30x30 yard grid

3 pinnies

2 balls (extras on outside of grid)

Instructions:

3 Players start off as defenders holding the a pinnie each in there hand.

Defenders must look to simply touch a ball or force a ball out of play via a bad pass/touch from an attacker, if they do this the attacker who lost possession takes the pinnie and becomes a defender and the previous defender becomes an attacker.

Attackers must help each other to keep possession of both soccer balls.

Semi-Opposed

Organization:

Players in pairs

Activities set up as shown in diagram

Instructions:

Activity starts with pass from a player from what will be the defending pair.

When player from attacking pair receives ball, the player who played the pass applies semi-pressure on attacker.

Attacker dribbles at semi-opposed defender before playing pass to partner who has made a supporing run. As soon as that pass is made the 2nd defender applies semi-pressure to the attacker now in possession of the ball. And the same happens with player in possession after the 2nd pass dribbling over the end line (who then go to back of the defenders end line rotation).

Once they cross the end line, then pair who just defended go to the attacking end line and wait to receive pass from what will be the new defending pair, and the rotation restarts.

Coaching Points:

Use of body to disguise which way you are passing

Use of different surfaces to disguise where you are going to pass

Awareness of where want to play pass before make it

Technique of different deceptions

Attackers try to score in either goal.

1st defender can go anywhere in section, 2nd defender can only stay in zone behind markers (unless defenders have possession of ball).

If defenders win ball they can counter attack 2v2 (2nd defender can now leave zone).

Play is over when a goal is scored or ball goes out.

Conditioned Game

Organization:

2 teams of 6v6

4v4 in playing field, 2 target players per team on opposite ends of square/grid.

Instructions:

To score a team must play a pass into one of their target players, if this happens they score a point, and the target player brings the ball back into play with the player who passed them the ball taking their place as the target player.

Target players can move anywhere up and down their line but cannot step into the feild or change end lines.

That team must then try and score using the opposite target player (they can pass back to the other target player but it does not count as a point and players do not change roles, the team must try to transition and score using the opposite target player).

If possession is lost, then regained, the team can once again score using any target player.

First team to X amount of points = winner.

Coaching Points:

Use of body to disguise which way you are passing

Use of different surfaces to disguise where you are going to pass

Awareness of where want to play pass before make it

Technique of different deceptions

Can you fake a pass into a team mate in middle of field to open up passing lane to target team mate to score?
