Train effectively with just a few players

When there are no games, the training priorities for different age groups are different: due to the holidays, younger players train certain techniques in small groups or compete in one-sided games, while the older ones work on their condition and tactics in the pre-season. In the current issue online training we have assembled the appropriate units for different circumstances.

More than 20 teams deal with different types of squeezing the ball to get possession of the ball. This should be possible thanks to the great willingness to run and the tightness of the team. Youth A is about the speed with which they want to rise to the next level. Youth B teams prepare for the season in small groups. In intense forms of play, they set up hidden endurance incentives to give players a good foundation for the first “real” training sessions of the season. Youth C teams are also making effective use of the holiday season: The present training session is an example that is easy to organize and can be adapted to different group sizes. Games and fun guaranteed!

For all other age groups, small group holiday training is also included in the program. First of all, the emphasis is on improving the individual technical skills of players. Juniors E and D devote themselves to dribbling, the youths in F and Bambini train the full range of basic techniques in small forms of the game. There, children quickly experience various ball actions and success stories that encourage their sports development. The motto of small game forms is: experience before result. In the story of Bambini, children play chickens on the farm.

Today’s training session focuses on small group training, which can be offered especially during the holiday seasons.

The presented small forms of play are not only fun, but also create hidden endurance stimuli characteristic of football.

Juniors C:
Many trainers are faced with the decision whether to stop training completely during the holidays, or to offer training in small groups to people who have stayed at home. If there is a small corner at the sports facility, the answer should not be difficult to find. Competitors are waiting for a training offer – even in the smallest groups.

Juniors D:
Holidays are finally here and finally possible, a relatively carefree holiday. However, hardly any gamer will be on a family vacation for six weeks. So what to do on days when you’re almost home alone? Training would be great! Training makes sense even in small groups of four to six players. Pick a technique like dribbling here and focus on training it.

E-Juniors:
