Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 4v1 or 3v1 Keep Away
Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): 4v1 or 3v1 Keep Away

4v1 or 3v1 Keep Away (15 mins)

3v1 or 4v1 Keep Away Warm-up Ladder: Grid: 12 X 12 Grid.

Why? Perfect passing & receiving technique with pressure, movement off the ball and supporting angles.

Rules:

-3 minute games

-players count how many times they have gone in the middle. After two minutes the two players that have been in the middle most will move down a grid (unless they are in the last grid). And the two players who were in the least will move up a grid (unless they are in the top grid).

- Play 3 or 4 3 minute keep away games.

- If players complete more than 4 passes then they are in

Coaching Points: Offensive players must always ***receive ball across body with hips open to the field (when is the only time not to? if defender is on you, what can you do?) What should supporting players be doing? No one should ever be standing. Constant adjustments in their movements.

*** needs to be stressed every session, whenever we don't see it happening, we need to address it.

Competition:

How many successful passes can you complete in 30 seconds?

Coaching points: How should you receive the ball? Hips open and ball across your body. Players need to scan/peak before receiving the ball. How quickly can you receive and play?

Ball Mastery: (do this for 2 minutes at the start of this session)

1) player makes contact with inside of foot with ball and rolls ball under foot where the sole touches it all by moving forward. Stay with the one foot.

2) player does same thing but alternates with both feet.

6v3 progression (25 mins)

6v3 Progression

Set-up: Have three separate zones marked off with one defender (blue) in each zone versus 5 field players.

Rules:

The 6 offensive players have to score by successfully passing/dribbling the ball across each three zones and dribbling thru one of the two gate goals.

1) Play starts with both center backs running to yellow cone and then opening up to receive ball from keeper. Opposite center back needs to squeeze in once ball is played to other center back to protect central position.

1a) Can have centerbacks be forced to connect 4 passes before going forward, can use the keeper.

2) Add defender (blue) in defensive half (where two small goals are).

Coaching Points: Center back has one of three passing options 1) outside fwd who should be opening up down the line, 2) Center mid who should be showing inside. 3) Outside back dribbles or combines (wall-pass) out of pressure.

***Players need to be receiving the ball across their body
