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.
Reduce the turnovers and get your team working up the field by keeping possession and building attacks by selecting the right pass.
The ?modern way? is to play out from the back. To be able to do it successfully though, you need your defenders to be comfortable on the ball when looking to pass, dribble and scan the pitch.
Develop your defenders understanding of how to channel the attackers away from danger areas to slow down attacks and isolate the opposition players.
Teach all your players how to stand up and resist the temptation to dive in. Instead jockey players and wait for the right moment to make the interception!
Drum in the defensive roles and responsibilities of your players and make sure they understand what you want from them in order to win the ball back and turn defence into attack.
Create a resolution to develop your coaching confidence by seizing the opportunity to discover new drills, turn ideas into action and seek advice from the coaching community.
