    - 2 minute blocks, who can be in the middle the least number of times

    - 5 minute block, 5 lives each and you lose a life every time you end up in the middle - who can survive? When you get to zero you still carry but the ones at the end with lives left win the round.

    Learning Objectives

    Technical Technical
    To develop the technical ability of passing
    Technical Tactical
    To develop an understanding of different ways we can pass a ball to threaten the opposition
    Technical Physical
    Competition element makes the session more physically demanding
    Technical Psychological
    To develop decision making skills around passing, such as what is the best pass to make at a given time
    Technical Social
    Use of team meetings - requires social interaction

    Specific Practice - Getting the ball into False 9s (Amended from session 1) (25 mins)

    AMENDMENT FROM SESSION 1 - THE BLUE ATTACKING TEAM HAS 10 SECONDS TO SCORE FROM WHEN THE FALSE 9 RECEIVES THE BALL AND THE RED TEAM HAVE OPEN TIME TO SCORE WHEN THEY TURNOVER THE BALL. IF THE BLUE TEAM WIN THE BALL BACK THEY CONTINUE TRYING TO FIND THE FALSE 9.

     

     

    ORGANISATION:

     

    - 2 Team 9v9

    - Only the False 9s can go in red lines

    - 2 blocks of 5 minutes with blues attacking with a 2 minute break in between to discuss tactics to do better. Then the same for reds.

     

     

    KEY FACTORS:

     

    The main focus is on coaching the attacking teams goalkeeper, defenders and midfielders in successfully getting the ball into the False 9s feet

     

    - The Objective is to get the ball into the feet of the False 9s

    - Ball has to be played on the ground only up towards the False 9 Zone

    - When False 9 receives ball quickly set an attack to try and score

    - When blues lose the ball restart from blue attacking teams keeper

    - When red defending team wins the ball in the red teams defensive zone they have 10 seconds to score a goal

     

    Coaching points

     

    - Movement and positioning. Blue defenders and midfielders have to be getting in space to receive the ball. Make the pitch big.

     - Firm weighted passes to reach target

    - vary breaking lines & going around

    - False 9s moving and rotating picking up different positions all the time

    - All attacking team players to receive ball on back foot half turn and ensure checking over shoulder

     

    Then move into full game, take away the line and emphasise you want to see ball getting into false nines in that area and the ball being played on the ground.
