Plyometrics Exercise

This is similar the movement from cone to cone laterally conditioning that I’ve done but the close range, balance, and plyometric aspect is an interesting variation. There are other videos on her feed of doing something similar to the cone to cone and numbering them but including math to get to the number, e.g. instead of saying ‘1’, she said 5/5, all to increase cognitive ability / keeping up with speed of play.

Goalkeeper Training Aids

Some pretty cool tools from the Bologna team. Not sure they’re in the budget….

Not much I didn’t know here but good to have it in visual form.

 

Sometimes You Have To Just Give Up A Corner

RB Leipzig at Dortmund, 8-26-18

A reaction save, definitely, but the keeper gets enough hand on the ball that he could have parried it over the endline. He essentially serves that up for the goal.

Staying Light on your Feet

I, as I’m sure many coaches do, constantly am reminding my players about not being flat-footed, about staying light on their foot and keeping them moving. Saw this from the warm-ups of the Italy – San Marino game and thought it was a great illustration of what we mean when we tell players to stay light on their feet and to keep their feet moving. So many players misunderstand why we advocate for that but this video does a nice job illustrating how much more lively play is, even in the simplest of warm-ups, when they’re not flat-footed.

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
