Objective: Improve build up after a passback to keeper.......focus on triangularization, ball circulation, collective possession, attacking vertically with the ball in possession....also advance the ball vertically.

Equipment: Cones, balls, 2 colors, 17 players +GK if available

Organization: (2) teams of (1 = 7+GK, 1 = 7 +GK) players occupy positional lines. Defending team pinches and compacts field. Team with number superioty maintains possession and circulate switching point of attack and unbalancing defending team. If defending team wins the ball, they score by either passess or coutner.

- Can only switch on a turn.

- Allowed to advance after number of passes.

Coaching Points:

- Use of front/forward/far foot.

- Ready body posture, hips open to field, and support angle.

- Weight and angle of pass.

- Eyes up and looking over field.

- Occupying different lines.

- Playing on defenders blind spot.

- Orientation of first touch.

- Play how you face to find 3rd man.

- Play outside when def is in, and inside when defense is out (if both are open, find interior passes that break lines). - Skipping lines as a priority.

- Interchanging positionally *older players*

- Finding triangularization.

- Speed of play

- Manage the tempo (fast and slow)

- Pressing ((Defensively))

- Transition speeds.

Positional interaction:

- 6 moving in opposite to find ball from 4-5.

Defending as a team (20 mins)

Objective: Improving Defending Principles

Equipment: cones, pennies, balls, two goals

Organization: 3/4 of a field, full width, two goals

3 different ways to prevent them building up

1. our 10 steps high, our 9, 10 step to CB's

2. their 4 or 5 carries it, how we press them - the V - back to keeper then hold

3. let their fullbacks play -  9 splits CB's, our 7 to 11 step to their 2,3s

Key points: - sharpness and tune in the entire game....remain compact....energy when pressuring.....balance....pass players on....short distances between the defenders and mids...keeper of the line....give them the weak side...cover each other.... communicatio

Coaching Points: compactness to reduce space between lines ensure support - pressure on the ball to avoid long pass - move forward with back pass, bad trap, long switch - six second rule, press with bad touch, numbers around the ball,

Work Load:minimal - day before the game...
