10 Coaching Evolution Coaches continue to evolve Coach must be Open Minded and Open to Change Develop a Team that is Adaptable 10 Presentation title in footer

11 What about developing a style of Play? Develop Players that are: Technically Proficient Tactically Aware Can Play as a Unit Physically Fit Flexible Mentally Astute 11 Presentation title in footer

12 How Can This Be Achieved?

13 Small Sided Games More Touches of the Ball More Physical Contact Less Space and Time Specific Match Fitness More Movement and Decision Making Perform Technical Skills under Pressure 13 Presentation title in footer

14 Small Sided Games Organising Pitches 45m 45m 45m 80-90m 80-90m 80-90m 14 Presentation title in footer

15 Small Sided Games Where the Coach Comes in: You can make up your own games (or borrow them!) Decide what pattern of play (Tactical Ploys) you want to develop Design games where players have to perform that concept Each game progressively becomes as near as possible to the full game situation This ensures that there is a High Degree of Transfer between Training and Games 15 Presentation title in footer

16 Small Sided Games Where the Coach Comes in: 1. The Size of the Playing Areas may have to be adjusted If the pitch is too big the game can lack intensity If The pitch is too small there is too little room to play in 2. Enjoyment if the session is far greater Players want to play games, not run drills Can see this every day in 2 nd Level School 3. Work on one tactic or pattern per session Too many tactics can be confusing 16 Presentation title in footer

17 Some Examples that I use

18 2 Tactical Ploys 1. Quick Movement of the Ball 3. Put the Opposition Under Pressure 18 Presentation title in footer

19 Quick Movement of the Ball Opposition are most vulnerable when possession is turned over Vital to move the ball quickly to the scoring zone Exploit their lack of dept/cover or balance 19 Presentation title in footer

20 Quick Movement of the Ball Key Points: When the ball has been won 1. Team Mates move quickly from the ball to create space and open angles 2. Finish each Attack with a shot for a score Ensure that the ball is kicked dead score otherwise you have turned over possession and now may be vulnerable! Here are 3 Sample Games that I use for this 20 Presentation title in footer

21 Game 1 End Zone: Pitch Set Up 5m 5m 80-90m 80-90m 80-90m 45m 45m 45m 21 Presentation title in footer

22 Game 1 End Zone: Pitch Set Up 5m 5m Play Across the Pitch Set up 2 End Zones instead of Goalposts (5m from Sidelines) 7-a-side 45m 80-90m 22 Presentation title in footer

23 Game 1 End Zone: Rules 5m 5m Playing Rules can be Adapted Once a team gains possession they have 10 seconds to get the ball over the opposition end zone If time runs out ball is turned over Coach counts down the time etc 80-90m 45m 23 Presentation title in footer

24 Game 2 11-a-side: Pitch Set Up 24 Presentation title in footer

25 Game 2 11-a-side: Pitch Set Up Full Pitch 11-a-side Rules Normal Playing Rules: but can be Adapted If a team wins possession in their own half of the field they have 5 passes to score If a team wins possession in the opposition half of the field they have 2 passes to score 25 Presentation title in footer

26 Game 3 9 Second Game: Pitch Set Up 26 Presentation title in footer

27 Game 3 9 Second Game: Pitch Set Up Full Pitch 15-a-side Rules Normal Playing Rules: but can be Adapted If a team wins possession they have 9 seconds to score If time runs out, possession is turned over 27 Presentation title in footer

28 Put the Opposition Under Pressure Immediately once possession is lost, space must be closed down to the opposition Needs very quick thinking players Player in possession must be closed down Reduce space at their disposal Force them into turning over 28 Presentation title in footer

29 Putting the Opposition Under Pressure Key Points: When the ball has been lost 1. Nearest player closes down the opponent in possession 2. Next nearest player provides support by covering the runner 3. Other players cover the space into which the ball may be played Here are 3 Sample Games that I use for this 29 Presentation title in footer

30 Game 1 Attackers and Defenders: Pitch Set Up 45m Defenders in groups of 3 at the 45m line Attackers in groups of 3 at the end line 1 Goalkeeper 30 Presentation title in footer

31 Game 1 Attackers and Defenders: Play 45m Defenders (45m line) sprint around blue cone Attackers (end line) sprint around red cone Attackers in possession and attempt to score a goal Attackers and Defenders swap places and roles 31 Presentation title in footer

32 Game 2 Pressure Pressure Pressure: Pitch Set Up 2 Goalkeepers Players in groups of 3 behind each goal 5 v 5 game 32 Presentation title in footer

33 Game 2 Pressure Pressure Pressure: Pitch Set Up On the whistle both teams advance from the end lines The team that scores, remain on the field and immediately become defenders The team that concedes is replaced by the next group 33 Presentation title in footer

34 Game 3 Heavenly Gates: Pitch Set Up 45m Normal Game of Backs and Forwards Put two Gates approx 50 60m from goal 10m in from sidelines 34 Presentation title in footer

35 Game 3 Heavenly Gates: Pitch Set Up 45m Attackers attempt to score as normal If defenders win possession they work the ball out through the gates and immediately become attackers Team that scores are rewarded with the next two possessions for a goal one one possession for a point 35 Presentation title in footer
