Ball Mastery with Triangle

Red Player at the Top of the Triangle serves the ball with her hands to the Blue Player. The Blue Player plays the ball back to the Red Player and moves to the the next area of the triangle.Once the Blue Players reaches #3 they move back the opposite way.

Coach Chooses the way the ball is played back. Instep Volley with Right Only, Laces Volley with the Right Only, etc.

Each Round lasts for 1 minute before the switching players .

MOVEMENT is key as the you want the player moving at game speed.

TOUCH & ACCURANCY are both very important

Session Organisation:

Create 3 squares of 8 x 8

Area set up as shown, can be adjusted for different age groups with 3 teams of approx. 5 in each.

- Teams send 1 defender to the next square (clockwise).

- Play starts with the attacking team getting a ball from outside and playing it in. This should create 4 v 1 in each square.

- Each attacking team aim to complete 5 passes without the defender touching the ball (1 point for each 5 completed passes).

- Every 30 seconds rotate defenders until all 5 team mates have been a defender

- Keep track of scores.

Key Messages:

- Be proactive and if "ball moves, you move".

- "Circulate ball" in your area and make sure you "find the line".

- "Open to recieve" and "back foot" when in possesion.

PROGRESSION:

- If a defender touches the ball 3 times they can then help the next square defender for a bonus point. e.g. Red defender would move into next square to help green defender.

COMPETITION:

- Attacking team 1 point awarded for completing 5 passes.

- Defenders get 1 point for touching the ball 3 times.

- The team with the least points are "on the line"!!!

2 ball drill

Warmup:

Two ball drill

10X10 to start. adjust as needed.

Two balls, 1 defender.

Coaching points: Possession demands you to be always on the move, and always communicating. No communication equals a player with two balls.

- Quick thinking. Must know your options before the ball even reaches your feet

- don't invite the pressure. Waiting until you are pressed is too long. Your greatest advantage is numerical supiority. Allowing a defender to collapse on you isolates you and plays into their hand. Make them always chase the game.
