In this session we aim to highlight to your players that passing is the fastest option for progressing the ball up the pitch.
Designed with younger players in mind, this session gets your players moving the ball quickly up the pitch, communicating and working as a team.
What's in the Session?
Working in small groups throughout to promote communication and team-work we start with a wall pass warm-up, to get everyone moving and passing at speed before then moving on to a series of possession games! With more experienced players you can impose the 2 Second Rule from the start of this session - getting players to think ahead and plan where they can pass the ball before they receive the ball.
Encourage your players to work as a team and not dwell on the ball (2 second hockey) with this week's possession and passing session!
As the season beckons, make sure you?re fully aware of your strongest XI by putting them through their paces with numerous tests to really see who you are getting the most from.
Rolling out on your backhand side can be a risky play, exposing the ball more to the defender. However being able to effectively utilise it in games will develop you attacks, keeping them unpredictable and open up areas of the pitch you may not have discovered before.
Build the whole of your game upon having a rock solid defence. Work on defending 1-on-1 as well as a team unit, starting from the front. This session develops the whole teams reaction to losing the ball and working hard to win it back as soon as possible.
Your season starts now! You?ve been doing your fitness work but now it?s time to get a stick in your hands and start working on the basics with this session so that you?re sharp, polished and ready to hit the ground running when the first competitive game comes around.
