Advanced Midfield and Forward Link Up Play

Dimensions: Set up a coaching area big enough to play a simple 3v3 possession small sided game inside. Place this area 30 yards from a goal. Two teams occupy the coaching area and two players wait in the space between the area and goal.

How to: One team starts in possession and looks to make 3 passes among their team mates. The other team attempts to win the ball back in a full pressure game. Once a team makes three complete passes they can pass the ball into the player outside the area. When this player receives the ball, one team mate can join the attack making a smaller 2v1 small sided game. The team in possession scores a point by successfully scoring on goal. Once play concludes the game re starts in the coaching area with the other team starting with the ball.

Coaching Points: Make quick accurate passes, remember to move off the ball to create space. The attacking player outside the area must create space away from their marker and try to hold the ball up to allow a player to support in attack. Move the ball quickly to take advantage of the numbers up situation.

Adaptations:¬†Once the 3rd pass is made and the ball is passed into the attacker, whoever made the pass out of the coaching area cannot join in the attack. It is the role of the other midfielders to effectively communicate and stay focused to support in attack. Add more players or create a numbers up situation in passing to create more successful attacks. Play first to 5 points of adjust the rules to suit your players’ needs.
