Nuno Rosa Running with the ball-possession Technique Practice (15 mins)

Technique Session:

12 players involved, 4 footballs with an area relevant to age and skill levels,

Split into 2 sections not less than 30meters squared.

4 players in the central area with RED bib and 8 players on the outside with BLUE bib.

The objective is for the players in Blue to run their ball across the area, crossing as many lines as possible. As they are running across the area they have the option of using the central players to wall pass and link play.

Runs can be of any distance and players rotate roles so all get a chance to run with the ball.

Key Points:

•Look for players to identify space, even before the ball arrives at their feet.

•Good initial touch, ball under control and try to get the players to move at speed.

•Smooth movement with the ball is important. Players should practice take-overs, one-twos using the inside and outside of both feet for running and passing.

Progression:

•Start by allowing the players to run any distance

•Ask players to use different touches with the ball

•Ask players to change direction when they make the pass to the inside player

•Restrict touches

•Restrict time to reach the other outside player

Change players around so everyone can have a go

Nuno Rosa Running with the ball-possession Skill Practice (20 mins)

Skill practice

Using the same areas as the technical practice, but now its 8v4 around the area, with 4 goals.

BLUE team starting in possession.

The objective is for the 8 attackers BLUE to run the ball across as many lines as possible in a given time.

In turn the defenders RED have to try and steal the ball and SEE progression for challenge (should they be successful they should try and score in any of the 4 goals surrounding the area).

Key Points:

•Players in BLUE must move about and remain in a particular area – they should look to find space and then use it.

•Defenders should be encouraged to win the ball to put real pressure on the attacking side.

•Attacking players must work on their control and movement even though they outnumber the opposition.

•Recognise space/ opportunity/ defenders

•Adjust body to receive

•First touch

•Travel quickly/effectively

•Head up where possible

•Leading foot

•Execute outcome: pass, shot, dribble

Progression:

•Play with 2 balls or 3 working at the same time.

•How long can the BLUE team keep possession?

•Change the overload to 7v5

•Change overload to 6v6

•Allow both teams to score

Change players around so everyone can have a go

Nuno Rosa Running with the ball-possession Small Sided Game (25 mins)

Small Sided Game Session

12 players, 4 vs 4 in the central area with 2 players in GREEN on the outside area, all play to support the team in possession.

The team in possession needs to create space to try and lose markers, players not in possession looking to create space for themselves.

Key Points:

• Players should learn when to run with the ball and when to pass bringing in earlier techniques from previous sessions.

• Players should also recognise when to support and when to run with the ball – once again good control is vital.

• All players should be aware of protecting defensive space when a colleague breaks out with the ball.

• Recognise space/ opportunity/ defenders

• Adjust body to receive

• First touch

• Travel quickly/effectively

• Head up where possible

• Leading foot

• Execute outcome: pass, shot, dribble

Progression: None
