Warm Up Passing with Touch Circle

Showed my players the video on my phone and had them figure out the pattern. They did well with the pattern and I suspect that much of that was because they figured it out on their own. I paused to talk to another coach and when I came back they showed me how they learned to reverse the direction in the flow of the circle.

Inside – Outside Passing Game

I would progress this where, initially time is given for the team’s to switch and then the switching has to be done on the fly.

Attacking with Depth

[from coachestrainingroom.com]

  • a 3 v 3 + 3 (or similar, based on numbers)
  • the 3 v 3 plays in the 18 to goal
  • the +3 start with the ball above the 18
  • the +3 pass to find seams for service or in the defense
  • the 3 v 3 move and attack from the entry pass of the +3
  • the 3 v 3 can pass back to the +3
  • the defense can’t defend the +3

Sigi Schmid – Developing Players Technically [SCCC 17] – Combination Play Warm-up

    • A series of progressions based on a Y-formation of cones
    • Passes should be made first touch if possible but two touch if necessary. Ok to take a touch to get the ball under control but shouldn’t take unnecessary touches.

This one begins with following the pass and moving the ball upfield.

This next one adds in a drop-off (#2) before moving the ball upfield.

This next one adds in further combinations, a bigger drop-off (#6) and a run and pass to space (#s 7 & 8).

And this last one removes the drop-off for instead a lateral pass (dropped off at an angle rather than a square pass) before the run and pass to space.

  • Body positioning is important: focus on being in position to deliver the next pass quickly and effectively without giving up positioning on the field – with #6 above, that run should be angled backwards rather than square not only to better set up the pass but also to allow the receiver to get back on defense if the pass is intercepted. If that pass is square, it becomes much more difficult for the receiver to get back on defense.
  • These can also be used for conditioning, seeing how many can be done in a given amount of time.
 

Chris Gbandi – Transition from Defending to Attacking – 2 v 2 + 3 v 3

  • 2 v 2 in a small box with defending team starting with the ball
  • When attacking team wins the ball in the box, it plays out of the box to its team on the outfield
  • The game is then live
  • Progression
  • Shift the square / 2 v 2 to a corner (rather than centered) and focus on switching the field as the team builds out of the back
