Motherwell session pt3

Explanation: Players in the middle play and attempt to play the ball to one of the zone men.

Players in the zone must control the ball in the zone and play to one of team mates.

 Progression: Players play the same game but this time when a zone player receives the ball they are allowed to dribble the ball out of the box and can join in with their team.

A member from the opposite team has to occupy that zone that has been freed up. This will create an over load in the middle (6v4/7v5).

Team in possession aim is to have all the zones filled with the opponent’s team then keep possession for a number of minutes.

Coaching Points:

  • Player in the zone controls the ball outside of the zone and joins in with team.
  • Control the ball through the gates
  • Player who passes ball follows ball and they become the end zone player.
  • Minimize touches of the players forcing them to take 2 or more

Progression/Coaching Points:

  • Look to open up the play and use wide players to penetrate further up the field.
  • Wide player’s first touch should be to move high up the pitch.. ( Within playing distance)
  • Wide players asses all options ( cut back- across the face)
  • Defending players can entre the channel
  • Play 6v6 in the middle and one player can enter the channel
