Working Together to Provide Options
This one is for the attackers; getting free, good ball handling, and being smart with their movements and passes will set them up well for their next game.
Straight from the go the warm up challenges attackers to evade defenders or deliberately draw defenders for another attacker to have free space. Then we challenge players' ball handling and coordination, by putting their catching under pressure. Encourage ball placement and the ability to receive the ball on extension with the next 2 practices.
Players need to be able to get free to receive a pass one-on-one by holding their space and using their movements and body positioning. Finally players should judge when to pass backwards if they don't have a clear pass. All of this adds up to your players being able to look for the best pass to make, get free and hold their space, place the ball well and receive under pressure.
