8 7.. One-two Explanation: The one-two, or wall pass, is a direct sequence of passes by two team-mates in an attempt to create a better position for a shot. In beach soccer the one-two is often initiated with a ick up over a short distance. () Drill : Player plays a one-two with Player (, ) and nishes (). He then assumes the position of Player, who rejoins the queue. The one-two should be practised on the sand and in the air.

12 7.6. Creating space Explanation: A player can create space for his team-mates by running off the ball and dragging his marker with him. The space thus created often presents team-mates with new opportunities for a pass or a shot. Drill : Player feeds Player () after the latter has moved to the ank from a central position (). Player passes to Player (), who runs towards goal () and nishes. Communication and the timing of the pass are very important in this drill. () () () () () The pass is faked.

() () () (6) () () 0 min. 0 min.

14 7.7. Blocking Explanation: Blocking is when a player places himself directly in the path of an opponent. This is done to present a team-mate on the ball with new opportunities to pass or shoot and make it more dif cult for the opposition to defend. () Drill : Player stands in front of Player with the ball at his feet and dribbles inside (). Player blocks the path of Player (). Player nishes (). () No foul (cf. Law ) by Player.

Law ) by Player Specify and practise different set piece moves () () () () Passive defenders simplify the drill. 0 min. 0 min.

16 7.8. Buildup from defence Explanation: Moves can be initiated with several passes inside a team's own zone. The aim is to keep possession of the ball and wait for the right moment to launch an attack. Owing to the high degree of dif culty of passing moves involving several players only very experienced and technically adept teams employ this method of buildup play. Drill : with the restriction that three players have to be in their own half at any one time. A maximum of one player is allowed to advance into the opposition half. This simpli es and encourages passing in the team's own half. Accurate passing Patience in launching attacks Attacks may not be launched until at least six passes have been completed Attacks may not be launched until every player in the team in possession has touched the ball at least once 0 min. 0 min.

17 7.8. Buildup from defence Drill : The defending team may have only one player in the zones closest to and furthest away from their own goal and two players in the middle zone. The team in possession is allowed to enter every zone. Accurate passing Patience in launching attacks 0 min. 0 min.

18 7.9. Shots from distance Explanation: Shots from a distance of more than 8 m, i.e. from a team's own half, are a common way of going for goal in beach soccer. When awarded a free-kick, even if it is some distance from the goal, players will usually go for goal direct as the opposition are not allowed to form a wall. Shots that bounce just in front of goal and then change direction pose a major threat. Drill : The players are divided into two equal groups. The goalkeeper plays the ball to Player (). Player controls it and shoots (). () 6 The ball should be controlled with the next move in mind, i.e. collected in such a way as to allow subsequent actions to be executed in the desired direction with no loss of time Shooting technique (cf..7) Every shot on target, ideally bouncing in front of goal Passive defender near the attacker Shooting with the left and right foot Shot must be taken as soon the ball has been controlled Run - m with the ball before shooting () 0 min. 0 min.

() () () () () 0 min. 0 min.

20 7.0. Zonal marking Explanation: Zonal marking is when every player in the defending team is allocated a speci c zone in which to mark an opponent. Responsibility for marking an opposition player passes to a team-mate as soon as the player exits the defender's zone. Zonal marking ensures that players are evenly spread and reduces the amount of running they need to do. However, it requires a certain degree of footballing intelligence and permanent communication between players. Defenders often have to adjust to a different opposition player and the risk of confusion in the marking of opponents is high. () Drill : The goalkeeper throws the ball to Player (). Player and attack the goal. Players and attempt to stop the attack and win the ball. Staying compact Exerting pressure on the player in possession When an opponent passes the ball to a team-mate, the idea is not to follow the ball but to hand over and provide backup (cf. 7.) Communication Same drill, but three against three. () () 0 min. 0 min.

21 7.0. Zonal marking Drill : with the restriction on both teams that two players have to be in their own half and two in the opposition half at any one time. Staying compact Exerting pressure on the player in possession When an opponent passes the ball to a team-mate, the idea is not to follow the ball but to hand over and provide backup (cf. 7.) Communication The team in possession is allowed to have one more player in the opposition half. 0 min. 0 min.

22 7.. Man marking Explanation: Man marking is a strategy in which players are assigned a speci c opponent to mark. Players concentrate solely on their allocated opponents. Man marking requires individual players to run much longer distances and there is a risk of an opponent dribbling past a player and taking out the entire defence. Rigorous man marking can, however, minimise the risk of opponents collecting a pass in space and going for goal. This is why teams normally use man marking close to their own goal. () Drill : The goalkeeper throws the ball to Player (). Player tries to score (), Player to prevent him from doing so. Exerting pressure on the opposition player right away (as far away from the goal as possible) Slowing down the attacker Showing the opponent on to his weaker foot Tackling without committing a foul (cf. Law ) Determination in the tackle () Increase/reduce the distance. 0 min. 0 min.

23 7.. Man marking Drill : In a ve-a-side game each player is assigned a speci c opponent to mark. Tackling without committing a foul (cf. Law ) Determination in the tackle Use a neutral player to give the team in possession a man over. 0 min. 0 min.

24 7.. Screening Explanation: When a player rushes forward to challenge an opponent with the ball, for example, he will often be protected by a team-mate who drops back a touch and moves slightly towards the middle. If the player is beaten by the opponent or has the ball played past him, the screening player assumes his defensive role. Drill : Two pairs play each other. The defenders attempt to take the ball off the attackers or shepherd them over the touchline. () () Communication between team-mates Pressure on the player on the ball and determination to win the tackle Staying compact When an opponent passes the ball to a team-mate, the idea is not to follow the ball but to hand over and provide backup Play one against two, two against three or three against three. 0 min. 0 min.

25 7.. Shepherding Explanation: By shepherding we mean forcing an opposition player with the ball into a less dangerous area of the pitch, i.e. into a position where it is less likely for him to score. Drill : One defender plays one attacker. The defender attempts to take the ball off the attacker or shepherd him over the touchline. Exerting pressure on the opposition player right away (as far away from the goal as possible) Slowing down the attacker Showing the opponent on to his weaker foot Tackling without committing a foul (cf. Law ) Determination in the tackle () () Play two against two or three against three. 0 min. 0 min.

26 7.. Shepherding Drill : The pitch is divided up into three zones. The defending team has one player in the attacking zone and one player in the defensive zone at all times. In the central zone there are always two players from the defending team. The team in possession is allowed to have a maximum of one more player in the individual zones at any one time. Exerting pressure on the opposition player right away Tackling without committing a foul (cf. Law ) Determination in the tackle 0 min. 0 min.

27 7.. Pressing Explanation: Pressing refers to the strategy of disrupting your opponents' buildup play in their own half. It involves exerting pressure on the player on the ball right away and attempting to prevent him from passing back to the goalkeeper. Drill : Player plays the ball to Player () and then challenges him. At the same time Player attempts to prevent a backpass being made to the goalkeeper. The aim of Players and (red) is to play the ball beyond the line of cones. Players, and (blue) try to gain possession and score. Putting the player on the ball under pressure right away Preventing a backpass to the goalkeeper Determination to win the ball Four against three Four against four () () () 0 min. 0 min.

28 7.. Pressing Drill : In a game with no restrictions a goal counts double if it is scored after the ball is won in the opposition half. Putting the player on the ball under pressure right away Preventing a backpass to the goalkeeper Determination to win the ball Three against three. 0 min. 0 min.
