    FOCUS OF SESSION

    Passing to maintain possession, with an emphasis on first touch

    TEAM FEEDBACK Comments related to previous game / session

    I noticed during our previous game we had difficulty keeping possession in the back and middle third of the field. If we keep giving possession away easily then we are attacked more often. ….. Tonight we are going to work on possession.

     

    TRAINING: 6 X 10 or 15 minute activities

    Warm-up

    5 min

    Shadow play – no ball, players pretend to move in a space changing speed, jogging backwards, etc as if in a game; (get heart rate up, include shoulder rolls, getting up and down from ground …)

    In pairs, passing a ball to each other through other players moving in the same space.

    Focus

    Activity - Skill, Coaching Points, Game Sense, Athleticism, Flexibility, Strength, Coordination, Stamina …

    Reflection

    Skill 1 Focus:

    Pair passing in rows

    10 min

     

     

     

     

    §  Pairs – 3m distance, moving ball passing back and forth

    §  CP – weight of pass, direction of pass, standing foot placement, striking foot (inside)

    §  Increase distance / both feet

    §  If player cannot return pass with first touch, then ensure first touch sets up the second.

    §  Demonstrate first, then player model, then all group

    §  Stop and remind as needed

    Progression

    §  Jogging beside each other, passing slightly in front

    §  Increase speed

    §   

    Skill 2 Focus:

    First touch when receiving a pass

    10 min

     

     

     

    §  Pairs – 3m, then 5m, then 7m distance apart; give pairs plenty of room between each other

    §  Rows – pass to each other, ball on ground, emphasise the first touch on the reception

    §  First touch CP – soft body part, where do you want the first touch to go; talk to player about their reason for that choice

    §  Progression – bounced ball and first touch, different height etc

    §  Progression – Stay in pairs but now move in a shared space repeating previous activities.

    §   

    Skill 3 Focus:

    Receiving, first touch, then passing with some pressure

    10 min

     

     

    §  Group of 3 – Player A, B and C, in a row 20 metre apart in a 10m wide grid

    §  A passes to B, with C (behind B) applying gentle pressure; B is to ensure first touch is away from C; A should be passing the ball to B’s advantage; B returns pass to A who has moved along the back line away from original passing position

    §  Swap roles after 7-10 attempts each

    §  CP – insist on quality initial pass, insist on quality return pass, player A does not pass the ball until player B calls for it

    §  Other CP – calling for the ball; encourage B to hold off (lean back into) player C so that he/she knows there the player is

    §   

    Small game/s Focus:

    10 min

     

     

     

     

    §  Small game 1:  either 10 x 10 or 15 x 15 m grid square; groups of 4; 3 v 1

    §  Team of 3 to use full width of the grid to keep the ball away from player in the middle

    §  All players to have a turn in the middle

    §  CP – talking, calling, passing lines, first touch, movement of players on outside,

    Progression

    §   5 v 2, 10 v 4 – no goals, keeping possession

    §  No goals but players get a point for putting 5 passes together

    §   

    Pass to shoot

    10 min

     

    §  Drill 1 – player provides give and go pass to lead to a shot (pass weight, pass accuracy, first touch, shot on goal)

    §  Drill 2 – Player A passes ball between 2 markers to find Player B to shoot

    §   

    Warm down

     

    Ball juggling; Throw ball high in the air and control on top of foot; dribbling trickery in a square

    §   

     

    Specific Player Focus and Feedback: Two stars (doing well) and wish (something to work on)

     

    Goalkeeper Planning

    1. James

     

    Loved how you tried to keep possession throughout the game

    Your short passing was very accurate

    ìFirst touch when receiving the ball.

     

    Don’t have to always catch the ball. If too hard or awkward push it to the side or pat it down.

    2. Mary

    Your effort in tracking back was a great example for others

    Like your crossing into the box

    ìTry to use your left foot more

     

    3. Kris

    Good dribbling skills, especially when you ….

    Like how you turned with the ball and then dribbled away.

    ìTalking to your team, giving them extra information …
