Conditioned Game (30 mins)

Setup as shown and ask both teams to play a 2-3-1 formation. Orange team scores by dribbling into one of the two shaded areas, pink team scores by scoring in the goal.

3rds on the pitch are not to lock players in but aid positioning and help coaching key points as the session progresses. Put plenty of balls in the goal, if the ball goes out of play or the oranges score, the GK restarts play. Once all balls are used, switch the outfield players around.

Challenge players, particularly the goalie to play short and through the thirds if possible. If the pink team push forwards heavily can the orange identify this and play in behind them?

Part Practice (30 mins)

As previous screen, but now players are locked into their thirds.

GK can only play short into the defensive third, the defenders must then attempt to combine with the midfield to play forwards to the striker.

CP:

- Receive on the half turn.

- Play quickly, use minimal touches.

- Peel away from opposition to find space.

- Don't be afraid to play backwards if needed, use the GK.

Progressions:

- Move one of the pink midfielders to be an orange striker to allow for more success.

- Team in possession can move into the next third, but must recover once their team loses posession.

- Players from each third can move into the next third as play builds to create more realistic pressure.

Whole Practice (30 mins)

Play a normal game, put in a half way line for offside and put one of the pink players as a goalkeeper.

Can players use what they've leant and play out from the back where possible. If the opposition come forwards, capitalise on the space behind and go long.
