Technical Practice (20 mins)

Objectives:

Primary: Back Foot Receiving / Playing Wide

Secondary: Pass Fake / Playing Forwards to Goal

 

Setup:

Setup 20(w) x 15 Box with cones representing defender in the middle

Split players into groups of 3: Two players act as bumpers and stand either side of the box, one player is then active in the middle.

Player in the middle starts by passing to one of the bumper players.

After each pass from the middle to the outside the middle player backs out and away from the cones and prepares to receive with an open body.

After receiving from the bumper with his back foot he switches play to the other side.

Repeat this for 90 seconds OR play quickest player to 10 passes before switching players.

Coach can make it competitive between red and blue groups.

Note: Minimum 4 boxes for 12 person group. If extra numbers 4 players can work in one box.

 

Progression:

1) Change direction so player receives on both left and right foot

2) Player can perform SAC movements through the cone after each pass

3) Player in the middle can execute a pass fake instead of passing wide. After the pass fake restart the passing cycle.

*If 4 players swap with 4th player after executing the pass fake

When executing the pass fake both the eyes and body should disguise the pass.

4) Add Wall Pass (Move to Tactical Practice B)

Tactical Practice B (20 mins)

Setup: 1v1+2

Same area and teams from the previous exercise.

Middle players are in 1v1 +2 situation and looking to combine with their bumpers or execute a dribble / wall pass to reach the opposite line to score.

No bumper = 1pt

1 bumper = 2pt

2 bumpers or pass fake / wall pass = 3pt

Players are safe on their own line and can use that space to receive from bumpers, alternatively they can attack the space in behind the defender to score.

If ball goes out player restarts with a free ball from their own line.

Make Easier

Players are safe in their own halves (behind the cone)

 

Make Harder

Limit touches/time of bumper

Limit use of bumper, can only use bumper once in each phase of play

Remaining players play in the pitch

Same rules as previous game:

No bumper = 1pt
