Description

Skill – Changing the point of attack- 20 minutes.

Drill Description and key Information

Area layout.

2 Large End Zones- 15 x 15.

Free Central Receiving Zone – 15 x 5.

4 target zones 5 x5.

Detail

(These areas could be changed dependant on age and ability) .

Both team play from end to end

Aim play out into the ‘Free Zone’ with player dropping deep ( unchallenged and at the right time, from there the ball would be set and the aim is to play long to one of the target players. When playing out from the back they can use the target players to gain a 4v2 advantage. If the ball is transferred successfully then the same team would regain possession and would play back in the opposite direction.

The target players would change every 3 minutes to ensure everyone gets opportunities in all areas.

No restrictions will be placed on the drill due to this being a new exercise but 2 touch would be good to ensure that we get the quality( tempo).

Key Points.

•Timing of the player to drop deep.

•Quality ( timing) of movement to support the set- need to loose man to ensure can deliver to target men.

•Decision of the technique to deliver to target men- (Based around needed to loft or driven).

•Looking at diagonal balls.

Phase of play- switching the point of attack after set off the strikers

Detail

Drill description and Key information

This diagram is not the true area size .

this was the best way of representing. (Further more if we had the facilities then this is what would happen).

The two central areas are 20 wide x 15 deep.

The 2 long wide areas were 15x 10 and the smaller 10 x10.

Exercise Aim.

Starting with the coach the ball would be played into the first middle zone. The midfielders would then have to play off the striker who would set the ball. From there the ball would have to go diagonal wide (changing the point of attack). The wide player would need to arrive in the zone at the right time and from there the ball would be delivered with players attacking 2nd 6 yard box. Once the ball was out of play at the goal end the ball would be dead and the coach would start the exercise again. Both teams are attacking and defending dependant on who the coach starts play with.

The strikers must come short and link the play but there is no receiving zone – I wanted to see if they could recognise the right moment which is vital in game situations. You could put a free zone in to enhance the productivity in getting the ball wide but in the long term the difficulty facing(strikers coming short), here is only game realistic and will hopefully speed the thought process up.

Could also make progressions- where midfielders could join in to attack the wide delivery but was looking how the session would develope and this could link into future sessions.

Key points

•Timing of front man to come short to receive (playing on the shoulder first of all).

•Movement to support the set- timing.

•Decision in technique to deliver wide.

•Quality of the delivery into the box.
