Session

 

This basic passing session allows player to focus on a particular technique (passing and receiving the ball). Aim is to follow the sequence above whilst hopefully instilling good habits i.e. getting side on to receive ball, checking shoulder etc… Once the group have had a go at right foot, switch sides to left foot. Session can finish with a competition to see who can ‘score’ the most passes into the smaller goals.

Yellow player plays the pass into the red player who upon receiving the ball can score in either goal. The yellow player becomes the defender, coach can incentivise the defender by giving him 2 points if they retrieve the ball and score themselves.

The 5 v 3 possession game gives all players the opportunity to attack, defend and keep possession during a small sided game. 5 yellows aim is to keep possession of the ball-Coach can incentivise them by giving them a target of passes to equal a goal or before they can score a goal. 3 reds aim is to win the ball back and once they do so can score in any of the 4 goals. The positive of this game is you can work on a number of things, possession, counter attacking, defending outnumbered etc…
