9v9 Game (45 mins)

Set up:

Using half the field, organize two teams in a 4-3-1 formation.

 Focus is on playing through each third.

 When building out from our goal keeper:

 Centre backs starts in line with the keeper outside the box. Encourage centre backs to drive into space when keeper plays them the ball.

Fullbacks start wide and high towards the out and half way line.

Centre Mid starts in between the top of the half circle and full circle.(shown in diagram)

Two attacking mids start at the bottom of the circle and are staggered, not in straight line.

Striker plays in between the last defenders to stretch the defence as much as possible,as shown.

When pressing the opposition, the red team is what our shape should look like:

Centre backs press up almost to the half way line

Fullbacks are tucked in, close to centre backs.

Centre Mid positions himself in front of the centre backs, splitting the distance.

Two attacking mids staggered in front of the Centre Mid

Striker is right on the retreat line, about to press the CM on opposing team.

 Blue Line is retreat line.
