Encourage creativity and deception in possession to unbalance defenders

Defenders must press the ball and support the pressing player

Organised in defence, who presses and who covers

GK can press the ball immediatley once defenders have won possession to gather on the ground

Running with the ball (30 mins)

Organisation:

The defending Blue team starts by playing a long pass out to one of the three attacking maroon players.

The game is then 3v2 in the attacking team's favour. However once the ball enters back Zone 1, 1 recovery defender can join the defending team making it 3v3.

If the defending team win the ball or the GK saves but retains the ball that team attacks either one of the smaller goals.

Coaching Points

The recovery defender can only join once the ball is back in Zone 1 therefore the starting position of the attacking team is important. If the attacking team receive the ball on the yellow line and immediately cross it, it is not at speed making it easier for the recovery defender to make it a 3 v 3 game.

If the attacking team cross the line at speed the chances of success by exploiting 3 v 2 is greater.

Forward runs should not be in straight lines. Look to get inbetween the defenders to exploit space, depth and numerical advantage.

Powerful & accurate finishing

Good tempo and quick transitions if they occur.
