Playing out from the back (20 mins)

Playing out from the back Practice

Equipment

Use half 9v9 pitch (or reduce size if numbers are lower). balls, bibs, 2 extra goals/poles, cones/discs

Aim

set up attack V defence with an overload of defending team. Defending team also have a goalkeeper.

Create a retreat line for the attacking teamapprox 5 yards infront of 2 goals nearl halfway line. the defending team set up asp per start of a match. The practice starts by the coach kicking a ball deep into the defending teams half. Once the kick takes place the attacking team can press. The attacking team attack the one goal and the defending team can score in either of the two smaller goals. If the coach notices a noticeable switch in play from either team then the goal is worth double. when the ball goes out of play or dead the attackers retreat to the retreat line and the coach kicks the ball again to repeat the practice. After 5 mins switch attackers and defenders (giving extra player to reds). After both teams have played, give any pointers during drinks break and repeat 5mins each again.

Progression

Give extra player/players to attacking team to make harder or move retreat line forward.

Only allow defending team to score once they have moved pass the retreat line. The defending team have to complete a certain number of passes before they can shoot.

Key points

Encourage scanning, body shape, movement off the ball, good decision making.
