Variable Practice (20 mins)

The area is set up 40 x 30 yards with a half way line splitting into 2 x 2x30 sections.

 

The red team play length ways and have a Target Player at each end and the blues play width ways with a Target Player at each end. This creates a 5v4 for the reds per half and a 6v4 for the blues.

 

The aim of the game is to link 4 passes before a switch can be made. The reds switch to the opposite Target Player, as shown, and transition to that area as quickly as possible. The blues, on completion of their 4 passes move across areas. This can be a diagonal switch from Target to Target or a through ball with the support and transition of all players including Target Players.

 

Rotate Target Players and also direction of play.

 

To progress on receiving the ball a Target Player can drive in an be replaced. Both teams will be set up as a Diamond 4 in midfield. Blues are replicating playing forward to #9 and back to #5. Reds are replicating switching from #2 to #3.

EXPLANATION

* 7 V 4.

* LOCATION IS IN THE CENTRE OF THE FIELD AS THIS IS WHERE OUR FOOTBALL PROBLEM IS TAKING PLACE.

* PLAY STARTS WITH RED GOALKEEPER WHO PASSES TO #3 OR #4 IN ZONE A WHO MUST BOTH TOUCH THE BALL BEFORE BEFORE THEY CAN PLAY IT TO RED #6, #8 OR #10 IN

ZONE B.

* WHEN IN ZONE B, RED #6, #8 AND #10 MUST KEEP CONTROLLED POSSESSION AND LOOK TO BOUNCE WITH RED #9 IN ORDER TO SCORE IN ONE OF THE 2 MINI GOALS.

* IF THE BLUE TEAM WINS THE BALL THEY MUST KEEP POSSESSION AND LOOK TO PLAY THEIR #9.

* AN OVERLOAD FROM ZONE B TO ZONE A IS ALLOWED AND A 10 SECOND LIMIT IS GIVEN TO SCORE.

* ALL RESTARTS WITH RED GOALKEEPER.

TEAM TASK

* TO KEEP POSSESSION IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD WITH OUR CENTRAL PLAYERS.

PLAYER TASKS

* #6, #8 AND #10 HAVE TO TRY AND RECEIVE THE BALL IN A FORWARD FACING POSITION.

* #6, #8 AND #10 MUST BE MOBILE AND MOVE INTO POSITIONS TO CREATE ANGLES AND SPACE IN ORDER TO RECEIVE THE BALL FROM #3 OR #4.

* #8 AND #10 SHOULD BE LOOKING TO PLAY #9 AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE AND MOVE INTO SPACE TO RECEIVE A RETURN BALL TO SCORE.

COACHES CUES

* #6 YOUR CUE TO RECEIVE THE BALL IS WHEN #3 OR #4 LIFTS THEIR HEAD AND LOOKS TO PASS.

* #8 AND #10 YOUR CUE TO GO FORWARD IS WHEN THE BALL IS PLAYED TO YOU IN A FORWARD POSITION (NOT TO FEET OR WHEN YOUR BACK IS TO GOALS).

 

ADD #2 AND #5 RED TEAM AND #7 AND #11 BLUE TEAM AND REMOVE CONES TO MAKE FULL WIDTH CONCENTRATING ON MIDFIELD RECEIVING THE BALL FACING FORWARD AND THEIR MOVEMENT OFF THE BALL.
