Warm up (10 mins)

Organisation:

-A playing area is split into five separate grids . One player will occupy each of the five grids. One ball required for group of five.

Activity:

-Players pass the ball among themselves. After making a pass, the passer must change grids with another player right, left, or in the center of the area. Players are allowed two touches.

-Add a second group of five players that participate in the same activity with a separate ball. This will increase the pressure without adding defenders.

Coaching Points:

-Players receive the pass across their body in order to see the entire playing area.

-Regardless of movement, players should always be looking towards the centre of the area and be able to see the ball to increase awareness and speed of play.

Variations:

- Depending on number of players, add a third group and create a larger playing area for all participants.

Conditoned lead-in (25 mins)

Organisation:

-Each team is separated into their own five zone area.

Activity:

-The white team maintains possession in their own five zone area while two orange defenders move into the playing area. At this point the game becomes 5 vs. 2.

-The white player who makes the pass must change positions with any other white player; always maintaining the balance of only one player in an area.

-The white team maintains possession for as long as possible. Once the orange team wins possession, they play across to their team and two white players move across to defend.

Coaching Points:

-When maintaing possession, always stay open to the field. Receive the ball across your body as much as possible.

-As you move into another area, always be able to see/ show for the ball.

-Mental recognition to always move after you pass.

Progression:

- Add a third defender creating a 5v3 situation.

- Decrease the size of the pitch, enforcing players to focus on their first touch, whilst thinking about who they're passing to before recieving the ball.

- Focus on communication; if players do not communicate who they're passing to, they lose possession of the ball (even if the pass reaches a team mate)

5v2 / 5v5 Game (25 mins)

Organisation:

-The game is 5 vs 2 inside the middle playing area. (Variable-Random)

Activity:

-Orange keeps possession for five consecutive passers. The orange passer must change positions with a teammate after each pass.

-If necessary, the orange can pass back to GK2 to maintain possession, but this pass does not count towards the five required passes.

-After five passes are made the orange team attacks GK1 playing 5 vs 5. At any point if the defending team gain possesion they can counter through the 2 remaining attackers and score the opposite end. If they score, teams change roles.

Coaching Points:

-Players recieve the pass across their body in order to see the entire playing area.

-Regardless of movement, players should always be looking towards the centre of the area and in a half turn position.

-In order to maintain possession, advise players to look at a range of passing such as short and angled.

-Once the attacking team creates five passes, attack at speed to potentially overload.
