Spatial Awareness Passing Game - Training Center Exclusive

Spatial Awareness Passing Game - Training Center Exclusive

With cones / mannequins for development in training for movement off the ball

The objective is this session is to improve movement off the ball by providing mannequins to act as opponents to fill important space.

Here you see so much one touch play that needs to be practiced with lots of one touch training (but in overloads to gain success initially). We focused on two touches and beyond but the ultimate way to practice this is one touch; but we are not ready to do that yet. It makes wonderful viewing and is a fantastic visual support tool for raising awareness.

Defensive Rotational Recovery Positions - Training Center Exclusive

Due to our attacking rotations players are often out of position defensively when we lose the ball. Here we show how players position to help each other and eventually work themselves back to their own natural positions on the team.

If they can learn this approach and understand how to cover for each other immediately this then really gives the team a wonderful means of attacking freedom and expression.
