Give and Go Passing Drill (20 mins)

What is the goal of the drill?

The goal of the drill is to beat a pressuring defender with a give and go.

.

What do the players have to do?

Player A is starting with the ball. While Player B is stepping up to pressure player C is showing for the ball. Player A will pass the ball to player C and move into the square right away. Player C will wall pass the ball to Player A into the square, beating Player B (Defender) with the give and go. With the first touch player A will take a first touch forward and then pass the ball to player D. Player B takes over the starting position of Player A on the ourside. Player C has become the new defender, pressuring player D, while Player A is showing outside of the square for the give and go.

.

How do you create the correct situations?

- The assignment of the player who is defending is to pressure the player on the outside (starting positions A and D) when they have the ball. Initially the defender is just pressuring, but not stealing the ball.

.

What are the coaching remarks for player A?

- Receive the ball in front of you, get your head up right away

- When the defender is closing in, pass the ball to Player C while you still have an open channel. Pass the ball to the correct side of Player C, so this player is able to get the ball back to you

- After you pass you coach Player C to play the give and go. After your pass you have to run right away behind Player B into the square

- When you get the ball back from Player C, make sure you take a touch going forward.

- After you pass the ball to Player D, make a run so you are able to become an option for this player (you are becoming what player C was to you, see coaching remarks for player C from this point)

.

What are the coaching remarks for player C?

- Make sure you are not too close to player A. You want to force the defender to chose between blocking Player A's dribble or the pass to you.

- Be on the same line as Player B, so the defender cannot close down the give and go channel and pressure you at the same time.

- Be on your toes, you cannot be flat footed

- Call for the ball on your far foot, facing forward

- Make a 1 touch pass back to Player A, beating Player B with the give and go

- Coach Player A to "go forward" after you have passed the ball

- After you make the pass move up the field with Player A. After Player A passes the ball you become the defender.

.

Progressions more difficult

- Player B is allowed to pressure Player C after Player A made the pass

- Player B defends on the line between the 2 cones. The player can chose to block the dribble or block the pass. If the ball is behind Player B the play is over

- Player B is defending on the line. As soon as the ball is past the defender in the square Player B is allowed to move backwards and pressure the ball. The play is over when Player A or Player C make the pass to Player D.

.

Progressions easier

- Player B is not allowed to pressure Player A. Player B is just standing in front of Player A

5v2 to 3+1v2 (30 mins)

What is the goal of the drill?

The goal of the drill is to move the ball up the field, creating numbers with the attacking midfielder and using our numbers to find an open player in the attacking third.

.

What do the players have to do?

The players who play 5v2 want to keep possession and create an open passing channel to the forwards. We want to get the ball to the outside players, who have an easier pass up the field. After passing the ball up the field the attacking midfielder moves up into the attacking third to create numbers.

.

How do you create the correct situations?

- Tell the 2 defenders in the 5v2 they have to prevent any midfielders passing the ball to the forwards

.

What are the coaching remarks for the 5 attacking players in the 5v2?

- Keep the field wide

- Keep possession and try to find the 2 players on the outside

- The 2 outside players should always try to play forward. If the outside forward is open play the ball to this player and coach the attacking midfielder to support. If the defender is on the outside forward, try to find the center forward and coach the attacking midfielder to support. If you are not able to make that pass either use the center midfielders to switch the play to the other side.

.

What are the coaching remarks for the 3 attacking players in the 3+1v2?

- Position: Forward keep the field wide, center forward stay up in the middle of the field

- Try to be in an open channel

- Use the attacking midfielder who is creating numbers on the field

.

What are the coaching remarks for the attacking midfielder in the 3+1v2?

- Support as quick as possible

- If the outside forward gets the ball, support and see ifyou can send play the a give and go. If that is not possible look for the switch

- If the center forward get's the ball, support and switch the field to the open outside forward on the other side.

.

Progressions more difficult

- One of the defenders in the 5v2 is allowed to drop back in the attacking third to create a 3+1v2+1

- Add a defender to create a 3+1v3 in the scoring zone

- Add a defender to create 5v2 on midfield

.

Progressions easier

- Limit the 2 defenders in 5v2 on their marking before the ball is in the attacking area

- Play 5v1 on midfield
