Warm Up / SAQ

Warm Up / SAQ

Organization: Set up siz total grids all 7x7. Three will be set up for touches in the ball and the others for SAQ. Four players in each grid. Two balls per team.

Activity:

The players opposite the three players will be passing and recieveing teo sperate balls from thier teammates. The pass will be made and in 1 or 2 touches the next pass needs to go to a teammate who does not have a ball. The player may not play to ball back to the player who just made the pass. Players will continue this pattern until 60 seconds has expired. From their each team will move forward towards the single player and complete the SAQ directly in front of them.

SAQ 1. - Two times through the ladder on each exercise. (forwards run,side run both ways, two feet in two feet out.

SAQ 2. - Two times through the hurdles on each exercise. (right foot only jump overs, left foot only jump overs, Side run two feet in each facing both directions)

SAQ 3. - First triangle - spring upwards to the left, slide across, backwards run back around starting pole, explode through the front two poles making your way to the next single pole. Section 2 - sprint to the single cone right in front of you then backpedal around the cone on your left, sprint forward to the next cone in front of you, get around the cone and backpedal to the cone behind and to your right. The pattern is completed after you explode out to the pole 10 yards in front of you. Section 3 - Zig zag in and out of the poles staying low and balanced finsihed with a quick explosive 5 yard run. Teams will move clockwise moving to a new SAQ location each time a new player is connecting the passes.

Coaching Points:

1. Try to play one or two touches max.

2. Always communicate and help your teammates.

3. Active feet because the space is tight.

4. SAQ - get through each rep balanced, under control, and focus on changing direction and exploding into a new space.

Organization: Gird size 15x15 with 6 obstructions in the middle to occupy the space (use what you can)

Activity:

Two teams are on the outsides of the grid with one team on the inside looking to combine in the tight space and play out to the other side. Make sure the ball is not stationary at your feet if you are on the outside. You are allowed to play across to your teammate who is on the same sideline/endline as you to keep the ball moving and allow time for the players in the middle to find the open space. Try to play two touch as much as possible keeping the ball moving, focusing on playing out of tight spaces not dribbiling out. Teams will run for 2 minute shifts in the middle then switch with one team on the outside.

Coaching Points:

1. Pass and move. Where are the open passing lanes in relations to the two balls.

2. Play quickly.

3. Have a idea of what you want to do with the ball before you recieve the pass.

4. Body position.

5. Be sure you are always communicating with your teammates and players on the outsides.

Organization: Grid size (square) - 20x20 Triangle grid size - 12x12x12. Three teams of four.

Activity:

One player from each team enters the inside of the triangle with the other three players on one end of the outside of the triangle. Each team will have their own ball making a total of three balls. The objective is to receive the ball in the middle grid and and play out to one of the other ends where the ball did not start from. Let each player on the team get a shift of 60 second in the middle trying to connect as many passes as possible. 

Progression #1

Activity: 

Same as above as for as equipment and space. Now whoever is in the middle is still trying to connect two of the three sides. But, as soon as the ball is played into the middle player inside the triangle he/she must leave the space and it should be filled by a teammate who is not involved in the play. Players are allowed to play the ball on the outside in order to keep the ball moving. 

Coaching Points: 

1. Always be on the move.

2. Have proper body shape when receiving the ball/passes.

3. Make sure your first touch preps you for the next pass. 

4. Always have your head up looking at the different options as the picture changes. 

5. Communicate with your teammates.

Technical / Tactical (Small Sided)

Technical / Tactical (small sided)Organization: 4v4+GK's. Field is split into three zones with the middle zone divided in half. Each zone will be 1v1 (make sure the space is tight but still big enough so the players can find success).Activity: Players are trying to successfully complete passes/touch three out of the four grids. Players may leave the grid they originally started out in as long as the space they are entering does not have one of your teammates in it. Once the ball in successfully  played into the forward only one additional player can join the final zone making a 2v1 situation going towards goal. Ball will always start with the GK's (at their feet or in their hands)Coaching Points: 1. Always be aware of what space needs to be filled to offer support to the player on the ball. 2. Be sure to remember to play out of tight spaces. Do not dribble when you don't have room in front of you to attack the defender. 3. Accurate passes. 4. If we cannot go forward always know you have a 2v1 in your defense zone if you include your GK.
