Week 6 plan.
Building the attack.
- Organization of the defensive line for the right pressing moments, and counter attacking.
- Trapping the opponent wide or forcing them into tight areas.
- Main session for a back 4 (YouTube).
- Main session for a back 3 (YouTube).
Purposeful possession from the back. The activity can start with a goal kick, but should also include the recycling of possession from open play (gk makes a save, for example). 5 minute reps will provide plenty of opportunity to build out.
Coaches preference on how the team builds up and attacks the end zone (width, centrally, dribbling, passing). Work on creating overloads as much as possible, and especially focusing on wide defenders (#2 and #3) being the goal scorers.
Defending both ways:
Recent weeks have been focused on how you want the team to defend, so use that in defending from the front to make the build out difficult.
Score after stealing the ball from the team building and get two goals. Score from a build out and get two goals. All other goals count for one.
1 – Attacking
How many times did we create space for the #2 and #3 to score?
2 – Defending
How many times did we make the opponent predictable and win the ball?
How many times did our supporting players steal the ball or force a mistake?
How many times did we steal the ball from an isolated opponent out wide?
