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.
Keep your players sharp and recap their passing, turning and ball control with this multi-skills session - finishing with two fun conditioned games
To coach and develop players understanding of how to attack and create goal scoring opportunities quickly. Provide technical detail around combinations and finishing to increase success rate.
Introduce goalkeepers to recovery lines and efficiency of movement across the goals. Check the GK is moving into line with the ball when making the save.
Make the most of the space on the field by getting your players into the mind-set of switching the play, rather than trying to hammer down the same congested channel each time.
"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
