Weekly session themes
Tactical: Playing out from the back
Example:Ball must start with the GK with two defenders splitting either side. Consider the triangle shape and where midfield/fullback’s are positioned.
Tactical: Playing through the 3rds
Example:How do we pass to break lines to attack? Consider angles and distances of passes. Emphasis on playing forward at every opportunity.
Tactical: How and when to counter attack Technical
Technical: Running with the ball
Example:Focus around playing quickly making use of the overload. Tempo should be fast with lots of goal scoring opportunities. Defending look at recovery runs from behind the ball.
Tactical: Defending from the front
Technical: 1v1 Defending
Example:Consider Shape, pressing to set traps, the 4D’s of defending. How fast can we win the ball back? What do we do next?
Tactical: Retain possession and re-build attacks
Example:Focus on staying on the ball as a team. How and when to change the point of attack. Team shape with triggers to receive. Not afraid to start again. Enjoy the ball.
Tactical: Lots of small sided games
