Session 1 (15 mins)

Organization


 - A small group of players at the half way line with a ball

 - A small group of players wide right 10 yards inside the half

 - Add a mannequin 10 yards in front of the wide player 

Activity


 - The player central will play the ball wide to the wide player who has dropped off to create the space to receive

 - The wide player will receive and beat the defender

 - The central player will make two runs, one to lose the defender and the 2nd to attack the cross

  The objective for the players is to find the fastest way forward and have a positive end result. This focuses on the quality of the cross and the finish. What sort of pass do we need out wide? Is there acceleration after beating the player? is the cross firm? Is the cross in the air? what sort of touch do we need to finish?


Progression


- Add an extra option were the two players play a 1-2 around the mannequin. The ball is played closer to the touchline and the cross is a pull back for the CM to finish.

Session 2 (15 mins)

Organization


 - FB starts at the halfway line out wide (7v7 field)

 - Mannequin starts 10 yards in front of the FB

 - Winger starts behind the mannequin

 - Striker starts 15 yards from goal centrally with a cone 2 yards either side of them

Activity

 - The FB dribbles towards the mannequin, as they do so the winger will make a decision to either pull wide or move inside

 - If the winger moves inside the FB will play a 1-2 around the mannequin and cross from the wide area

 - If the winger pulls wide the FB will play and then overlap, the winger will drive inside and then play the pass back to the FB to cross

 - The striker will do two movements, the first to move the defender the 2nd to use the space

 - If the winger moves outside the striker will move near post then spin to the far

 - If the winger moves inside the striker will pull out to the far post and then burst across the front post.

  The objective for the players is to find the fastest way forward and have a positive end result. How does adding extra player effect the speed and the quality? Do the players understand the scenario and so the movements that are being made? What sort of cross are we looking for? Is it better in the air or on the floor? Why do we need two movements from the striker?


Progression


- Split the players in to 3 groups. Each group gets the chance in the strikers position,  which group can score the most?

Session 3 (15 mins)

Organization


 - Place a rebounder 3 yards out of the area at an angle 

 - Have one player start in goal all other players start central 5 yards back from the rebounder in a line

 - All players have a ball

Activity

  - The players will take it in turns to play a pass off the rebounder and then finish first time 

  - If you score, you get your ball and go back to the line 

  - If you miss you are in goal

  - If you concede two goals you are out of the game

  - If a player scores to get the person in goal out, the person who was behind them in the line is the next GK.

 - The players do not have to wait for the person in front of them to go in goal unless they are replacing a player that has been knocked out.

 - The final 3 players will go one goal conceded and out but they have to wait for each other to get in goal.

  The objective for the players is to have fun and work on their first time finishing.


Progression


- Use the rebounder on the other side so that it becomes a volley finish
