Football: Short Play

The 'My Stuff' feature is amazing! It's a coach's best friend!

DESCRIPTION

Station a target player inside the semi-circle at each end of the area. No outfield player is allowed in this area. Position 4 players on the outside of the area.

Play 3 v 3 inside the area. The team in possession must attempt to get the ball to their target player inside the semi-circle. Once a target player receives the ball, the team on the outside of the area replaces the team whose target player received the ball. All passes must be under head height. The shorter, narrow field ensures players must support at wide angles.

Progressions:
1. The team in possession may play the ball to any of the players on the outside of the area to receive a return pass.
2. All attacking players now have 1 touch only.

COACHING POINTS

  • Position at a good angle and distance to receive the ball.
  • Can a player be in a position which makes a forward pass possible?
  • Pass, then move to another support position.
