Technical Practice (20 mins)

Passing and Receiving: Technical Practice

Organisation

The numbers indicate the player's starting positions (both 2&3) marked by opposing players. Players 2 and 3 move off their startng positions to receive the ball. Every player follows their pass to the next starting position.

Coaching Points

1. Accurate Passing (Technical), ball must go to the position of the player when receiving not the starting position. Weight of pass.

2. Receiving players, sharp movements, become hard to mark. (Physical)

3. Recognise triggers for movement to ensure speed of practice (Tactical)

4. Awareness. Where is the receiving player? 2 player should have his head up to receiving after looking over shoulder to player 3. This is the trigger for 3 to realise the ball is coming. (Cognitive)

Differentition + Progressions

Technical Changes: Player 2 can receive the ball in different ways. Eg. Turn on front foot, across the body using back foot, across the body using sole. Drag back with sole to face up the defender before playing. (Coerver)

Tactical Changes: Introduce GK at each end. instead of 3 playing to 1, 3 shoots into the hands of GK to perform various catches. GK then rolls out to 1, who drops to receive before playing again.
