The Sportplan Team
Thanks Sports Plan. Not sure what needs to be worked on as its my first season so its a bit of the unknown
With it currently being pre-season, a good think to look at would be improving/working on the fitness of your players.
At the start of any session, it is important to warm up to prevent injuries. Get the players jogging and stretching. Following on from this, you can look at working on fitness. I have attached a simple drill below which can help build up fitness while challenging the players. Ensure the players work hard in this drill and perhaps take note of those doing well and those that may need a little bit more help with their fitness.
After this, you can work on speed components, using simple exercises such as getting the players to sprint in between a set of cones and then jog back to the first cone.
At this point, you can bring a ball into proceedings, by getting the team to take part in small sided games and maybe introduce rules such as a maximum of three touches to keep the players alert.
As with any session, ensure the players warm down correctly at the end as this is always important.
Hope these help you and your team.

The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
