Passing warm Up (20 mins)

Passing and turning. Players can work about 6-8 players in each grid. One player starts on cone two on corners and one on corner in front of cone. Player starts with ball and plays into to player who is side on to receive the ball. This player can choose to go to right or left side and plays pass to next player who dribbles back down to line. This repeats with players changing directions that they choose to play pass. Progression would be players show on angle near, and open up on half turn to let ball roll past them to then play a one touch pass. Another progression would be player shows away and back chooses a style of turn and then plays out to either corner or dribbles to either corner.

Plays look to have proper body positioning to receive, weight off pass must be on, playing in front of player not behind, playing ball to back foot when side on to turn, communicating to turn, checking shooulder, eye contact and communication, timing of checking and showing, heads up play to find player. c

Target Game

Players are in 25 x 30 yard area, 2 targets opposite for one team, two targets opposite sides for other team. Players look to find targets from turning with ball to dribble and pass, to making penetrating passes, to receiving beyond opposition etc. Players exit the area and take place of target player when ball is played to target. Points are kept when players play to one target and then to the next without losing possession.

Coaching points, body positioning, awareness to see gaps and space in behind defenders, receiving on half turn and seeing target players, looking to bypass opposition with variety of passing techniques, creating space for teammates to play into targets and keep possession.

Possession to play to Higher Platforms

30 x 20 yard area.

Split into 10 yard zones. Two neutral target players. Players are playing within zones, looking to play forward through zones to target on other side. Players cannot play ball back and look to use under 3 passes with partner before progressing ball forward. Ball can be played back to target player in own zone only 1 during a passing sequence. Players are looking to find higher platforms with teammates. Players off the ball are looking to create space in behind defending lines and to buy time for teammates. Look to correct players when "sitting" on lines because of decereased space. Encourage clever play to bypass zones directly to ttarget. Accuracy of passing, understanding of risks, playing smart. Support angles and body positioning also important. Players want to receive on half turn to already be able to move forward as opposed to back.

Progression would be, allow play back but must skip zone to play forward next if playing back.

Zone Game

Zone game: players look to play into zones and join attack. Players who pass ball in or another player from zone can join to support forward play. Look to once again emphasize near and far support and not sitting on lines when waiting to receive passes. Encourage players to look to receive beyond lines of defenders and to help with being available to receive in positions that are penetrating with possesion. Look to find windows of space in behind defenders that allow teammates to receive ball and turn. Last 5-10 take away zones, free play.
