A 1 to 1 session to develop running with the ball, 1v1 attacking moves and passing accuracy

Set Up

  • 15 mins
  • 1 player
  • 10 balls
  • 1 bib
  • 3 cones
  • 20 m x 20m area

Set-Up

  • Rebounder net set up 20 m from balls
  • Two cones set up in between rebounder net and starting point of balls
  • Player checks in to retrieve a new ball, dribbles past starting point towards rebounder net
  • Player executes a 1v1 attacking move at 2nd cone
  • Player plays pass against rebounder net and adjusts body to play a 1st time pass through the target gate

Key Coaching Points

  • Body shape side on to retrieve ball, get ball out from feet to run with ball at pace
  • Keep ball one step away to run at pace and maintain control
  • Change of pace/direction to execute 1v1 attacking move at 2nd cone
  • Quality passing: “Punch” ball into rebounder net to generate good pace on the ball and be aware of angle wish to receive ball at
  • Open body up to play 1st time pass through one of the target gates

Progressions

  • Work on both sides – alternative between playing right footed pass and left footed pass through target gates
  • Receive ball back, open body up and take one touch before playing pass through a target gate
  • Set additional guidelines for receiving ie take 1st touch on outside of foot
  • Turn rebounder net around and practice receiving balls in the air
