4v4+2 TRAINING ACTIVITY

This is a pretty simple possession focused activity that can be performed in smaller area with handball or bigger area’s with kicking. The main difference to these types of training activities is that it includes 2 neutral offensive players that simply stay on offense and assist whatever team is in possession. The neutrals can also...

4 SCHOOL FOOTY TRAINING ACTIVITIES I’VE USED THIS YEAR PART 4

There’s nothing I love more than coaches letting some little cats out of their bag in regards to tactics and coaching nous and Collingwood’s Craig McRae isn’t shy, or guarded, in a lot his press conferences. I watch every one of his and of course John Longmire (Swans supporter), and they could not be ore...

2 x 5v4 TRAINING ACTIVITY

Having seen a heap of local/amateur footy in my days, when the ball is in the backline then the mantra is pretty much get the ball out of there using as few players as possible with as much territory as possible. Now that’s not a bad ploy but I’d bet more times than not that...

4 SCHOOL FOOTY TRAINING ACTIVITIES I’VE USED THIS YEAR PART 3

Here’s another 4 training activities that I’ve used with my school team so far this season. Some of the activities are progressions of the same activity from the week/s prior and some train a specific aspect that we wanted to focus on from the previous week.

4 SCHOOL FOOTY TRAINING ACTIVITIES I’VE USED THIS YEAR PART 2

Here are the 4 training activities I used for training session #2 with my school footy group a few months ago, that builds off of session #1 posted last week. 1 of the secrets of building adaptable players is to present activities that are similar but not completely different so they get exposure to similar...

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING THEM 6/6 – FORWARD PRESS GAME

Once you get your head around implementing small sided games for most of your training time then it’s time to think about how you can build them around specific aspects of your game model. Like cone to cone skill drills, which doesn’t train skill, it trains technique, we tend to train team tactics, strategies and...

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING THEM 5/6 – 3v2 x 3

This game has a focus on decision making, holding the football and only taking 100% options (for the most part). One of the biggest issues in community football of pretty much every level is the wanting to go super-fast as much as possible and the age-old mantra of “your first option is always your best...

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING THEM 4/6 – NETBALL FOOTY

I love the zone set up of under 8’s footy and I believe it could, and probably should be, used in some shape or form in under 10’s or even 12’s footy, especially if we’re gonna roll with using full ground games for kids that can only kick 15m. This game uses zones similar to...

SMALL SIDED GAMES AND HOW ALL COACHES SHOULD BE DOING IT 3/6 – BUILD UP GAME

The 3rd small sided game in this series is a game built around maintaining possession. To maintain possession the ball carrier needs to wait until a suitable option comes up and for a good portion of this game, it will just be a matter of “taking your 8 (secs)” and this should present itself. For...
