Organisation

Half of a 1/4 pitch

14 players 9 attackers 4 defenders 1 gk

Activity

The recovering defenders will act as feeders

1 of the feeders will pass the ball to one of the wide players

The wide player will lay the ball of for the 2nd wide player to play into the striker

Once the wide player has played into the striker they will join the game with a wide player from the other side creating a 3 v 2.

The aim of the game is for the defenders to win the ball and either player to one of the feeders or pass into 1 of the small sided goals.

Using depth and other defensive principles.

Coaching Points

Body position (side on - show attacker onto weak foot)

1 press and 1 cover (depth)

Be aggressive trying to win the ball

Communication - dont cross over pass the player on

Progression - Once 1 of the feeders plays into a wide player the other will become a recovering defender to make it become a 3 v 3.
