Passing Pattern - Depth (10 mins)

SETUP - Five cones marking a starting position and destination (2). Pass #2 should be 15y. 6 passes to 2 who's under pressure in front, pulls ball back, and passes to 4 who moves to support. 4 than plays back to 6 who moved off the ball.

 

OJBECTIVE - For players to offer support behind the ball, relieving pressure and controlling possession.

 

COACHING POINTS - When do we (especially 4 and 5) need to drop to offer support/what's the trigger? Why back and not just to the side? What's your role off the ball?

7v4+GK (30 mins)

SETUP - Full width (80y) x 60y, 7+GKv4. Yellows must stay in their zones, can not cross line going across pitch. Blue play to target ACMs in zone, 3pts if play goes through 6 to ACMs, 1pt if not. Yellow play to large goal for 3pts. Ball starts at GK minus throwins. PROGRESSION - All players may enter any zone as they see fit.

 

OBJECTIVE - To use support behind and build through 6.

 

COACHING POINTS - If going forward isn't an option, swing the ball back. If 3 or 2 have ball, 4 or 5 need to drop behind for support. Who else can offer support behind? If too much pressure, can you send a big ball back to GK to release pressure?
