4 Corner cones, 4 scoring zone cones & 2 half way cones
Balls & 2 colours of Bibs
Be prepared so all equipment and balls and bibs are put out ready for players.
Be aware of any potential danger zones such as goals that may need to be zoned off.
As players arrive they are sent to their normal picth and start of with a game of rondo’s 2v1, 3v1, etc as more than 6 arrive go into a 2nd rondo.
Continue this for no more than 5 mins into your session this is just an introduction as player are arriving.
When the players are all their coah allocates balls for a random warm up
Logical Steps for random warm up:
So every player and coach has a ball and they start by moving around freely inside their area
Step 1 – Can we keep the ball under control, after every step we gently stroke the ball ahead
Step 2– Now we have the ball under control we dont need to keep looking at it, so can we get our eyes up
Step 3 – Now we have our eyes up, can we find space – what do good players find ?
Try to get everyone working hard and moving quickly, without being out of control or a potential danger to others
Then look to add in this weeks ball mastery and skill.
BALL MASTERY – #30 Attacking V Pull Push
SKILL – #5 Chop#
STAR PLAYER – RONALDO
Coach to demonstrate to players stationary and then contiune to execute the skills throughout the warm up.
The Drill Structure
End zones included to pitch with a players from each team starting in the end zone with a ball each.
Players must run ball into end zones to release teammate into middle zone.
They must take the place of the man in the end zone.
Leave players figure the game out, when they do the right thing, PRAISE!
eg when they take the ball into space, away from where their teammate enters.
- Player accelerating out of the end zone exploiting space if it is there
- End zone players creating space away from the ball in play by moving accross the end zone
- Player recognizing when it is better to pass the ball straight away
- Players changing direction and switching the play
- Players off the ball creating space
Go into a competition, keep scores, how many times can you release player from the endzone
2 Team game – no goal keepers
Ideally 3 to 5 per team
1 directional game, with a player starting on opposite sides off the pitch with a ball.
Game plays as normal 1 touch finish inside scoring zone
1 point for a game won
Speed of reactions of outside players to attack quickly
Speed of reactions from teammates to support attacks
Awareness of players to recognise when to take the ball off the pitch to create space for teamates
Progression if a team makes (5) passess they win the game (No to be determined by the coach, dependent on the ability of the players)
