Functional practice

Description:

Practice where midfield players must pass to their neighbour. This patient moving of the ball from side to side is designed to tire out the defence.

White team can move into the box and attack when the wide player takes their first touch through the blue cones before the blue defender gets to the edge of the box.

If blue team wins the ball, pass it into the mini goals as soon as possible.

Objective:

Earn the right to attack by unbalancing the defence and tiring them out.

Coaching points:

Receive with back foot and pass with other quickly.

Eyes up to see where the defenders are and to see which side is the weak side.

Remain patient, bide your time the defence will tire the longer you play, meaning you get more chances.

Progression:

Can play straight into striker who can then play into any player.

Add a screening blue midfielder. Add another centre back. Add another white attacker.

Increase time limits.

Remove restriction of having to pass to your neighbour.

Phase of play

Description: A phase of play split into 4 blocks that gives opportunities to penetrate in behind or build around the penalty area across 4 of the 5 lanes. Out of possession team travel through blue cones to score 1 or combine with AM for 2.

Player positions will depend on numbers:

1. Blue GK 2. B CB 3. B CB 4. B DM 5. White ST 6. W DM 7. W CM 8. B AM 9. W CM 10. B DM 11. W LM 12. B CB

Objective: The players have strategies and experience with different approaches.

Coaching Points: 

Block 1 (5 mins)

- Coach to organise the play. Ensure the practice looks realistic enough. (3 mins rest)

Block 2 (7 mins)

- Penetrate with passes in behind early.

- ST to come short to go behind

- ST to occupy both defenders

- Penetrative runs from midfielders, third man running (this should earn space to retain and build) (3 mins rest)

Block 3 (7 mins) - In possession midfielders are to occupy different lanes; when ball is won back, the ball must be received in all lanes before shooting, except if first ball is in behind. (3 mins rest)

Block 4 (7 mins) - Combine with ST. ST to come short to play into their feet.  Wall pass allows options to retain and build or penetrate? Wall pass if closely marked to exploit space; or half turn if not marked to draw in pressure.
