Warm-Up (10 mins)

Get the players to evenly get behind the 4 cones around the halfway line. Balls on the 2 inside cones.


Ball will start from player A or B. For the first one, player A will pass it to player B in the middle. Once player B has the ball, they will play a long pass into space for player C to run onto it. Player A and B will then run into the box to try to finish on the ball that player C just crossed. Once that has happened, it will switch sides and the middle players will be playing with player D.


Coaching Points:

- Proper passing/crossing mechanics

- Slow down body momentum before you cross the ball

- Putting in the right type of cross when they are in a certain location

Same pattern as the previous practice. Except it's a 4v2. Channel runners on both sides are in play once "A" or "B" play the first pass into there partner in the middle lane. Defenders enter immediately upon the first pass. If the defender wins the ball, they can pass or dribble the ball through the blue counter goals.

Expanded Small-Sided (35 mins)

Small sided game using the full half. Wide channels have been marked from the 18 yard box to the sidelines on both sides.


Kick-ins instead of throw-ins, corners are active, no offsides. Play starts from the keeper if a goal is scored.


1 point for a regular goal. 2 points if a team use the wide channel first then they score from a cross or a passage of play from the wide areas.


For the last 10 minutes, remove the rules with the wide channels and just let the players have fun.


Coaching Points:

- Slow down body momentum before you cross the ball

- Putting in the right type of cross when they are in a certain location
