Futsal Development Programme Review
Week Commencing: Monday 12th November 2018
Learning Block: Controlling Possession
Session Focus: Variation of passes through the middle of the court
Our Futsal group continues to impress & build on their great start to the programme for our players in age groups U7 - U11.
We moved into a new learning block of 'Controlling Possession' for our Futsal group as they experience a different learning syllabus to our Academy Centre.
WHAT: We delivered a session based on playing through the court within a 3v3 Chaos Game, and a game with 'bounce' players - the 'bounce' players were used to combine through the middle, as well as from wide areas.
HOW: We can 'play through the middle' via a pass and/or a dribble: -
The Pass - Can I spot the pass when the space is available? Can I punch it in with enough power to ensure it reaches the receiver? Can I use my inside, outside & laces to successfully pass?
The Dribble - If there's space ahead of me, can I dribble quickly before the space becomes unavailable? When I dribble, can I keep the ball within a good distance so it stays under control?
The Receiver - If/when I'm receiving, can I show a variety of different runs to receive the ball through the middle of the court?
WHY: Playing through the thirds in Futsal is so important for build-up play, being comfortable in possession & having the ability to create chances for your team, so a focus on playing through the middle of the court is important for our players to understand how we can achieve our goals.
Well done to our Players of the Week below who stood out within their groups.
This week our Controlling Possession continues with a Tactical session of 'Playing through the pivot player'.
Our U7 & U8 programme is currently full with a waiting list but we are accepting players for our Thursday session at Edgebarrow Sports Centre, 5.30pm - 6.45pm for U7s & U8s, as well as U9s - U11s.
