⚽️ Developing the Midfield 3 | 77-P5
Here we have a 3 v 3 + 3 Rondo based practice that is focused on developing central midfielders ability to maintain possession when under pressure. The objective is for the three central players to combine with their three outside team-mates and make 10 passes earning the team a goal. If the defenders win possession, the roles are reversed with the the possession team now becoming the defenders. Short sharp combination play, positional awareness and communication are key to excelling in this practice! 💪⚽️

⚽️ WM/FB Combinations & Recovery | 62-P4
It's time to get our wide players combining and performing recovery runs in this high intensity practice. We have two groups working at the same time, with the player finishing in the 1st area transitioning quickly to defend vs the attacker in the 2nd area in a 1 v 1 scenario. Speed of recovery runs, finishing accuracy and passing weight are key coaching points in this one. 🔥⚽️

🔥Defend the Zones | 60-P2
Let's challenge and refine our players' defensive capabilities and decision-making in possession with this targeted practice. In this 3 v 3 + 2 setup, the team in possession must combine with floaters to receive the ball in either the wide zones ( 1 Goal ) or the end zone ( 3 goals ). If the defenders win the ball, they become the possession team. Defenders need to be sharp, potentially having to sacrifice one goal to stop the opponent from getting 3! After the set period, the team with the most goals wins. 💪⚽️

🔥 The Activation Square | Warm Up ( WU-32 )
We kickoff this week with a warm-up designed to prime players for the upcoming session, focusing on elevating their dribbling and passing skills. Players will dribble forward to the central square, leave the ball, run anticlockwise to collect another ball and pass it back to the next player in line. To elevate this warm-up, incorporate 1-2 combinations with middle players, increasing the amount of passes played, and to ensure our players remain alert. 🙌⚽️

🎉 Transitional Rondo | 88-P5
This transitional rondo focuses on pressing to regain, maintaining possession and exploiting numerical overloads. We have three zones, each with different overload scenarios, with the primary goal for the team in possession to break lines and advance to the next zone. The central players are tasked with seamless combination play, aiming to advance the ball and ultimately connect with the designated floater in the third zone, earning them a goal. Let's refine our players pressing, possession, and tactical decision-making skills, fostering a well-rounded and adept team ready for the challenges on the field! 🔥⚽️

🔥 2 v 2 Pressing Game | 59-P9
Do your players need help to co-ordinate their pressing? This practice focuses on developing this aspect of the game using 2 v 2 scenarios. Defenders must wait until the ball enters their zone to press quickly, working together to force direction and make interceptions to finish in the mini goals. Once players have worked a few rounds, we can increase the intensity of the press by lowering the amount of passes needed to switch play. Let's get our players winning possession! 🔥⚽️
2 v 2 Pressing Game | 59-P9
🎉 Pass, Set and Move | 84-P5
Let's get our players activated with this excellent technical passing combination! Players will work through the sequence, playing sharp one and two touch passes, setting the ball for teammates and timing their movements to receive. Once players are getting into a good flow, we can introduce 1-2 combinations to increase the amount of passes in the sequence. 💪⚽️
Pass, Set and Move | 84-P5
⚽️ Dribbling & Finishing Circuit | 76-P2
This technical circuit focuses on developing dribbling, passing and finishing. Players will dribble between the poles, pass to team-mates and finally dribble through the cones and finish in a 1 v 1 with the GK. We have added a progression to incorporate 1-2's, increasing the amount of passes played in the circuit and increasing the need for concentration throughout the circuit. Let's develop strong technical foundations for our players! 🙌⚽️

🎉 1st Touch, Passing and Fitness | 84-P1
Developing strong technical foundations are key to improving our players overall game. This practice focuses on this, specifically looking at players 1st touch and passing & volleying accuracy. We setup by splitting players into groups of three, with one player from each group starting in the centre as the working player. Working at a high intensity in the central area and receiving with an open body shape to turn out quickly are key to excelling in this practice. 💪⚽️

⚽️ Build from the Back (433) | 28-P10
It's time to develop our teams confidence and ability to build play from the back in this phase of play practice. Our teams first objective is to beat the 1st line of the press and play into the floater who switches play into either wide zone. Attackers must then beat the defenders in the 2 v 2 using individual skill, quick combination play and teamwork to finish in the mini goals. Developing high quality press beating passing in the 1st phase of play can create great advantages for our team further up the field! 💪⚽️
