ACADEMY WINTER SESSION 1

WARM UP - CATCH YOUR MAN - (5 MINS)

BALL MASTERY - DRIBBLE BOX (10 MINS)

TECHNICAL SESSION - MOVEMENT TO RECEIVE (15 MINS)

COACHING NOTES: ENCOURAGE THEM TO BE TRAVELLING WHEN THE BALL TRAVELS AT ALL TIMES (IN & OUT OF POSSESSION) 

IN POSSESSION: CAN THEY FIND SPACE THROUGH GOOD MOVEMENT TO RECEIVE THE BALL, OUT OF POSSESSION: CAN TRAVEL TO PRESS THE BALL INDIVIDUALLY TO FORCE MISTAKES

PLAYER COMMUNICATION: TALKING, EYE CONTACT, HAND SIGNALS TO RECIEVE THE BALL.

SCANNING & RECEIVING TECHNICAL SESSION (25 Mins)

COACHING NOTES : NO CORNERS, DRIBBLE OR PASS IN, ROLE OUT FROM THE KEEPERS (NO LONG BALLS). MAIN RETURN IS WE WANT THE PLAYERS SCANNING BEFORE RECEIVING THE BALL.

PLAYER COMMUNICATION: TALKING, EYE CONTACT, HAND SIGNALS TO RECIEVE THE BALL.

CENTRAL MIDFIELDERS: ENCOURAGE THE MIDFIELDS TO USE THE PHRASE 'SWITCH' TO CREATE SPACE TO RECEIVE THE BALL WHEN THE BALL IS IN THE GOAL KEEPERS HANDS

PROGRESSION: REWARD TEAMS WITH GOALS FOR SCANNING, THIS COULD BE WHEN AT LEAST TWO PLAYERS HAVE SCANNED BEFORE RECEIVING THE BALL.
