Layoff for Though Ball (10 mins)

Organization: Pass-Follow Pass. After pass, player checks at an angle to support his pass, receives a layoff for a give-go around corner. 2 touch, then one touch. Go both directions. Use 6 or more players and add a second ball starting on the opposite corner. Can change grid size to vary passes and receiving.

Instructions: Use 1 ball for 5 players. Start 2 balls on opposite corners for 6 players.

Coaching Points: Quality of passes and touches. Ball should not stop moving, 1st touch (receiving) should set up your next touch (the pass). Quality change of pace after a pass. Move to recieve back foot, open to the area of play.

2v2+4 (15 mins)

Organization: Set up as shown in 12x12 grid. Player who passes into target, takes that players spot, while the recieving player dribbles quickly into grid and tries to get the ball to the othe target player either directly or through a combination with his team mate.

Instructions: Keep score and play 2-3 minute rounds. Should be played in a small area to demand quick play and decisions.

Coaching Points: Speed of play. Checking at correct angles. Movement before, during and after the play develops. Quick 1-2 combinations. Play ball to the correct foot. Open body to receive. Think, play, and move the ball quickly. Can enlarge the area if the players do not have success. However...larger area = slower, easier play. Make sure area of play demands improvement of players.

Notes: This activity is extremely high paced. I would recommend playing in round of 3-4 minutes, check scores, and review what worked best, and add in whatever technical/tactical information you want during the break. Keep breaks short and no longer than 90 seconds.

1-2s aren't the only way to combine, praise other options that the players come up with.

Keeping Possession or Starting Over (15 mins)

Organization: Play 4v4 with 4 nuetrals on the outside. Play 4 minute games.

Instructions: Keep ball. 5 passes in the middle = goal. Outside players can be used to retain possession, but if team uses outside player, then their pass count loses 2 passes. Keep score and rotate teams in middle.

Coaching Points: When to risk and when to keep possession. Team that keeps the ball is the only team that can score.

Progression: 2 teams of 6, with target players on opposite ends of grid. If player passes to outside player, he goes out and receiving player enters the play area and play continues.

8v8 Soccer (20 mins)

Organization: Play 8v8 with no restrictions to big goals.

Coaching Points: Coach the combinations and support runs (off ball movement) in the game. Players need to stay physically moving & mentally engaged (to read game) to decide when to make runs and time them for fluid team & ball movement in attack. Can you see the practiced pattern of play? Do the players come up with their own solutions?
