Attacking Transition

Attacking from the Defensive Third

Assessment for Learning

Learning Objective: Attacking from the Defensive Third Outcomes: To understand how and when to counter attack quickly into wide areas. To recognise, analyse and assess areas of weakness and space in oppositions defensive third. To apply direct play forward on the counter where possible, as soon as possible. To understand when to deliver ball wide and in depth quickly, penetrating the oppositions back four. Success Criteria Key Factors to Consider I can..
Observation and Interception: Adjust, compact, shape up, press, be patient Regain as early as possible, secure, observe forward movement wide and high to disperse opposition Movement and Support: Create space to play forward, wide and high, stretch pitch long, disperse, stay in contention at all times, move as the ball moves, rotation in middle third. Angle and timing of runs to create and exploit space, how? Off shoulder of opposition, disciplined, recovery runs Support runs once ball has been played forward, timing, angle Decision Make: Be patient, assertive, communicate, when to play, to feet or in front to space, short or long? Speed of decision, Delivery: Selection and quality of pass, pace, direction, angle, switch play, tempo, penetrating attack behind the back four, accuracy, Receive: Angle and timing of runs to create and exploit space, secure

Decision Making
Coach the player in possession what do you see? What is happening? What are the options to keep play simple? Diagonal runs off the ball to create space, run and spin to confuse and disorganise Support from midfield: in front, behind or to the side Observation and Interception Movement and Support Decision Make Delivery Receive

GROW Key Questions
What are your SMARTER goals? What can you bring to the session that can support the sub principles? How will you know you will have achieve your goals?
Ho w can we regain possession early, deny them time and ball? How can you frustrate the opposition? How can you disperse opposition? How can you stay in contention? What does direct play look like? When will can you share the play and frustrate the opposition? When would you use direct play to counter attack from deep into your defensive third? Where is the trigger? How can you create space? Describe your movement, How? Where? When? Why? What is happening at the moment? How is the opposition reacting to direct play? How can you anticipate the trigger? Where is the support and where can you receive the ball forward? What are your options when you receive the ball? Who might be able to help? What would be the effect of this? What are the benefits? How can you overcome the pitfalls? Do we need more time to develop this? Were our goals too global? How can we set specific goals to ensure success? Can you create a checklist to summarise the key factors?

Coaching Notes (Delivery/ Coaching Approach)

Part 1: Setting the Scene Recap the learning from previous session/ game and discuss areas for development. Introduce topic, co-construct and clarify the learning . Goal set and discuss desired outcome depending on the theme. Outline the rules and conditions. Part 2: Foundation Stage Players have 10 mins to achieve goals set. Using the tactics board, the coach will step in and encourage the payers to discuss how they may improve their score. Is the tempo realistic and game specific? Part 3: Fundamental Stage: Players are encouraged to analyse and discuss areas of success using video and score on white board. How could reach their desired goals? Introduce more numbers and increase the pitch size to challenge players and encourage decision making. Reflect and further goal set as a team and personally. Part 4: The Beautiful Game Concepts and goals are applied through SSG or 11 v 11. Players are encouraged to reassess performance. Coach will step in to reinforce good practice and encourage critical thinking around the theme. Part 5: Revisit the Objectives Reflect and feedback on team and personal performance. Points round up. Coach feed forward , re-affirm players understanding and goal set for game / next training.

Regain Ball Possession through Early Pressure Objectives to pursue by the team: Take advantage of the element of surprise and apply limited touches where possible; to disorganise and play forward. Counter attack quickly, assessing areas of weakness and exploiting space in oppositions defensive third. Play direct, forward to player or space, on the counter where possible, assuring possession. Support wide and high with balance. Deliver balls with width and depth quickly, penetrating behind oppositions back four. Switch play to take advantage of weaker sides, with decoy running and movement to create and exploit space. Anticipate split runs off the ball to confuse the opposition where possible. Be patient and develop element of surprise. Ensure security in the event of breakdown, squeeze, slide up and press the ball to ensure attacking organisation can be established.

Sub Principles
Support 360 Degrees: Quick movement and rotation from midfield and fullbacks to combine with attackers and help players under pressure. Assertive Behaviour and Hungry: Tight, narrow and compact to wide and high early with numbers behind the ball and overload oppositions defense. Anchor of diamond / midfield looking for security behind the attack. Authentic Leadership: Persevere and determined to take ownership, and looking for rebounds from strikers and long range shots from midfields second phase of attack. Surprise: Sudden change of tempo to take on counter attacking positions , on the trigger as early as possible, including full backs and divert defenders attention, create confusion. Aspiration: Desire and willingness to win goal scoring opportunities and ensure the team is superior in numbers. Heart and Dedication: Resiliency to bounce back, team spirit, team work, team unity to exploit free space in width and depth. Self Awareness: Positivity, confidence and empowered. Provide decoy runs to create space, for a change in direction of attack.

Learning Styles to Support the Delivery and Coaching Approach

Essential Characteristics
Command All decisions made by the coach. Athletes do as they are told Whole group responds to one. Practice Most decisions made by the coach Athletes Make some decisions Practice time is set by the coach and assists with feedback Reciprocal Planned by coach, but athletes coach each other Work in pairs, one instructor, one as pupil Clear criteria, usually on card, responsibility transferred by athletes Self-check Planned by coach, executed by performer Performers check own performance Evaluation based on coachs planning Inclusion Planned by coach Individuals check their own performance, starting at their own level and progressing accordingly Guided Discovery Coach plans a target , and systematically leads athletes to discover it Questioning by the coach is intrinsic Selection of appropriate steps is critical involving redirection if needed Problem Solving Coach sets a challenge in groups. Players are encouraged to share ideas and stimulate thinking Players contribute to decision making at all stages Individual Athletes design the task and plan the programme Coach monitors and advises Learner Initiatives Coach in not involved Self-Coaching The learner is both coach and pupil

Command Conformity to a single standard of performance Efficiency in the use of time Safety and discipline Practice To improve a skill and help athletes to judge their level of performance Reciprocal To improve ability to observe, analyse, synthesise and listen To develop ability to provide feedback To heighten awareness of self and others Self-check To develop self-reliance in the performer Improve honesty and objectivity about the performance To heighten performers awareness of own limitations Inclusion To include all, and exclude none To accommodate individual differences To enter and advance at own level, learning to match aspiration with performance Guided Discovery To engage learners in a convergent process of relevant discovery To enhance problem solving abilities Problem Solving To enhance problem solving abilities To develop insights into the structure of the activity through search for solution, enhancing ability to verify solution and promote self confidence. Individual To encourage independent planning and evaluation under guidance To reveal the level of understanding and encourage persistence, resilience and self-confidence Learner Initiatives Coach in not involved until the evaluation stage Self-Coaching Work fully independently

Thinking Constantly:
What? How? Where? When? Why?

Bringing it all Together 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Use few words Avoid jargon Make sure everyone understands Use simple language Avoid criticism, stay positive Make feedback qualitative and quantitative 7. Select effective position 8. Use TGI and points system to support success 9. Give time and allow players to decision make 10. Step back from the group and empower the players 11. Be player centred 12. Use GROW questions to establish learning framework

What you need to say? How you can say it so that it is most effective ? Where you can best position yourself in relation to the group so that everyone gets the point, and understands expectations and goals set? When will you apply different teaching and learning tools to empower the players and engage their Habits of Mind? Why will you stop the session and give support, feedback and feed forward? Give a point system to indicate success, such as 8/10 or 2/10 rather than good or bad. This will give clarity to the quality of performance.
