Warm-Up: Technical Box (5 mins)

Description

25x30. All players have a ball. Push them to get as many touches as possible. I usually have them work at a high intensity for 90 seconds and then rest for 30 seconds. For example: How many touches can you get? I don't like this as it is open ended. I prefer to tell them, "Get 100 touches" in 90 seconds so that their is a clear goal. Having them take a touch and then a step is vital.

Progressions

Take ____ amount of touches, and then:

- Toe taps

- Foundations

- Turn and Explode

Coaching Points

Good contact with the ball

Knees bent a little / low center of gravity

Accelerate after turning

Use the weak foot

Activity 1: Johannes' Over The River (15 mins)

Description

Split the field into 3. The two outside thirds are slightly larger than the middle third. The aim is to make 3 passes and then switch the ball to the opposite box without the defenders in the middle (The River) blocking the pass. The team that loses possession switches with the defenders. The ball immediately starts with the third group who wasn't involved.

1. Let them make 3 passes and try to play the ball through the river to the other group.

2. Introduce width and Depth. Add a defender into the box to play a 3v1.

3. Introduce movement off the ball / options from the group waiting to receive after 3 passes

4. Penetration: When the ball is switched, the group can try to score in the goal. All defenders can leave the river in order to prevent this.

E.g. Green makes 3 passes, finds a Blue who then turns to try and shoot. All defenders drop into the box as a 3v3 to prevent a shot.

You can play more than 3 passes if you need to. You can dribble into space rather than standing still. Adjusting the speed of play is key.

Activity 2: 3v3 (w/ Wide Channels) (15 mins)

Description

25x30. There must be a player in each channel at all time. You can switch channels, but your teammate must also switch. Communication is key.

Let's look to re-inforce the tactical elements that we have worked on:

- Check in / out to create space and lose your defender

- Play at different heights to create passing angles

- 1st Priority = Dribble into space

- 2nd Priority = Pass forward

- 3rd Priority = Pass to the side

- 4th Priority = Pass back

Just because a back pass in the 4th priority, it doesn't mean we should exclude it. Keeping possession is the most important.

Progressions

- Play 4v4 with 2 Center Mids, make the middle channel wider.

- Secure the first pass: When a wide player wins the ball, they must look to make their first pass backwards to the center back (therefore away from danger) and slowly build from there.

Activity 3: 3v3 Flying Changes (Attacking Principles) (20 mins)

Description

In the same 25x30 field, we pick up from yesterday's 2v2 flying changes. Hopefully the attacking principles are now in place, players understand (and can execute) 1st and 2nd priorities.

1st Priority - Dribble into Space at speed / Draw a defender

2nd Priority - Pass forward to a teammate

3rd Priority - Pass sideways to a teammate

4th Priority - Pass backwards to a teammate.

The same game rules apply:

- If a goal is scored or the ball goes out of play in your half, you switch.

- Each player in Line A enters the field with a ball.

Key Points

Defensive Principles:

1st Defender - Pressure

2nd Defender - Cover

3rd Defender - Balance
