Description

Main Moment: BP

Key Principle: Effective Possession. Controlled Possession middle 3rd

Football Problem (using the 5W’s):

What: Give the ball away cheaply in the middle 3rd

Who: #6, #9, #10, #11,#7 & #8

Where: Middle 3rd 

When: When we have the ball moving across the halfway in the middle 3rd.

Why: Poor decision making by individual trying to push the low percentage pass.

Football Problem: We turn over possession cheaply in the middle 3rd due to poor decision and positional support. 

Session Objective: I aim to improve the teams ability to maintain controlled possession in the middle 3rd through better positional shape

in conjunction with quick ball movement.

Team Tasks: Player with the ball to have a minimum of 2 support options at all times allowing them to combine and move the ball quickly

Players Tasks:

-Use and create your own working space

-Accuracy of passing i.e. to the advantage side / space of the receiver

-Handling speed i.e. touch / movement in dribbling

-Positioning (Getting between defenders, back to sideline)

-Scanning (Look over shoulder, tell receiver to check their shoulder)

-Communication (point or call, turn right / left)

Coaches Cues:

-Movement off the ball in areas to receive the ball facing forward

-Back to the sideline to open your body up.

-Scan before you receive

-Communication (Point or call ie. if you can't see the option, can you hear the call option)

Formation:1-4-3-3
