Technical (15 mins)

Set up 2 areas with four squares with tall cones / mannequins scattered throughout.

Two teams of Blue and Red. At the same time, one player from each team must go through the area dribbling in and out of the mannequins.

Players must go through all 4 squares before they can move to their teammates on the outside.

Once the player has completed the exercises, their teammate can then move through the area, replicating the same practice.

 

Progression

Place 4 defenders in the squares. Defenders can't leave their designated squares. One attacker from each team must go at the same time and dribble through the squares.

The attackers must go through the 2 squares that have the defenders in (Blue attackers must go through the 2 areas that the Red defenders are positioned in and vice versa).

The attackers can go through the squares that their teammates are in (the Blue can go into the Blue defenders square). But they must eventually go into the squares where the defenders are positoned.

Tactical 1v1 (20 mins)

Setup

- Set up 2 areas with four squares set up with end zones as seen above.

 

- Atttackers need to move from Yellow to Green zones on both sides, with 2 defenders to beat. The defenders cannot leave their boxes. If the attacker is successful, they get 1 point.

 

- The Defenders objective is to tap the ball with their ball however they must be in complete control of their own football (they can't kick the ball away to try and touch the attackers ball), to encourage protection of the ball for the attacker. If the Defender does so, they get one point for their team.

 

- Once the player has completed the exercise, they deliver the ball to their teammate on the opposite side to start. The game goes Yellow to Green in both directions.

 

Progression

- The game is the same however the defenders don't have a ball, attempting to tackle the attacker. If they successfully win the ball, they must dribble to the Yellow zone to gain one point.

Match (25 mins)

Setup

Set up 2 areas with four squares and 2 or 4 goals with GK (numbers depending), .

 

Two teams of Blue and Red. When attacking (in this case Red) defending players (blue) cannot leave their designated boxes, but the attackers (Reds) can move anywhere they wish. This potentially creates 1v1, 2v1, 3v1 situations.

 

The ball starts with one of the GK's who will pass to an attacker (Red). Once they have passed the ball, the Attacker is forced to deal with the pressure of the defender or make a pass.

 

The objective of the Attackers is to finish at the opposite goal. Each team takes it in turns to attack.
