Off Loading - Keep the ball alive!
This is a session with a difference as we focus on good attacking, open play and keeping the ball alive by giving your players as much conditioned game time as possible, whilst also working on your players' Off Loading technique.
Recently when speaking to a coach who had returned from working in New Zealand he told me how he was told on a number of occasions that in general British players are very strong at drills but when it comes to game time they lack understanding on the pitch.
To put this right he designed this session to give his team as much game time as possible in training - only coaching weaknesses in his team's off-loading when players showed signs of needing a little extra technical help.
Don't worry if your squad's too small to field two teams to play on a full pitch, you can easily adapt this week's Sportplan session to suit smaller squads by moving onto a half pitch!
