Part (10 mins)

Split the Area into Two Halfs and then the Two Halfs into Two Halfs again. We end up with Four Areas. Half 1 is Highlighted.

4 Neutral Players on the Outsides - Two per area.

2 Attacking Players and 1 Defender Inside Box 1 to start.

Rules:

The Attacking Players and the Neutral Players keep possession until they have made 4 or more passes. Then they can switch the play into Box 2 to a Neutral Player and play continues in that area with the attackers and defender moving over. If Defender wins the ball, the Attacker that gave it away becomes the Defender and play continues.

Progression:

Have a Second Defender standing by. When attackers reach 4 passes the second defender can enter the box and help to win the ball back. Attackers must make a further 4 passes before the ball can be switched.

Time:

Play for 5 minutes.

Add Progression then play for a further 5 minutes.

Coaching Points:

-Can they move the ball quickly?

-Can they receive on their Back Foot?

-Can they Recognise when to play the switch and when to keep possession?

-Can the Quality of the Switch Pass be good?

Questions:

-What is the purpose of Switching Play?

-Why does the Switch Pass need to be Good Quality?

-When the progression is added and the Second Defender comes in, how does that reflect a game situation?
