POSSESSION GAME (15 mins)

Practice Objectives:

To improve our ability to keep possession and provide positional support so that we can progress


Breaking the last line from central open ball positions to create scoring chances


Practice Explanation:

4v4+2 Positional possession game


The pitch has three zones. Scoring zones (Zone 1 and Zone 2) at either end, and Zone A which is the main playing space and where the play starts.


BLUE TEAM attacks towards Zone 1 and YELLOW Team plays the other way and attacks Zone 2


The team in possession can earn a point in two ways:
1) By connecting five passes inside Zone A
2) By playing a pass from Zone A in to a teammate who runs in behind the opposition defence into the end zone with the ball, before scoring into one of the two mini-goals.
A neutral player can run in behind from their wide channel


When a pass is played into Zone 1 or Zone 2, one defender can recover into the end zone, making a 1v1 situation. The attacker has five seconds to score.


BLUE and YELLOW players have no limit on their touches
Neutral (RED) players are limited to two touches

POSITIONING


In possession teams should use a 2-3-1 structure which the two neutral players (RED) play in the wide channels.
Out of possession, teams should use a 2-2 Box and a half structure; defenders can move into the wide channels to press the neutral players

Positional possession game training


The pitch has three zones. Scoring zones (Zone 1 and Zone 2) at either end, and Zone A which is the main playing space and where the play starts with the corners cut off.

The lines separating Zone A from the two end zones act as an offside line.


BLUE TEAM attacks towards Zone 2 and YELLOW Team plays the other way and attacks Zone 1


Possession can only be moved into an end zone via a pass. Two attackers and two defenders can move into the end zone.


Points are scored in the following ways:
1) Two points for a goal scored within two touches after a through ball into the end zone
2) Two points if assist comes from an open ball
3) One point for a goal scored inside six seconds from the 2v2 situation in the end zone


A neutral player can run in behind from their wide channel
Ball restarts in ZONE A

BLUE and YELLOW players have no limit on their touches
Neutral (RED) players are limited to three touches

POSITIONING


In possession teams use a 1-4-1-2-3 structure, with the two neutral players (RED) operating as wide attackers in the channels. Out of possession teams set up in a 1-4-3-1 shape. YELLOW is in their in-possession shape and BLUE is in their out-of-possession shape
