Increase movement (5 mins)

Central player needs to move, don't stand on the blue line but receive and pass with same foot (able to slip ball central in match if defender closed down wide pass)

Ball out of feet forces head to come up to find next pass, play to furthest foot

Add checking (5 mins)

Wide players begin to check - start at cone work away.

Timing of movement is critical - do not drop back in towards cone (simulates tucking in as ball moves in event possession lost) until ball is moving towards next player - stay wide to create 2 options

Switch roles after 5 passes

1-minute game (5 mins)

1-minute game:

> 1 point for each pass completed

> Players must take 2 touches

> Ball may not go through grid, must stay outside

> Can double-pass but next ball has to go in another direction

If players take anything other than 2 touches - go to 0 points

Ball enters grid, go to 0 points

Coaching Points:

1. Players move and play with head up

2. Receive across the body with furthest foot

3. Move when ball moves, provide 2 options

4. Do not tell players about blue edge of triangle - see if they can solve the problem

Conditioned Game

> Ball cannot be played until there are 2 options, forces movement at the right time

> Must teach angles of support - possession without support is meaningless

> Movement off the ball creates other spaces to exploit in matches

> Appoint team captains - teams must keep score, play multiple games, do not shout out score, captain whispers it to keep competitive aspect in game

> Set distances based on age / ability
