U12 + SAQ Practice (25 mins)

Organisation

Players at starting point A go through the ladder and around the defender to show for player at starting point B.

Player B plays to player A to receive and play to coach.

Player A then exits area to the left around the cone and then sprints to group B.

Once the pass is made B goes over the hurdles, through the poles and sprint to group B.

As coach receives from player A a passing triangle is completed with the next player B ready to play to the incoming new player A.

Practice should be continuous.

Coaching Points

Speed + Control. Technical ability when going through obstacles.

Good first touch to receive and good weight of pass.

Change of speed.

Acceleration - body position low to high. low gives low centre of gravity < agility.

Differentiation + Progression

SAQ Ladders: 1 foot in each, 2 feet in each, two in two out, high knees.

Hurdles: 1 foot between each, 2 footed jumps, jumping jacks to squats.

Slalom Poles: forwards, backwards (look over shoulder - awareness)

U12 - U13 Technical Practice: Passing & Receiving (20 mins)

Passing and Receiving: Technical Practice

Organisation

The numbers indicate the player's starting positions (both 2&3) marked by opposing players. Players 2 and 3 move off their startng positions to receive the ball. Every player follows their pass to the next starting position.

Coaching Points

1. Accurate Passing (Technical), ball must go to the position of the player when receiving not the starting position. Weight of pass.

2. Receiving players, sharp movements, become hard to mark. (Physical)

3. Recognise triggers for movement to ensure speed of practice (Tactical)

4. Awareness. Where is the receiving player? 2 player should have his head up to receiving after looking over shoulder to player 3. This is the trigger for 3 to realise the ball is coming. (Cognitive)

Differentition + Progressions

Technical Changes: Player 2 can receive the ball in different ways. Eg. Turn on front foot, across the body using back foot, across the body using sole. Drag back with sole to face up the defender before playing. (Coerver)

Tactical Changes: Introduce GK at each end. instead of 3 playing to 1, 3 shoots into the hands of GK to perform various catches. GK then rolls out to 1, who drops to receive before playing again.

U12 - U13 SSG: Ball Retention (30 mins)

Organisation

5v5 field split into 4 quarters 25m x 25m each.

Possession Game (15 mins)

Both teams look to keep possession across the 4 1/4s. The constraint is players must dribble across all dividing lines from one 1/4 to another.

Coaching Points

Players must use weight and accuracy of pass to maintain possession of the ball from one player to another.

Communication both verbal and non verbal must be good. Encourage players to play to where the player should be rather to where the receiving player is at the time of communication. (Creating Space)

Players are encouraged to support receiving players for one touch possession. If ball is controlled players then look to move away from player in possession to offer width, space and time.

Differentiation

Players cannot dribble across dividing lines from one 1/4 to another instead the must pass then look to support.

Progression

SSG Goal Game (15 mins)

Using both constraints from the possession game once the ball has been controlled in each 1/4 that team can then look to score in any goal.

Differentiation + Progression

Limit the amount of goals teams can choose to score in.

Teams must build an attack across the middle dividing line to score.

Coachcan identify which goal can be scored in therefore forcing decision making in teams both in attack and shape in defence.
