CPOA - Technical (25 mins)

 

Box to Box Switching Play - Technical

 

Group split into 2, working in 2 x 15x15 areas - approx 18 yards apart

 

- Players look to combine within the area with lots of passing and moving

- On the coaches shout of switch they must switch the ball from one area to the other avoiding the balls making contact

- think about types of pass; side foot/laces/lofted/weaker foot

 

Progression 1

- on the coaches shout of switch, a pivot must leave their area to enter the middle of the pitch, receive from their box on the back foot and flick into the opposite box before returning.

- Think about communication

- Receiving on an angle

- Scanning (previous session learning objective) before you receive

 

Progression 2

- Two players now leave the box, one receives on an angle and bounces into the second player who switches the ball to opposite box

- Think about space and staying out the way of the opposite team there will be 4 players in the central area now

 

Progression 3 - The double switch 

players now repeat the process of progression 2 but the ball must be switched back again using the same two pivot players - talk about why a double switch may be used

- Communication will be key here

CPOA - Skill / SSG

Change point of attack - wide but short pitch 30x40 with a half way put in length ways

 

the half way point does NOT restrict players movements - only that they must leave at least one player in a half 

this to encourage the CPOA 

 

6v6 - 1 common/pivot player 

If players successfully play away from pressure and transfer the ball into the opposite side successfully - 1 point

if players successfully play away from pressure and transfer using pivot - 2 points

If a player successfully double switches - 2 points

if players successfully play away from pressure, transfer and score, 3 points
