Warm Up

Within this warm up, players will be in a 4 vs 2 situations. and there are two boxes, one is a play box and the other is a reflection box. Players will play and try to keep possession with a coloured bib in their hands if the defender (one of the two) win the ball the person that lost the ball will then swap bibs and enter the reflection area where they will be a ball and they will reflect on what they did wrong. 

They will work within the channel doing skills and tricks and when they go there and back they are back in the game so what was a 4vs 1 goes back to a 4 vs 2 where more pressure should be added. 

Progressions -

-  Look for the players in the reflection zone to be creative 

- Can we adapt and go to one touch 

- Look to see where space is

- Smaller Area

-  More/ less defenders/ attackers

Whole

Within the first whole allow players to organise themselves and take leadership within the games, look for them to choose their own positions and let them become comfortable with their teammates. Planning for 7 vs 7 and don't apply an overload within this whole.

Progressions

- Step in if seen and correct 

- Can we look to retain possessions and not score a goal

- When we lose possession can we regain it in under 6 seconds

- Looking at the size of the field how can we shift the ball effectively?

-  Once received the ball can we look to drive, shoot or pass?

Keeping Possesion

The area is set up with 4 boxes containing 3 cones and 1 flat marker each. Players will be expected to use these boxes and exit different sides of the area. Inside the area players will be passing the ball around trying to retain the possession of the ball on their teams. 5 vs 5 within the middle section. Teams will try to play to their own colour player in the box, each team should have two. 

Players will be shifting the ball to the players in the boxes where to start they will receive and look to play straight back, later on get players to receive and play through another side of the cone and look for the person that passed it in to full into the position in the box.

Progressions - 

- Dragging players away to create opportunities 

- Can we recycle the ball if we get rejected 

- Look  to switch and can our first touch be advance 

- Can we play on our first touch or second? 

- Keep a high tempo and quick football 

- Move it into two goalkeepers and have a shooting implement on the session

- Everyone must get a touch before it goes into the other box

Whole

Moving into this 2nd whole we are going to focus on retaining the ball and it is massively important that the keepers involved in this process and they become the extra defender. Cad the team of formation 1,2,2,1 look to spread the ball easily and can we allow that diamond shape we have in midfield to be effective.

 Progressions - 

- Look at players support 

- Can we play first time 

- Overcomplicating things

 - Look for that early run/pass

- Score, defend, build up play, attack (a system to follow)
