Passing and Receiving (10 mins)

Objective: Passing and Receiving with Direction

Organization:

-In a 25x25 yard square, we have a minimum of 8 players and mark out a triangle in the center (red cones).

- From the Start Point Player 1 passes to player 2 and follows his pass; Player 2 passes to player 3 at the lower tip of the triangle(pass 2). Player 3 sets the ball to player 2 (pass#3) who passes first time across to player 4b (pass#4).

-Plaer 4b sets the ball back to player 3 (pass#5) who has spun around to receive and passes out wide to the opposite corner of the square (pass#6 to player 5). All players follow their pass to the next position.

-From this point, player 5 starts the same pattern again in the opposite direction, using player 4a in the sequence this time.

Coaching Points :

- Delivery of a quality pass on the ground with good passing technique.

- Pass should be well directed and weighted to make it easy for the next player to pass first time

- Can you move in line with the incoming pass(half turn/open body shape) so you can pass the ball first time?

- Signal which foot you want the pass delivered to.

-Can the players in the center triangle quickly open up a channel to allow a through pass to the next player?

-Good tempo and working pace.

Interval Duration: 2 x5 minutes; 10 minutes total.

Rondo #3 Playing out of the back

An area of 12x12 yds, with 8 players max divided into 2 equal teams. The players used in this 4vs2 are simulating the tactical scenario of playing out of the back and how to combine with each other against a team who presses with two forwards representing a 4-4-2. In this example the CB #5, LFB #3, RFB #2 and HMDF #6 are combining to keep possession of the ball.

The objective is to keep possession within a diamond shape outside/inside the square. This is much more difficult for players because depth perception is required against two players who are pressuring and supporting each other as a unit.

In this example the #5, starts with the ball and passes to the #3 who is closed down by #9, so the ball is played back to #5, who then plays the 3rd line/split pass to the #6. #6 recycles possession to the #2 who moved forward accordingly. (#7/11 are idle players who rotate in for #9/10 to defend)

Teams can rotate into the center to defend as a unit, when they intercept the ball and repossess it by running out of the box with it under control or pass it to a teammate waiting outside of the square (#7/11). (Transition is another element to decision making).

A time limit of 45 seconds within the middle defending and rotate the defenders

Coaching Points:

Dispersal - Use as much of the space available to make the defender run. Create length and width within the square based on the ability to receive and pass the ball quickly.

Angle of Support - always create and maintain a triangle shape.  Open body to see majority of the field (left and right) and receive the ball on your front foot to move.

Distance - make sure you position yourself where the defender can not mark two attackers

Passing - make safe side passes where only your teammate can receive the ball; pass to the foot away from the defender

First touch - is the ability to control the ball in your personal space in front of you

Touch Direction - is the ability to take their first touch away from pressure or eliminate the opponent to link to their next action

Tempo - the pace of the ball means to make the ball travel fast enough not to be intercepted but controllable

Timing - Players off the ball should be anticipating a move to support the player on the ball when the ball is travelling.

Good Position - is where you can receive the ball at your feet but it can not be intercepted

- Once in 'end safe zone' reds can then turn, by either turning or using Coach/extra player at end, to bounce ball out and try to score into goal.
