Activity 1 (20 mins)

Description :

- split into teams of 3.

-1 ball between group.

- 2 wide players on either side of field. ( rotate )

- player A must pass the ball out to wide player & then make way towards the box.

- wide player will get ball out of their feet & drive towards to touchline before crossing ball into the box.

- player B & C will run ahead & must decide between them who is going where? Who is making the front post run? Who is making the back post run?

- player A will hang off at edge of the box looking for a cut back.

- start drill without a goalkeeper, allow players to get into good habits of timing their runs to meet the cross ball first time.

Progression :

- add in a goalkeeper.

- next progression - add in defender(s) who can now try to block the cross into the box.

Coaching Points

- communication with teammates to decide who is going where.

- time of run - look to see where winger is before we pick up our pace into the box.

- weight of pass when playing wide but also when crossing into box.

- winger: dont neccesarily try to pick someone out, fire ball across the box & allow the players to get on to the end of the pass in front of them.

- body angle when looking to connect with the ball & guide it on target.

Activity 2 (20 mins)

Organization:

2v2 in middle, 4 neutral wall players, 1 goallkeeper, 30x30 grid.

Description:

- players in middle of the grid can only score a goal when it is played in to them from the wall players & then finish with a first time strike on goal.

-wall players cannot step into grid but they can move up & down between their cones.

- wall players have no more than 2 touches, they can also cross the ball into the box first time.

Progression :

player who passes the ball out to a wall player cannot score from it, looking for our teammate inside the grid to get themselves into a good area to get on the end of the cross. Encourage players not to watch the ball but think where could they go to give themselves best chance to score?

Coaching Points

- communication with teammate in grid but also with wall player to let them know where you want the cross to go.

- movement off the ball as soon as ball goes out to wall player.

- weight of pass out to wall player, can we allow them to cross it first time?
