What does your average training session..?

What does your average training session look like.. in terms of time spent 1) warming up/fitness 2) drills to aid technique or hands-on coaching for specific areas you want to improve and 3) SSGs? I read somewhere to spend roughly equal amounts of time on each..

Mine is 10-15 warm up/fitness

45minutes on a specific area/areas e.g. shooting, passing, Just what I think we need to improve on

30 minute match at the end, but I mix the match up each week, e.g. play short pitch for passing and moving and bigger pitch for movement and staying use to are normal size pitches we play on for are matches.

I find this works for me, the team has improved massively over the past 2-3 years doing this.

mine is 30 mins warm up

tranisition play for  20 mins

soccer speed 10 mins

goal scoring 30 mins

game tatics 30 mins total 120 mins  

Hi guys, so Joe your split is roughly 1) 17% 2) 50% 3) 33%

and Ireland yours is                       1) 33% 2) 42% 3) 25%

(I've assumed soccer speed is fitness so added to 1) and game tactics is a match 3) which could be wrong).

I'm also interested to know how much time overall do you spend playing Small Sided Games (SSGs) in your sessions? I suppose SSGs could actually be used as part of the warm up, drills and 'end match' so cover  1-3 above.

ps. I've been looking on the internet at definitions of a SSGs and it seems to be team games starting at 3 v 3 going up to 9 v 9 (because 11 v 11 is a Big Sided Game!) but I'm not entirely sure!
