Screen 1 (30 mins)

Technical Passing warm up that replicates the same or similar touches and movements that players will encounter during pattern and game play taking into account an element of improvised passing technique using a skill type pass too. (guided improvision)

 

Practice 1:

 

the player in the middle plays a sequence of 1-2 passes starting from left to right then back from right to left. From outside to inside then inside to outside, changing feet as they go from one side of the manaqin to the other.

 

The ball will be served in both directions on the floor then on the half volley (Laces), on a Laced volley then finally back on the floor but the middle play must now play the final set of pass with a rabona back to the servers on both feet.

 

The player must aim complete a 'clean sweep' no mistakes! correct feet when passing and accurate passes.

 

Practice 2:

Triangle movements to receive the ball between tight angles.

the player in the triangle plays a 1-2 pass with the server then moves to the outside of the cone and plays another 1-2 pass. The player then moves quickly around the top of the triangle to then drop off checking their shoulder and calling for the ball on the inside of the triangle to play a 1-2 pass with a different foot, then moving to the outisde and playing another 1-2 pass.

The cycle is then repeated.

 

The ball is first played on the floor, laced half volley and a lace volley.

 

 

Practice 3:

 

Wall pass game. players must play the ball off the wall to the other side of the pitch then run out of the playing zone and get through the speed ladder before the ball leaves the playing area then pass the ball off the wall again to the otherside.

 

If a player passes the ball from outside the line or if their pass goes outside the side lines beforeif crosses the red line they lose a life. players have to complete a forfit at the end of the game if they lose all their lives.

 

 

Practice 4:

4 players on the outside 1 at a time in the middle.

 

player 1 passes the ball to the CM, who is positiond slightly outside the square in the middle. DETAIL: The pass must go diaganally across from outside the orange to the other side of the red spot marker.

 

The CM then has 3 touches to get the ball to player 2 passing the ball to the correct side of the orange cone.

DETAIL: Once the ball is received the player must now turn with the ball from outside to inside and across the small square to the opposite side of the red spot marker on their right and pass to player 2 diagonally across the red spot marker to the outside of the orange cone.

 

All Players:

 

Follow their passes going from their outside numbers to the CM then turning out and passing the ball to the next player and following their pass then becoming that number they just passed too on the outside.

 

On the outside touch the ball across their body to the other side of the orange cone before passing the ball Diagonally to the CM.

ball retention pattern

 

players involved follow their pass and assume the duties of the position. All players should have a basic understanding of what everyone is doing so they can understand the knock on affect of good and bad decision making.

 

timings of off the ball movements is key, more datails will be given verbally. as a rule of thumb its good practice to start your off ball movements as the ball is travelling before it gets to the player you're due to receive the ball from, dependant on the distance the ball has to cover.

 

this pattern promotes our team shape and involves the basic movements on and off the ball as well as sticking to our philosophy of playing a shorter more technical game with more interchanging an movements off the ball.
