SKILLS TRAINING 1: FOOTBALL FUN

Back to football with the focus on many touches of the ball.
Our small sided games used during these sessions are design for maximum touches of the ball, lots of energy and fun. This vibrate approach engages the players quickly, gets them back into the game typically after a break, focusing on engaging not only the body but the mind.

SKILLS TRAINING 2: BALL MOVEMENT

Working on the process of ball movement to create a player in space ready to progress play.
Our small sided games used during these sessions are design to educate the players is  moving the ball in order to move opposition players and draw players in.  They also focus on a key skill and mindset of being comfortable with the ball in small spaces and then helping the player recognise the moment to penetrate.  Think of how a tennis player moves their opponent and then picks the moment to attempt the winner, the point is carefully constructed.  A similar concept is applied to football however players need to recognise the complexities of a team environment.

SKILLS TRAINING: GOALKEEPER

Goalkeepers provide positional and numerical superiority when playing in the back third.  So out goalkeeper sessions put equal emphasis on Playing without the ball (Shot stopping) and playing with the ball.  The former is more traditional role of the Goalkeeper and the later a more current approach to the art of goalkeeping and you will see this approach played out every week by the top teams and top leagues over the world.  This makes the GK role a lot more interesting and influential in the game.
We focus on working keepers to

  • Act of a deep lying pivot
  • Progress play by drawing the play forward
  • Support the players from behind – move up the pitch

And we teach them to stop shots….

SKILLS TRAINING 3: PROGRESSING THE PLAY

Working on facing forward and moving the ball forward to progress play.
Our small sided games used during these sessions focus on the killer pass, through ball movement the player is facing forward, in space and able to play between the lines.  Or the player is free and able to turn and open up, the player checks shoulder (space is behind them).  Or the player receives the ball and is in 1v1 situation.
