Everton Diamond (15 mins)

Everton Diamond

Player 1 passes to player 2 (who started this by checking away and then checking to the ball, then checking their shoulder, fixing their shape and receiving on the half turn)

Player 2 takes a positive touch up the pitch, check their outside shoulder, works a turn and then passes back to player 1

If you have a 5th player, use that player as a cm option to play a give and go to get out the other way. If you have only 4 players then as the ball comes back to player 1, simply take it out the other side.

Same movement happens on the opposite side to player 3 and then when the ball comes back to player 1 we look to switch the pitch to player 4 on the other side.

Once the ball is with player 4 the same plan works again on the other side.

One on one in a circle

2 players go into the middle of the circle. The rest of the players space out around the circle.

3 players with soccer balls on the outside.

1 player in the middle is designated as the attacker, the other the defender for the entire 1 minute turn.

When the ball comes into the circle to the attacker, they pass to anyone on the outside who doesn't have a ball and is not next to the player who passed to them.

Set up

Make space appropriate for the size and ability of the players

2 or 3 balls on the outside to allow for variety of options for attackers

Keys point

1) Movement off the ball to get onto the ball

2) Where to take first touch?

3) defensive pressure is key to make the attackers deal with in game pressure scenarios

4) the attacker will have to make a turn at some points, key in on their turning principles
