Passing Practice (15 mins)

Players

GK - 4-3-3

Excess players can be used as defenders (Passive at first)

Explanation:

- Play starts from the goal keeper and the passes follow the sequence

- Once a pattern emerges GK moves another ball into play, or reverses the sequence

- If a player tries to pass to a team mate with a ball they see them as 'marked' and has to take another option

Progression 1:

- Players will make their own passing pattern in the midfield three but it has to touch every player before being passed out - Players move in logical order

Progression 2:

- Players to play in any sequence they wish to but the ball must touch every player before going back to the starting point

- Passive defenders added into the practice

Perception:

- Players calling for the pass

- Players showing towards the ball

- Constantly scanning

Decision:

- Finding an available team mate

- Showing for the ball at the correct time - Not too early or too late

Execution:

- Speed of pass

- Passing accuracy

- Body position

Positioning Game (25 mins)

Explanation:

- 6 v 6 + 3 Jokers

- Jokers are to play with the team in possession

- Play starts at either end with a joker - Play alternates with red & green having one turn each with the football

- A goal is scored when the ball is passed into the mini goal acting as 7 & 11

Team Task: Can you play from the back to the front, through midfield?

Player Tasks:

- Make the field as big as possible

- Face forward when receiving the ball

- Hit 7 & 11 as quick as possible once ball is in midfield

Cues:

- Create the four options off the ball (left, right, centre & far) to open up the field space

- As the ball is travelling to you, which way do you want to face?

- What task did I give everyone once the ball is played into midfield?

Game Training (30 mins)

Explanation:

- Play always starts from the goal keeper who is playing to red

- Red must try and build up against the green defence

- Red are to score in either of the three mini goals at half way

- Red will receive two points if they score a goal with all three midfielders linking up

- Green have one attack to score a goal in the main goals

Team Task: Can we play out from the back through the opposition defence to score a goal?

Player Tasks:

- 3 & 4 split to the edge of the 18 yard box

- 3 & 4 help 2 or 5 when in possession

- 2 & 5 level & outside their opposing defenders

- 6, 8 & 10 between lines and between defenders

- 10 to support 2, 5, 6 & 8 when they are in possession

- Create an overload in the midfield to help our controlled possession

Cues:

- When our goal keeper has the ball, ensure that our 3 & 4 are on the edge of the 18 yard box

- When 2 or 5 have the ball, 3 or 4, can you create depth so we can maintain possession?

- As the ball travels to 3 or 4, 2 & 5 ensure that you are level & outside their 7 & 11 - Affect their decision making

- 6, 8 & 10 as the ball is travelling towards you, can you face forward to play forward?

- 10 as 6 or 8 receive the ball, can you become an outlet to play forward?
