3v3 / Stay in Channel (15 mins)

Instructions:

3v3, but players must stay in their channel.

Ball is passed to opponent and round begins, if point is scored or ball goes out of grid next group of 6 begin new round.

Points are now scored by passing ball through the gate.

Ball can be passed between channels to teammates, but players have to stay in their assigned channel.

Players can score on any gate, not just the one in their channel.

 

Coaching:

Encorage players to take on their opponents

Look up and see if they can score on a gate outside of their channel

 

Defensively players must close down opponents when the ball is in their channel (Immediate Pressure)

When ball is in another channel they have to stay between the ball and their gate so they don't give up easy goals (Cover)

3rd defender

Instructions:

Add 3rd defender

Limited to the shaded area - provides defensive cover/depth (game realism)

Counter principle is pressing - opportunity to set the defenders up for the press while also not over coaching that side. Focus on the build if we're trying to develop the build phase


Coaching:

Decision making after the press has been beaten

Find 9 - movement to support if 9 cannot turn

Create overload in shaded area - pass vs dribble

3rd defender can only cover 1 of the goals - decision making to score in easiest goal available

Utilize GK to buy time, reset shape and build again - sets standard for using GK in full build out game where they can then switch the field (not the focus of this set up)
