ACADEMY SPRING SESSION 7

WARM UP - COMBINATION CIRCLE - (10 MINS)

Overview: Set up a 25 x 25 area with four players on the outside and four players on the inside. The players inside the middle have a ball each and have to perform the Football DNA ball mastery of ‘Sole Rolls, Side Rolls’ inside the middle of the circle. As the players are performing ball mastery, they then are look for a player on the outside to pass into to combine with. Players can choose from different combinations which include: Give & Go, Overlap and Underlap. Rotate the target players with the players inside the circle after one minute.

Coaching Points:  Keep Eyes Up, Movement, Receiving Skills, Combination Types

Progressions:
  • To progress this further you can add defenders in the middle for the attackers to try and combine around. If the defenders win the ball they then replace the attackers.
Regression:
  • To simplify this practise have no target players and the player must try and combine with one another inside the circle.
