Switch of Play (15 mins)

This is a UEFA B Licence drill looking at Introducing a Switch of Play and the benefits this has when in possession. It will help illustrate to the players the movements and types of passing required to move the ball from one side of the grid to the other.

Set-Up - 8 Blue 8 Red

2 End Zones within a 30x20 grid.

The teams will have a ball each to start of with. They will move the ball from one end zone ro another when there is an available player there to receive. The players within the middle of the grid will decide when to drop into the end zones and a switch of play can take place.

This will help them to develop the movements required to play these accurately.

Coaching Points - Movement from middle players to recognise when to drop out.

- player on the ball must relese the ball out quickly to start the process of the switch

- Another of the middle players must drop deep into a position to become the link between the 2 ends

- Accuracy and weight of pass is key so it is not cut out or intercepted.

Progression - Make it competitve with Blue vs Red 1 ball End Zone game. Each time they succesfully switch they score a point.

Action
