4v4 to Targets (20 mins)

SETUP - 35x70y, 4v4 playing to targets (play 2 touch) in zone. Bumpers (play 2 touch) on sides. If ball is won on attacking half, must play ball back and then out of defensive half. PROGRESSION - Field players must play 2 touch too.

OBJECTIVE - To move off the ball and support mate on ball, creating space and moving into space.

6v5+GK (30 mins)

SETUP - Attacking half of field. Attack setup with 3-3, D in 4-1. Attack play to large goal, D play to three small goals on half line.

OBJECTIVE - To work on creating and exploiting space with movement off the ball.

COACHING POINTS - As you move, you move the opponent. When spaces, especially in back 4 open, exploit those with runs, then make sure to find your mate on the run. What happens to space when you pinch in, when you go out, when you show for the ball? Look for diagonal runs.
