Passing Skill -3v1 (20 mins)

Key Factors

3v1 in 4 Squares

Red and Blues in Possession - Yellows Defending

Swap defender after 1 minute

Keep Ball

To start - no instructions given just play.

Box 1 - bad example.

Players too close so easier to mark

Not utilising all of the space available

Box 2 - Good Example

Using all of the space.

As ball is played from Player one to player 2, using box corners as a reference point, as that ball is played, can player 3 get in a position to "support play" by getting into position 4.

If ball is played back from 2 to 1, reverse the run and return to 3.

Stay inside the box, but use all of the space available.

Progression 1 - Box 3

Rotation

So if one has the ball and not under pressure, can 2 and 4 make crosoong runs to swap positions

AT NO STAGE SHOULD A MAN WITH THE BALL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE THE FEET OF THE TWO OTHER SUPPORTING PLAYERS

Progression 2

6v2

Keep in same area zones but can transfer the ball between zones

If player receiving the ball has their back to the team, can they set and then play through into next zone.

Set up 60x40 pitch wth 3 equal areas.

Free play for 5 minutes, looking for mechanics to be showed from technical and skill.

Conditions - Try to play from the goalkeeper,Players try to stay in their zones and try to pass forward into next zone. Allowed to play back if no pass on forward.

If goal is scored from pass from goalkeeper then passed through every zone without players leaving that zone 5 points

Goal scored passing through the zones but player needs to travel into next zone 2 points, any other goal scored 1 point. Swap players around in zones every few mins.

Progression/Regression - could limit number of touches, trying to get the pass into next zone quicker, go back to unlimited touches if needed.

Learning outcomes - Hopefully reinforce the mechanics that we have gone through in technical and skill. Want to see plenty of forward passing, relaxing with the ball.
