4 v 4 to 6 goals (15 mins)

4v4 to six goals using Back Four Training Belt (15 min):

SET UP: In a field 35 yards long by 50 yards wide (wider than longer), place three goals on each endline (central, left and right). Have 4 backs using training belt & play against 2 forwards and 2 midfielders. Coach can add in another player or two for each side as play continues. Use of extra players: the GK can play behind the goals that the 4 backs are defending to aid in communication. Add in 3 target players behind the goals that the 4 backs are attacking.

Coaching Points:

•Reinforce coaching points from activity #1

•There must be pressure on the ball! Cues: as ball is traveling, defensive shape (pressure, cover, balance & flatness) must take place!

•Central Backs need to organize the back four as a group defensively through communication - when to step, when to shift, when to drop, etc.

•Decide marking responsibilities and zonal coverage on and off the ball

•Transition...when they win the ball back, do they have a plan to go forward as quickly and efficiently as possible or can they keep possession until the opportunity to go forward is on!
