Stage 2: Small Sided Game (20 mins)

THE SESSION:

- We are working in the attacking 3rd just before the 18 yard box. In the central area. The 7, 11, 9 and 10 will all play keep away against the opposing teams 6 and 8 trying to combine 5 passes together. Once 5 passes have been reached, the attacking team tries to play a through ball into the wide shaded areas for the 7 or 11 to run onto and get a cross into the box for the remaining 3 players to try and score.

- The 4 must remain in the 18 yard box and can not pressure the wings when the through ball is played.

PROGRESSIONS:

- Increase the amount of passes need before playing a through ball into the wings

- the 4 can pressure the cross in the wing area.

KEY MESSAGES/POINTS:

- Communication

- Recognizing where the space is and playing a properly weighted ball to penitrate the defensive line.

- Can the 7 and 11 stay wide to create width and try and spread out the defenders in the middle and also make playing a through ball easier to deal with.

- After 5 passes have been made. Can we recognize the movement trigger of a player with time and space being able to pick their head up to start making our runs into the wide areas as early as possible
