🎉 Pass and Press Activation | Warm Up (WU-34)

It's time to activate your players passing and pressing with this simple warm up exercise. We have a central 4-yard square which players will pass between, playing on one touch, two touch and executing short 1-2 combinations. After passing across, players must sprint to press, forcing the player to take a good touch to avoid interceptions. We can increase the size of the square and work in the opposite direction to add variation to this simple but effective warm up. 🙌⚽️

Hi Stewart, 

A simple practice like this one can help a lot: https://app.touchtight.com/programs/the-defence-splitting-pass-individual-23-p15

I would maybe create a few square zones using cones at different distances as well which she must aim to get the ball to stop in there, helping with practicing well weighted passes. Excitement/rushing is usually also a factor when playing through balls/switches so staying calm is also a key factor in this.👌

🔥 Break Lines to Exploit Overloads | 47-P9

This practice focuses on developing teams ability to progress possession between the lines and exploit attacking overloads. Initially, two defenders aim to progress play into the second zone while screened by the opposition striker. Once the pass is made, one defender advances to create a 3 v 3 situation in the second zone. Upon passing into the final zone, the three players from the second zone move forward to create a 6 v 4 attacking overload, with the aim to finish. If the defending team gains possession in any zone, they must transfer the ball to their striker to earn a goal. Let's get our team progressing play with confidence! 🔥⚽️

🎉 Beat the Chaos to Switch | 50-P2

This practice emphasises enhancing players' awareness, first touch, and passing accuracy for our younger age groups. The goal is for outside players to link up with central teammates, who receive the ball, turn, and pass to their outside teammate. Central players must navigate around others in the zone, timing passes to prevent collisions. Once players are comfortable, we can introduce a rotation progression to keep them on their toes and moving throughout the practice. 🙌⚽️

⚽️ Midfield Shape to Stop Penetration (CDM) | 89-P7

In this CDM specific practice, we focus on building a solid midfield to block penetrating passes. The goal is for the two outside teams to pass the ball between each other, while the central team stays compact and aims to intercept. When the central team gains possession, they pass to the end player and switch out with the team that lost the ball. The midfield unit must communicate effectively, recognise moments to intercept and maintain compactness throughout! 💪⚽️
