the field instead.

Coaching Points:

Incorporate all previously mentioed coahcing points
