Organisation

One ball per group of 4. Extras around.

One attacker central, one defender.

How to Play

Centre attacker checks to create space, trying to lose the defender, receive, turn and play to opposite player.

Rotate roles periodically.

Challenge players to find different ways to switch play - roll the defender, set back and check again, set back and end man switch with a longer pass, receive and run/dribble, reverse pass.

Coaching Points

Create separation from the defender by checking away sharp and quick. (use arm to create separation)

Check shoulder.

If pressure is loose- Receive on the back foot and open up.

If pressure is tight- Receive on the front foot and spin the defender.

Switch in as few touches as possible.

Conditioned Game (25 mins)

Organisation:

6v6+1

Teams set up in a 2-3-1 in possession (Principles of a Diamond).

Wide areas marked (if necessary).

How to Play

Play to goal.

For each time the ball is switched from one wide area to the other in an attacking sequence it multiplies the worth of the goal. (ex. 3 switches followed by a goal in the same possession equals 3 points)

Coaching Points

Decisions

- Take the easy points? If opponent is giving you the middle and taking away the switch then take the middle 1 point.

-Try to draw the opponent out by playing small passes in one section of the field? Once they are drawn out switch the play.

-Full backs provide the width.
