Positioning Game (25 mins)

Explanation:

- 5 v 5 + 4

- Coach serves balls into either team from the side of the grid to start play

- Either team in possession is trying to combine and play a pass to the attacking team in the other grid

- There is no pass limit before being able to play through the grid

- Defending team is working collectively to press the ball carrier & block passing lanes

- If the defending team wins the ball, the team that loses the ball no turns into the defenders

Team Task: Can we press collectively to win the ball back as quick as possible?

Player Tasks:

- Can you influence the direction of the passes from the opposition?

- If you are the player supporting the press, can you try and block the obvious passing lanes forward?

Cues:

- As an opposing player receives the ball, can you arc your pressing run to force them to one side?

- When in support of the pressing player, can you position yourself between the ball and the defender?

Game Training (25 mins)

Explanation:

- Play always starts from the goal keeper who will play to red

- Red are trying to score a goal by passing the ball into the mini goals

- Green are trying to press red (as shown above) to score in the goals within 10 seconds

Team Task: Can we win the ball close to the goal as possible and score?

Player Tasks:

- 7, 9 & 11, can you force the opposition to play to one side of the field?

- 10, can you block forward passes from the back into midfield?

- 6 & 8, can you support 7 & 11 to deny the forward pass into midfield?

Cues:

- 9, can you position your body to force the goal keeper to play left or right from the goal kick?

- 7 & 11, when the opposition 3 or 4 has the ball, can you position yourself to make it enticing for them to play the ball into 2 or 5?

- 10, as 9 presses the opposition, can you support him so the opposition cannot play forward into the midfield by blocking the passing lanes?

- 6 & 8, when 2 or 5 have the ball, can you position yourself to stop the goal being scored whilst affecting the decision making of your opposition 6 & 8?
