Technical Practice (10 mins)

Key Factors


  • Passing and Receiving of the ball
  • Accuracy of the pass
  • Receiving ball on the back foot and positioning body for first receive and then second pass


Organisation



  • Pair the players together either side of the gates (two cones, adjust distance of cones based on players ability)
  • Two touches required, one to receive the ball i.e. 1st control and push to the side, 2nd one is the pass (use 3 if necessary not to compromise the pass)
  • Accuracy of pass and the need to support their partner with a quality ball

  • Progression/challenge

  • Challenge players to vary exit out of the gate i.e. not always on stronger foot
  • Challenge to use weaker foot to receive
  • Challenge to speed up play (accuracy still key)
  • How many passes can they complete in a minute (only counts if going round the gate)

    Learning Objectives

    Technical Technical
    To develop the technical ability of passing
    Technical Tactical
    To develop an understanding of different ways we can pass a ball to threaten the opposition
    Technical Physical
    Competition element makes the session more physically demanding
    Technical Psychological
    To develop decision making skills around passing, such as what is the best pass to make at a given time
    Technical Social
    Use of team meetings - requires social interaction

    SSG (25 mins)

    Same SSG as last session but with more players - looking to reinforce learning and embed good practice


    KEY FACTORS:

    - 4v4, Multi-directional small sided game

    - One player from the previous red team and one player from the previous blue team become neutral players

    - Neutral players are positioned at the end of the pitch (one on each side)

    - Play begins with the coach passing the ball into the pitch from the ball nest at either side of the pitch

    - From here both teams have the aim of passing the ball to one of the neutral players, and then from here, move the ball to the other neutral player on the other side of the pitch, if this is achieved = 1 point

    - When the neutral player receives the ball, he must pass it back to a player on the same team that he received the ball from

    - If a team moves the ball from one neutral player to the other, and the team move involves at least 2 first time passes = 3 points

    - If the team move is entirely first time passes = 5 points

    - Neutral players can move along the goal line to aid the receiving of passes

    - If the ball goes out of play, play restarts with the coach playing the ball into the pitch from either of the ball nests, which are located on both sides of the pitch

    - Use the coaching process (freeze position coaching) at least once to support the individual player

    - Half way through the allotted time for this part of the session (5 minutes of 10 minutes), both teams have a team meeting to discuss tactics and how best to suceed at the task

    Can progress into a real match if appropriate.

    ORGANISATION:

    - 2 groups of 4 players, and 2 neutral players

    - 2 ball nests, located on the half way line on each side of the pitch, for the restart of play

    - 20x25m pitch
