Passing Practice (10 mins)

Set up

Create a 36 x25 metre playing area and split into three 12x25 areas.

How to play

Both teams play at the same time. The ball can only travel to the next third. Whichever player doesn't play the forward pass then moves into the next third (to support, over/under lap). Once ball has reached the other GK, get set in your positions again (2 in each area).

- Use the GK's to bounce the ball off.

Progression

- Play with one ball, one team attack and the other defend. Start with interception only to start.

Player tasks

When moving forward, can you move where you can receive in space.

Positional game (20 mins)

Set up

- Create a field from the edge of the box to the half way line using the width of the box to halfway and split into three.

- Team set up in a 3 - 2 - 1 formation until they win possession.

How to play

- The game always starts from a GK, there are no throw ins.

- Start in defending 3rd and PASS into the middle 3rd (no dribble) wit one player following pass to create a 3v2 in the middle.

Once successfully in the middle third players can dribble into attacking 3rd (at least one player must stay in middle third).

- A goal is scored by a successful pass to a GK at the attacking end (a goal can only be scored from attacking third).

- If your team loses the ball quickly get defensive shape!

- If defending team win the ball, quickly score using the same method.

Player tasks

Look to move forward into space after passing forward.

Use your pass forward to move defenders and exploit space left.

Support your pass in front or behind.

Pass to the player in the biggest space.
