Working with your players
Tactical Intentions? Are these clear and simple, avoid over complicating. Think , what do we intend to do when in possession – in transition – when out of possession
Look for functions & actions practiced earlier in session.
Fast Attack to finish
Immediate reaction to trans A>D
Two teams of 6 players work on the defending and attacking tactics and ideas they have worked on at practice. The coach can introduce offsides or not.
Get your attackers to try and pass forwards each time to get to goal quickly.
Things to look for:
Try to move the ball quickly, using a maximum of one or two touches.
Try to get players to use one touch passing and only to depend on a second touch when they have to control a poor pass.
When we make the pass between the lines to the attackers it should be a firm pass.
Players should learn when to control the ball and slow the play down and when to play one-touch to speed the play up.
Try to combine quickly off minimal touches
Create space to combine
Movement to lose and unbalance defenders in order to receive and combine with teammates
It is important to make sure when the players are attacking their body is positioned so they are balanced and facing the goal ready to receive and when shooting the supporting foot should be next to the ball and players should not be leaning back when they shoot.
Make the area bigger to make it easer or smaller to make it harder.
Also make a rule you cannot play back to the same player, one and two touch – if the player used 2 touches the next player can only use one.
