Circuit for technical and coordination development
- 6 markers
- 4 silhouettes
- 8 poles
- 2 speed ladders
- Playing Area: 25x25 meters / 27x27 yd
- Players: at least 7
- Duration: 15 minutes
- Series: 4 of 3 minutes each with 1 minute of passive recovery inbetween
A mix of exercises that is useful to combine technical improvement and coordination
|Timing, Anticipation, Differentiation, Losing your marker, Pass, Triangle, Warm up|
Place the equipment as shown in the picture and place players next to the markers. Player A starts with the ball.
- To the coach's signal, player A passes the ball to B
- B gives it back to A and moves behind the silhouette to lose the marker
- A passes to B to close the one-two movement
- Player B passes to C and then moves behind the silhouette
- C gives the ball back to B to close the one-two movement
- At the end of the action between these 3 players, B verticalizes towards D
- D creates the same sequence with E and F but in the opposite direction (movements 7, 8, 9)
The player who verticalizes starts the coordination circuit with a slalom on the poles and then a run on the speed ladder; this player then goes to the opposite side of the pitch.
In order to perform this drill correctly, there should be at least 7 players.
During the first series players have two ball touches, but later on they have only one.
- Encourage players to perform the circuit at maximum intensity in spite of precision
- Players should be sinchronized with the ball
- Let the players choose the foot to use during passes
