Session Organisation

  • 3v2 on the outside plus 1 CM in the middle
  • The 2 defenders can collapse into the central area to tackle once the ball has gone in there. 

Coaching Points

  • 1min First constraint - CM on minimum 4 touches (idea is to paint the picture that in central areas when you come under pressure, it's important to learn how to play quickly because staying on the ball for too long can lead to a loss of possession)
  • Second constraint - Play off a maximum of 3 touches, ideally 1 or 2.

Progression

  • Everyone plays off a maximum of 2 touches
