Playing through the 10 (functional-possession)

Set up-

• Field set us as shown (size based upon ability of players and desired outcomes)

• Balls start at bottom of grid with the coach

• 12 players set up as shown (3v2 in defensive half, 1v2 in attacking half, 1v1 in final third)

Organization/Rules

1) Play starts with the coach playing into the defensive half (3v2). The 4/5, 6 and 8 are trying to find the 7 and 11 wide or the 10 centrally in the other grid

2) if the 7 /11 recieve the ball from the defensive half they cannot pass through the grid but must instead recive in such an angle to directly play into the 10.

3) When the blue find the number 9 they get a point and go back the other way for another point

4) IF the white team wins the ball they connect passes for a point (varies depending upon ability of group)

Coaching Points

TECHNICAL

1) Open body shape

2) Reciving on the back foot

3) Pace, accuracy of passing

TACTICAL

Progression

Add small counter goals for the white team to score on after they complete a certain number of passes: for example if white wins the ball off blue and connects 5 passes they get a point, if they can then score in the pugs they get an additional point OR if white wins the ball in one half they can only score in the pugs on the opposite side
