Passing / Receiving (25 mins)

Passing and receiving technique fine tuning. Player in the middle is working, 3 players on outside, 2 with a ball. Central player checks away from cone to receive from a ball player and plays out to player without ball

CP: Awareness of where player without ball is before reception, which side of the cone to receive on in order to pass to that player, which type of reception to use to set up pass to that player.

- Shoulder check on EVERY reception, outside and inside players.

- Pace of pass should test receiver's first touch

- Use reception to facilitate next pass, not just to control the ball.

Initial progression: Back foot reception, open up. play pass behind cone.

2nd progression: Front foot reception, keep cone at your back, take touch away from cone, play pass across the front of it.

3rd progression: Freestyle. Get creative, front or back foot, experiment with reception styles.

Posession under pressure (25 mins)

3v1 or 3v2. Passing team attempts to complete 5 passes in one square before transitioning to another.

- Adjustments off the ball must happen as the ball moves to allow for quicker decision making by the receiver

- Communication is key, visual as well as verbal

- Reception away from pressure to facilitate next pass

- Constant recycling of movement, 3 second rule - if you don't get the ball in 3 seconds recycle movement to another space
