Rotate counter clockwise. Go 2-4 minutes and switch directions. Players follow their pass.

Coaching Points: Light on feet and ready to arrange for next pass. Step away from mannequin like they are defenders and execute the half touch to set up next pass. Time movements so plays connect seamlessly. Don't be too early or too late. Deliver passes on the ground, in the window, with correct pace to set up next player. Last dribble movement should be explosive.

8v8+1 (30 mins)

Organization:

80 x 50 with retention lines 23 yards from each goal - sizes can be adpated based on numbers or age group.

8v8+1 set up in a 1-3-2-3

Games are 7 or 8 mins long and should be high intensity - 2mins rest/discussion

Normal re-start rules apply - throw ins, corners, goal kicks etc.

Instructions:

When the goalkeeper has possession the attacking team must retreat outside the retention line.

The team building out must recieve the first pass under the retention line.

The defending group must press the first pass.

Coaching Points:

Forward Defending - getting connected before closing

Two forwards run at the ball to rush the player in possession - good angle and speed to force play into agreed areas

The team slides over to one side of the field giving up the weak side

The third forward has to take awy both passes in front of the HM and be ready to close the GK

Fore checking - CM's and FB's must be ready to step in and intercept passes

Back line shifts over to allow one player to step higher - defenders must be comfortable defending 1v1 if the attacking team plays long.

Throw ins - team shifts over to cut the field in half and create numerical advantage on that side of the field - fore checking again should be coached to ensure players are aggressively looking to intercept the ball
