Players Lounge (5 mins)

Players Lounge is an area seperate from the rest of the session. This is a starting point used by the coach. The coach can use this area for introductions, explanations, demonstrations & an area to keep equipment.

There are various other uses for the Players Lounge. It can be used by the players to rest in between practices, somewhere to relax and have a drink before moving onto the next stage of the session. The Players Lounge is also used as a behavioural tool. A student can be sent to the Players Lounge if their behaviour is bad, thus excluding them from the practice.

Skills Zone (15 mins)

We start every session with a Skills Zone. It is a free space to learn and develop skills and techiniques. The Skills Zone allows the students to become familiar with football movements and essentials to help them play the game.

- 1 ball between 2

- Free Moving (pass to person without a ball)

- Change Football

- Toe Touches on an available ball

- Turn 1 (perform a turn then stop the ball dead)

- Skill 1 (perform skill then stop the ball dead)

Coaching Points

Always keep moving even when you do not have a ball

Keep your head up and eyes open

Change of Speed/ Change of Direction

Rondo (15 mins)

The next stage of the session is a Rondo. A Rondo is a ball possession exercise. It introduces the act of passing. It also introduces Defence vs Attack. It is very game realistic and can be easily transferred to a competitive match.

- 4 rondos

- 4 v 2 & one 5 v 2 (due to numbers)

Coaching Points

Keep the area small

Do not let the ball slow down

Give the defender a ball to dribble to give them extra dribbling practice

Pass with the inside of the foot

Make references to specific postions in football to make coaching points more realistic

Be ready to receive the ball

Tech Practice (15 mins)

Technical Practice -

2 v 2 in small areas. One of the areas I have introduced a "Magic Man" (due to numbers). This player will play with the team in possession of the ball.

The object of this practice is too dribble across the opponents goal line. It has continued to look at Attack vs Defence. It combines the focus of dribbling with the football and introducing turns and skills learned in the Skills Zone & passing as a team and moving without the ball into free space.

Small Sided Game (10 mins)

The final part of todays session is a Small Sided Game. I have set up 2 small 6 v 6 & one of the pitches I have continued to use a "Magic Man" (due to numbers). It is very important that the session end with a Small Sided Game. This allows the players to put their new skills into practice.

As a coach I will limit the amount of teaching I do during this time. I want the students to enjoy the Match and develop an understanding for football on their own. It gives me an oppoortunity to evaluate the students and see if they are capable of transferring the skills from the practices into a Match. This will ultimately help develop my next session.

Coaching Points

- Perform skills just shown within a competitive environment

- Have fun

- Give the players freedom to express themselves
