I ran this possession practice in the first session of this current season, jus after the warm-up phase.
The objective (among others) of this second season as U15 coach is to make the possession phase more concrete and effective and to try to reach the finishing phase many more times than the last season, when the volume of possession didn’t always lead to concrete scoring chances creation .
Since the first session we are trying to speed up the movement of the ball, to play vertical passes as soon as possible, and to attack the depth both through the center and from the flanks towards the opponent’s goal.
This simple possession practice, however, it coaches a very important principle of play to follow: 1 point is won by the team that allows all the players to touch the ball with the fewest number of passing / receiving possible.
Another important feature is that the possession phase of this practice has always a direction of play.
Last but not leats, to escape the marker and mobility are fundamental.
