Exercise created to favor the transitions defense-attack and attack-defense, initiating the game from the initiation line of defenders, improving the ball conservation, the creation and occupation of free spaces.
In the middle of half field, we will make a square of 20x20m. Where we will work a ball conservation of 4×3, and we will take 4 defenses to work from the first line (Initiation line) playing the ball out of defence.
Exercise focused for 11 field players, plus 1 goalkeeper.
The goalkeeper initiates the play by passing to any of the 4 players and once they have given 2 or 3 passes to each other, they must introduce the ball in the square to their respective team and they will be placed around the square acting like jokers.
The rival team have 4 players, once they steal the ball, will automatically make a Defense – Attack transition, against the starting line of defenders until finish shooting to the goal. We will rotate the players so that everyone works the same.
We will insist to the players on accuracy of pass, wide in attack, and narrow in defense, in the creation and occupation of free spaces, swaps, coverages, and transitions (fast and effective).
(Time, space, number of players, etc … are indicative. They should be modified according to the resources we have depending on players availability)
|Total duration:||21′ min|
|Series duration:||10′ min|
|Breaks duration:||1′ min|
|Materials:||Cones, Balls, Bibs|
- Add more players in the transition, to increase the difficulty to the defensive line.
- Add jokers inside the square.
- Reduce square space to increase difficulty in conservation.
- Obligatory to move the ball from side to side, passing the outer jokers to encourage play in amplitude.
- In the transition, add a maximum time limit to be able to finish play.
- Place players, to work the pressing on playing the ball out of defence.
Skillful and non skillful leg:
Force everyone to use the less skillful leg. Play side to side, to force control with the farthest leg and work the less skilled.
Ball circulation. Improved control and pass. Conservation and support. Occupation of free spaces.
Close passing lines. Cover his back. Concept of narrow and short when we do not have ball.
Line of initiation, center back go to the vertices of the goalkeeper’s area, wide and deep sides (When the team is in possession of the ball). Without the ball line on alert, closing free spaces, awareness of possible coverages.
Ball conservation conservation. Search for the 3rd man. Rational spaces occupation. Concept of alternating play short, with play long. Loosing your mark. (Support and Rupture).
Correct hit technique of the ball. Good body shape orientation with and without ball. Dribbling and feints.
