Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warm-Up
Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Warm-Up

Warm-Up (20 mins)

Organization:

-10-12 players

-Full quarter pitch with 4 squares of 7x7.

-Divide the players into 2 teams.

-16 cones, 5-6 bibs, 2 balls

**GKs with GK coach***

-To begin the session there must be either 1 or 2 players from each team in each of the 4 squares.

-The aim is to pass from square to square around the pitch. 1 team must play clockwise, the other anti-clockwise. Once a player has played his pass he must follow that pass. Players must receive the pass inside the square. Use a maximum of 2 touches if possible.

Progression/Variations:

-Start with players dribbling/using moves from box to box.

-Allow players to play with a bit more freedom. In other words they can come out of the square to receive and can play little combinations (one-twos) with teammates.

Skill Development:

-Weight of pass, passing accuracy, decision-making, communication.

Coaching Points

-Spatial Awareness, there is a lot of interference so always check

-Play the pass in with pace

-Close control

Technical Practice (25 mins)

Organization:

-10-12 players

-Area of approx 25x25, and split into halves.

-2 players start the practice inside the area.

-2/3 players must be positioned on each corner. 1 ball in play.

-7 cones, 2/3 bibs, 1 ball

***Add GK back into the session (probably part way through)***

-The ball must travel from corner to corner around the pitch.

-Players must follow their pass or move to the next corner in the same direction as the play. In this case, anti-clockwise.

-Players on the outside have the option to play combinations with the 2 players on the inside. Players on the inside can choose to play a combination between each other before playing the ball to the waiting player in the corner.

Progressions:

-Add a defender to the pitch to play against the 2 players inside the area.

-Add another defender but also add an attacker making it a 3v2. Defenders are only allowed to play in their half of the pitch.

Coaching Points:

-Decision-making, when to play to the players in the middle

-Follow your pass

-Movement of the 2 players inside the area – can they support each other?

-Be aware of a teammates movement – can you make space?

-Encourage players inside the area to use the players on the outside.
