Exercise of the Month: Exercises to help maintain possession of the ball.
In this Exercise of the Month we will work on keeping possession of the ball. To promote this we will undertake an exercise in the middle of the pitch, where we will outline a space in which a 5x5 is played inside it. In the corners we will place four wildcard players, which will help the main objective of the exercise to be realised - namely to create numerical superiority on the part of the team that has the ball (5+4). What do we achieve with this? That situations are created where multiple passing options are available. How? By placing emphasis on the basic attacking principles we need to use to generate situations where we can evolve from one location to another area of play through supporting runs, supporting play, creating free spaces and changing direction.
