Key Factors

Add players to each pitch as they arrive, moving from 1 v 1, 1 v 2, 2 v 2 and so on. 

Organisation

Two pitches each with a "scoring zone" at each end of the pitch. Players must dribble or pass into the zone to a teammate before they can score.

Counter Attack 2V1 Scenarios (10 mins)

Defender starts with ball behind post. Dribbles up to the edge of the box and passes the ball to the attacking team at the opposite end of the pitch. Once an attacker recieves the ball, the defender immediately presses and the attacking team play 2V1 to try and score in the main goal. If the defender wins the ball, they recieve a point but they can earn an additional point if they can score in one of the mini-goals. Rotate defenders and attackers after each set.

Coaching point-Making the decision to pass or dribble, off the ball movement, pass and move?

Challenges-Matiss, Mason, Taylor, Tom

When attacking-10 seconds to score a goal

When defending-Beating a player before scoring in a mini-goal

Progression-Emphasize the need to counter-attack quickly once the attacking team have pressed and won the ball. Give attacking team 10 seconds to score a goal once they have recieved it from the defender.

Challenges-Matiss, Mason, Taylor, Tom

When attacking-7 seconds to score a goal

When defending-Beating a player before scoring in a mini-goal

Groups split by ability to challenge/support

Group 1: Matiss, Mason, Taylor, Fin (GK), Jack, Freddy, Tom

Group 2: Dexter (GK), Dan, Owen, Archie, Jacob, Dylan

Breakout Game (10 mins)

Red team has an overload. Aim is to make 5 consecutive passes before breaking out into one of the scoring zones and having a shot on goal. Blue team's aim is to win the ball and break out straight into either scoring zone and score past the keeper. Only 1 attacker is allowed in the scoring zone-unopposed.

Think, Pair, Share (5 mins)

Bring each team together to talk about what has gone well in the game so far and one aspect that they could do better.

Coaches to be based with each team and ask:

Reds-What 2/3 aspects do we need to do well as a team to be able to retain the ball?

Blues-What 2/3 aspects do we need to do really well to win the ball and breakout quickly?

Say to the players that we will be looking to see if they can do the 2/3 aspects they identified really well and we will rate each team out of 3 stars at the end of the game for how well they did at those challenges.
