Warm up (20 minutes) (20 mins)

1.) Players pass in a basic pattern and as they rotate to a different cone, they do it with movements and stretches.

2.) A passes to B; B lays off the ball back to A and back pedals to create a passing lane; A passes to C; B applies immediate pressure on C; C receives the pass and attempts to dribble around B.

Focus: Passing and receiving while being pressured. Pressuring immediately the moment a ball is turned over.

Objective: Players will look to combine passes quickly and move off the ball to create space and offensive opportunities. Plus, each player is required to defensively shadow a player with the ball during the passing pattern.

Transition Possession (25 mins)

1.) Split the teams into two groups, and divide the possession grid in half.

2.) One side of the half is a 7v5. The team with numbers up possesses the ball. The defensive team tries to win the ball.

3.) When the defensive team wins the ball, they look to play their targets in the other grid. Once that is executed, they immediately run and help their two teammates maintain possession. The other team now sends over 5 defenders.

Objective- Possess the ball as effectively as possible, and when the ball is lost, transition quickly to defend and win that ball back.

Transiition 7v5 (25 mins)

1.) 4 backs and 2 holding mids pass and receive and shift according to the ball. The player collecting the 4th pass must dribble the ball at speed past the midfield line.

2.) While the defensive player dribbles to the midfield, the offense creates a 7v4 counter attack. Offensive team has 10 seconds to score a goal. If the offensive team cannot score in 10 seconds or fewer, the red targets come in and make it a 7v5.

3.) The defenders cover for the missing defender/ mid and adjust to the counter (tuck in and force offense to the outside) as they wait for the dribbling defender to return and help them.

4.) The defensive team scores by winning the ball and playing the red targets on the midfield line. For every 2 corner kicks the defensive team allows, it counts as a goal for the offense.

Objective- Offensive players will work intelligently and hard off the ball to move, create space and generate goal scoring opportunities in the offensive third. The defensive team will look to win the ball and play an outlet to get out of danger and keep the ball.
