The Game Training Phase

Attacking Session 1 (Central Areas)

Warm-up: Passing Exercise (A 1)

Warm-up

Game -Training -Attacking -Model -Session -1-(central -areas )-1.-Warm -up -passing -exercise -(diagram -A)-Digram -1

Players in game positions as shown in diagram A

At least 2 players on positions #3, #4 and #10 (also possible on the other positions)

#6 checks off and asks for the ball; #3 passes to #6 and coaches “turn” (1)

#6 receives and turns (2) followed by a pass to #9 (3)

#9 bounces with ‘3rd man’ #10 (4) who shoots at goal (5)

Players move to the next positions: #3 to #6; #6 to #10; #10 to #9; #9 jogs back to position #3

At the beginning the shot must be aimed towards the hands of the goalkeeper who rolls the ball back to #9, who dribbles it back to the starting position (6).

Now repeat the same with #4 passing to #8, etc

Gradually increase the shooting power (it’s still warming-up!)

Variation

Game -Training -Attacking -Model -Session -1-(central -areas )-1.-Warm -up --passing -exercise -(diagram -A)-Digram -2

Introduce a variation (see diagram B)

Give #9 the option to bounce with #10 (4a/5a) or turn away and finish themselves (4b/5b)

Coaches focus points

Pass precision and pass direction (to proper foot; proper ball speed)

Tuning of actions

Anticipation & movement without ball

Verbal and non-verbal communication
