Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Introduction- 15 min
Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Introduction- 15 min

Introduction- 15 min (15 mins)

  • What: When the 1st attacker has possession of the ball, we want to recognize the moment to take opposition 1v1 or find a forward pass
  • Who: wingers (7 & 11)
  • Where: wide areas on the middle third
  • When: 1v1 against defender
  • Why: the players aren't recognizing the right moment to take opponents 1v1 or to find the supporting pass because the defender is putting high pressure

  • Organization:

    • 12x12 box; 2 players

    Instructions:

    • A is defender
    • B is attacker
    • defender starts play by passing to B (attacker)
    • B gets a point anytime he dribbles or passes through one of the two gates at the other end of the field
    • 2 minute games and then switch

    Coaching Points/Questions:

    • If there is space in front of attacker, take space
    • If defender closes in fast, but there is space behind him- take big touch to space behind defender to penetrate with a dribble
    • If defender is closing in fast, but there is a lane to pass- find the penetrating pass forward
    • quick thinking- head up, awareness of where defender is

    Regressions/Progressions:

    • switch side of defender 
    • regression: have defender start further away from attacker
    • progression: have defender start in between the two gates
