Description

RETREAT LINE  U-9

Options for Goalkeepers – 7v7. How the retreat line is implemented. When the goalkeeper has the ball at a goal kick or after making a save the opposing team members would retreat to the predetermined area of the field. The predetermined areas are as follows:  7v7 – 1/3 third of pitch. It is recommended the goalkeeper does not drop kick the ball With the opposition retreating to the correct part of the field the goalkeeper can now successfully throw or pass the ball to a team mate. Once the player receiving the ball from the

goalkeeper receives the ball, the ball is in play and the opposition players can pressure and attempt to win the ball. If the goalkeeper chooses not to wait for the opposing players to retreat and throws or passes the ball down the field, the ball is instantly in play and does not require a player from the goalkeeper’s team to touch the ball first.

All opponents must be behind the retreat line and cannot cross the retreat line until the ball:

 Is touched by a player of the team taking the goal kick OR,

 Leaves the field of play OR,

 Goes over the retreat line. (If the goalkeeper chooses to play the ball across the retreat line prior to the opposition crossing the retreat line)

Warm-Up - Bulldog (10 mins)

Set Up: All the players are lined up at one end of the area, with one defender to start.

Organisation: Players attempt to run to opposite side of grid without being tagged. If they get tagged, they join the tagger in the middle.

Coaching Points: Head up, look for space, quick changes of direction/speed

Progressions: Have to run backwards over end line, add a ball (if you have the ball, you can't be tagged, only have it 3 seconds then pass it on). You can also do this exercise with each player having a ball and the defender has to kick the ball out.

Set up: 20x20 area, one big goal, two smaller goals on line where defenders are. Split the group evenly so there are attackers and defenders and one goalkeeper.

Organisation: Play starts with the defender passing the ball to the attacker who is then looking to score on the goal. Defender can try to win the ball, if they do, they try to score by dribbling through one of the gates. Rotate positions.

Coaching points: Good first touch out of feet, see the defender, change of speed and direction to take the defender on, and creativity

Small Sided Game & Team Formations (45 mins)

Games are played 7 vs 7 including the goalkeeper.

The Retreat Line will come into effect in two situations during the game:

• A Goal Kick

• A Free Kick to the defending team within it’s own goal area 

At these two restarts, the opposing team is required to move beyond the Retreat Line. The player taking the kick can then pass the ball to one of his team-mates without the pressure of an opposing player nearby. When the ball has left the goal area, the play will resume as normal and the “opposing” team can move inside the Retreat Line.

The Retreat Line in Mini Soccer will be the Halfway Line.

If a member of the opposing team comes inside the Retreat Line before the ball has left the goal area and interferes with play, the Referee will stop play and the restart will be retaken.

Players cannot play the ball long over the Retreat Line from a Goal Kick or Free Kick from within their own goal area—they must play the ball short to a team-mate.
