6 Players - 7, 10, 9, 11, 8, 6

Coaching Points

- Body position when receiving the ball

- First touch in any given moment

- Movement to the ball, too early or too late.

- Pass of the ball, was it timed correctly

- Focus on making the run into the space which the player is going to pass it into rather than waiting for it or receiving it in behind.

Encourage players to be creative and use it as a build up to what they are going to be doing throughout the session.

7, 11, 10, 9, 6 and 8 VERSUS 2, 4, 5, 3, 6 & 1

Objective of the attacking team is to use the width to create scoring opportunities. Width is a tool to discombobulate the opposition to create gaps. As soon as we see a gap, the forward players need to be anticipating it and the midfield players need to see it.

Defending team objective is to either play the ball back to the feeder for 1 point dribble through for 3 points or to make a wall pass for 5 points.

Coaching points

1) Possession is a means to an end, it will be used to position the opposition in areas where they open up gaps and are vulnerable to the attack.

2) Width is a tool to create holes in the defence

3) 6 & 8 need to notice when the defence are transitioning from one wide area into another to use it to there advantage.

4) 6 & 8 can never be on the same horizontal or vertical axis when neither of them have the ball, they must be off-set to each other and always changing their axis movements.

5) 9 & 10 are the first wave of attack in the 18 yard box if there is a corridor to play the ball into.

6) 8, 6, 11, 7 are the second wave of the attack in the 18 yard box if there is no corridor to play the ball into.

7) 9 & 10 - 10 must play off of the shoulder to the 9

Progressions

4 mins - Free Play

4 mins - If wide player is in lots of space, attack that 2 or 3 with speed. As soon as you attract numbers, the 8, 10 or 6 needs to be in support for the pull back.

4 mins - 6 & 8 manourvere the opposition to use width as a tool to open up spaces for the 9 & 10 to be played into

4 mins - Use the 7 & 11 to tuck inside and make the runs to receive the ball in behind of the defence through the lines.

4 mins

Coaching Points

- Receiving position from all players. 7 & 11 must have first touch going forward if they have space, if they are in close quarters, first touch must be in direction of the support.

- 6 & 10 need to know the spaces of attack before the ball has come into them

ESSG - 10v9 (20 mins)

Re-itterate points from SSG

1) Now look to discuss how the 2 & 3 support the 7 & 11 in attack. How I want them to be positioned when the ball is all the way on the other side of the field so that they can create a quantitative overload. If one moves inside, the other moves outside and vice versa. Never support on the same axis unless there is no where else to support from. BUT, if you are supporting on the same axis, this means that you are supporting too late.

2) Can the attacking team now use the defensive width to create goal scoring opportunities - If there is no pressure, can you dribble and/or keep a hold of the ball, maybe stand still to encourage the opposition to fall out of position to then get attracted to you.

3) When the opposition win the ball, I want the 2 & 3 to move inside and press the opposition whilst the 4, 5 & 6 create a back 3 and the 7 & 11 position themselves in a 2 & 3 position to create balance in dfence.
