Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warm Up

Warm Up (15 mins)

2-Lines of players 30yds apart; 2 balls.

Player 1 from each line runs with the ball until they are level/past the cone marker, pass to front of other line and join the end.

1) NO Restrictions

2) Must perform a take-on move during run/w ball

3) After you pass the ball, get around cone marker and chase/defend the player you pass to. Try and catch up and tackle before the ball is passed again. Once ball is passed, join line you just came from

Coaching Points

1) 1st Touch: Does the 1st touch push the ball 6-8yds in front for player to accelerate onto?

2) Running Touches: Are they with the laces, 6-8yds ahead and straight?

3) Speed: Are players able to run with the ball at a similar speed as without the ball?

Activity One (15 mins)

40yd x 44yd area; 3-lines of players; lines A & C defenders & B attackers.

i) Player A passes to Player B and then chases/defends Player A.

ii) Player B looks to receive the ball and run with the ball through the flagged line BEFORE Player B can close/defend the ball.

iii) Once Player B is past the flagged line, Player C now comes out to defend the ball.

iv) Player B looks to take-on Player C 1v1 and get a shot on goal.

Players A & C switch lines, Player B returns to the attacking line. Rotate lines A/C & B every 5-min.

Coaching Points

1) Game Like: Is the defending / attacking game like? Speed, focus, technique & execution

2) Attacking Variation: Can you see the difference when the players are running with the ball (Part One) & Dribbling to beat a defender 1v1 goal (Part Two)?

3) Success Rate: Are there plenty of shots on goal? Yes; Why? NO; Why?

Activity Two (15 mins)

45yd x 50yd area; Play 5 v 5 + 2 to goals with channels out wide for +2 (floaters). Floaters have to stay in the channels and can play for both teams.

i) NO restrictions

ii) IF the ball goes wide to a floater, no defender can enter the channel to defend. This will allow the floater to run/w the ball and put a dangerous ball in front of goal.

iii) To score, you must use the floater

iv) IF you r/with the ball / take-on the last defender within the channels and score, it counts as double.

Coaching Points

1) Field Awareness: Are players playing with their heads up? How is decision making; when to dribble/when to pass/when to use the wide player?

2) Technical Comfort-ability: Are players comfortable & confident with the ball at their feet in areas where there are defenders?

3) Attacking Instinct: Are players aware of when a goal scoring opportunity could arise? Are they willing to get involved in creating/scoring those chances?
