8v8+5 mini goals (20 mins)

Organisation

Create a zone from the edge of the area up to the half way line.

Place 5 mini goals as illustrated. Position balls around the edge of the grid.

Split players into 2 teams - 8 red players (2-2-3-1) and 8 yellow (4-4) + GK.

Instructions

Players must remain within the shaded area at all times until the third objective, when the entire area becomes accessible to all players.

Play commences with the red team in possession. Their first objective is to keep possession of the ball under pressure from the yellow players. If the red team complete 8 passes they receive 1 point.

If the yellow team wins the ball, the objective of the red team is to win the ball back within 6-8 secs. If they are unable to do this, the red team receives 1 point and if the red team manages to score in any one of the 5 mini goals, they receive 2 points.

When the red team win back possession, their third objective is to attack and score in the goal with the goalkeeper within 6-8 secs. If they do so, they receive 2 points.

Red team play with unlimited touches when in possession in the first objective, but when they win the ball back in the third objective, they are limited to 1-2 touches.

Coaching Points

1. The practice should develop very quick transitions to press/defend when possession is lost. It should also develop very quick transitions to attack when possession is won back.

2. In the transition from defence to attack there needs to be good decision making under pressure of space and time.

3. This practice develops the team's ability to keep possession under pressure with limited space and time.

4. Correct body shape (open up and half turn) and positioning is importnat to view the options for where the next pass is going.

5. Checking aweay from the marker before moving to receive the ball is especially important to create space in tight areas.

6. Decision making is key - when to pass to feet, when to pass into space, the weight of pass and the timing and direction of runs in behind.
