Keeping players entertained when running a fitness session can be a challenge. However, players generally respond well if a ball is introduced which is why this special three drill session ensures your players are kept happy - with plenty of ball time - and that you, as coach, are also kept happy as your players work on their fitness levels!
We open with a demanding full pitch running drill. As half your team are sprinting, sidestepping and jogging around the pitch the other half are having a breather in the middle, working on their passing and receiving technique. After this we get your players into small groups to work on possession before finishing with a fun game of three team possession. To find out how this game works though you'll have to log in!
The simplicity of this three drill session is its strength. By using these 3 drills you can improve your players' aerobic capacity and also use a ball in the process to keep your players engaged as they improve their match fitness and sharpness.
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.
