Warm-up (20 mins)

Organization:

For easy transitions to later practices, set up a 9v9 pitch. Mark out two channels in the wide areas of the pitch and split the remaining central area into thirds.

Split your group in to two teams. You can either include goalkeepers in the practice, or (if you have an assistant) give them a separate kicking warm-up.

Position four players from each team in the middle area. They have a ball per team and exchange short passes.

Pair up the remaining players and position them around the outside of the perimeter. They have a ball per pair. These players play long passes over the middle area.

Encourage all players to scan the field and try to keep track of the balls so they can be alert to any risk of getting hit in the back of the head!

Coaching Points:

Short passing, long passing, receiving, movement to create space.

Progressions:

Encourage players in the middle area to play one-touch if it's viable. Ask them to think about when they should use more touches.

Encourage players on the outside to control the ball with different surfaces.

Encourage players to introduce movement. Can they create angles for their teammates' passes? Can they rotate with another player from their team?

Conditional Game (25 mins)

Organization:

Set up a 9v9 pitch. Mark out two channels in the wide areas of the pitch and split the remaining central area into thirds.

Split your group in to two teams of 9.

Teams play a 9v9 keep ball game. Every completed pass in the attacking third earns that team a point.

For each team; place full-backs (wide defenders) in the channels, two central defenders and a goalkeeper in the defensive third, three midfield players in the central third and one central attacker in the attacking third. Use this as a starting point for shape, but allow players to enter other areas to support the play.

Full-backs cannot be tackled if they are in the channels (but their passes can be intercepted).

Encourage players to think about when to play forwards or when to play sideways or backwards.

Coaching Points:

-Angles of support and distance

-Runs

-Short passing, long passing, receiving, movement to create space.

Game (30 mins)

Organization:

Set up a 9v9 pitch. Position spare balls around the perimeter and behind the goal.

Play 9v9. Teams try to score in their opponent's goal as in the real game. Play offside. Always restart with a short pass or dribble in from the side-lines.

Encourage players to think about when to play forwards or when to play sideways or backwards.

Encourage players to think about the runs they can make to support the player on the ball. Angles? Distances?

Encourage use of the whole pitch. Think about how does speed of play and use of space impact the defending team's task?

Coaching Points:

Re-inforce previous coaching points
