This session is great for squads of all sizes, from 2 players up to 22 players, as we work on your players' in-step passing, first touch and their passing and moving technique.
Short passing is a fundamental skill which will help players to keep possession (the instep pass technique is often used too when placing a shot). For this reason it's important that all your players are able to pass accurately using this technique and then move into space to help their team keep the ball.
What's in the session?
To get your players passing accurately and moving into space we start with an on the ball familiarisation warm up and stretching exercise before then reviewing the technique with a pass through the gate practice. From here on in it's game time - with three small sided games designed to help your players put their passing to the test and practice keeping possession.
Develop the ability to sit back and soak up pressure by inviting pressure to turn the ball over and counter-attack at pace.
The best keepers in the world use their feet to make saves and to always be in the right position. Their agility and bounce comes from the timing and accuracy of their footwork. Work your keepers with this session.
Stay compact, stay disciplined and protect a lead by defending deep with this session.
Get your goalkeepers dealing with cutbacks by staying on their feet and anticipating the change of angle.
