Leading – 4v4+1 #9

Objective – Teaching off ball players to lead for a pass

GameFocus/PrinciplesResetProgression
  1. 1/8th of a pitch
  2. 4 v 4 (+ 1 as a joker – who supports the possession team) ONLY if the team is sophisticated
  3. 5 sets of 2 cones 2m apart (goals)
    (1 set more than the team players)
  4. Players have to score by passing THROUGH the cones to a member of their team
  5. Each through cone pass = 1 point – 4 points = goal (use cones to mark goals)
    1. Communicate
    2. Run off the ball
    3. Pressure on the ball
    4. Low and mobile body position / good footwork
