Jailbreak

- Split the group into 2 teams with 1 goal keeper

- There is a jail for each team - use 4 cones

- the coach stands either left or right of the player and the player receives the ball from a team mate.The player scans and turns into space and head towards to goal and shoot before the discs/line or cones.The player will be under pressure from the coach so they get their shot away quickly. If they Miss they go in jail. If they score they can chose a opponent player to go in jail. If you have a team mate in jail you can chose to either break a team mate out or put an opponent in jail.the loosing team is the team who has all its players in jail and can not take anymore shots.

Technical Points:

Switching game (20 mins)

Using same pitch play a match but a switch of play needs to take place before you can progress into the attacking third (yellow dics) to shoot. If you win possesion in the opponents defensive third no switch is required and you can score as normal.

emphasise the need to hold positions in wide areas to create width and central players stay central to be the pivot. Body shape when passing receiving.

Progression:

Remove restrictions and allow free play but encourage and praise switching and positioning.
