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.

Defensive Pressure

Just thought of this one myself. We had some issues getting out of the back quickly enough, and I was looking at various transition games. This isn’t quite transition but might make a good first step. (And I forgot to add the ball to the illustration.)

  • grid maybe 20 x 15 with evenly spaced cones along the sideline
  • 3 v 2 (or similar; numbers are variable), each starting on opposite lines
  • defenders serve to attackers
  • attackers’ goal is to dribble across the opposite line
  • but they get a point for each sideline cone they pass (so, say, the full goal is worth 4)
  • should / hopefully focus on speed of attack and speed of defending / organizing because the attackers start scoring quickly
  • emphasize that attackers should not attack in straight lines only
  • defenders can attack the opposite goal if they win possession

Inter Milan Possession Game

[from @ultimateplayerHQ]

  • four squares, maybe 5 x 5 or 10 x 10 (depending on level), each with a mini-goal at the back and in a total 20 x 20 or 30 x 30 grid
  • each square has a player that is restricted to that square; these players work together to maintain possession
  • one player in the middle who has unrestricted movement; this player is trying to win possession
  • if / when the player in the middle wins possession, he attacks the nearest goal / square and tries to score
  • if he scores, he switches with that player [my addition]; if he does not, play resumes
  • progressions:
    • more defenders [great, I suspect, for working on 1st and 2nd defender]
    • limit touches
    • change spacing of zones

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

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
