Introducing the 9v9 game model.
A reminder, you can listen to an awesome podcast talking about a game model, here.
Here is a model for the 9v9 game.
|Attack||Defense||Transition to Attack||Transition to Defense|
|Dribble/keep the ball.||Stop the player dribbling.||Play forward||Immediate pressure on the ball|
|Pass to feet.||Steal passes.||If not, keep the ball||Recover to defend the goal|
|Create Overloads||Cover your teammates||Play into spaces||Compactness|
|Pass into Space||Set traps||Create overloads||Force mistakes|
As with the 7v7 model, use this as a foundation for training your players.
