🔥 Switch Play & Back Post Deliveries | 83-P7

This practice takes place in a full half of the pitch, focusing on a pattern play to develop switches and back-post deliveries. Two groups execute set patterns, emphasising wide combinations and receiving in the half space for delivery. We can enhance this by introducing defenders, elevating the challenge for attackers. Emphasise accurate, well-weighted switches, realistic build-up movements, and quality back-post deliveries throughout. 🎉⚽️

🎯 Cone Throwing Target Range | WU-29

Developing the fun/social side of the game can be just as important as developing the technical/tactical side when building your team. This fun warm up is designed to do just that, while also focusing on players dribbling, awareness and finishing. Players will dribble through the "Target Range", looking to avoid the cones being thrown at them, and getting their team a point for each goal they score. After both teams have gone through the range, the team with the most points is declared the winner. The losing team will have to do a physical forfeit chosen by the winning team! ⚽️

🎉 Developing the Switch | 50-P7

In this practice, we prioritise the crucial skill of switching play to exploit space effectively. Players engage in short passing sequences before executing precise switches to our full backs in space out wide. Our full backs will receive on the run before switching play again to the opposite winger, getting them comfortable playing these passes for when the opportunities arise on game day. We have two progressions to this practice that focus on our wingers ability to receive and drive and 1 v 1 duels.🔥⚽️

It's time to develop penetrating passes to break the line and exploit overloads to finish in this functional practice. We setup a central grid where 3 players from each team are positioned. The objective is for the team in possession to move the opposition and create gaps to play penetrating passes through for their two attackers. If they are successful with this, the attackers must exploit the 2 v 1 overload and finish past the goalkeeper. High quality passing, off-the-ball movement to create angles to receive and increased ball speed when playing through are key coaching points in this one! 💪 ⚽️

⚽️ Switching the Point of the Attack | 83-P12

This advanced lead practice occurs on a full half of the pitch, focusing on developing switching the point of the attack and deliveries into the box for finishing. We will work one group at a time, refining short passing combinations before executing a long switch of play to the winger, who receives on the run and delivers into the box for our attackers to finish unopposed. We incorporate three progressions that introduce active defending in the box and out wide, modify central combinations, and apply opposition pressure in the build-up. 💪⚽️

🎉 Play Out from the Back | 28-P12

Let's take a look at a Technical Pattern of Play that can help improve our players ability when playing out from the back. Players will start on each of the cones, moving through the set pattern using one and two touch passes and following their passes to the next station. Once players are comfortable and are in a good flow, we can increase the challenge by adding 1-2 combinations throughout the sequence. Let's play out from the back with confidence! 💪⚽️
