That Spanish team of 2010 were the kings of tiki-taka. The speed and accuracy of passing and their movement made sure they always had at least one pass on.
To help your team join the tiki-taka revolution this plan practices a variety of ball retention skills, starting with individual skills and then building to keep the ball as a team.
What's in the Session?
We start with a pass and move game with a twist; your players use their hands to pass the ball!
Following this fun warm up game we then practice holding up the ball and shielding it from defenders. Through 1v1 practice we teach your players to have a good low body position, with knees bent and using their arms to feel where the defender is.
Work as a team with two group possession exercises, working on passing and moving to keep the ball, before finishing with a full pitch game, passing up the pitch with good possession play!
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.
