Decision Making Passing Diamond – 1. ANIMATION


PLAYERS: 5+GK SPACE: INTENSITY: low/med
TIME: REPETITIONS: REST:

Basic passing function to work on decision making. 4 players shaped as a diamond and another player inside it. The action starts from one of the wide players, who plays the ball to n.4. Player n.4 plays it to player n.3, who bunces it back in the meantime that player n.5 makes the decision of which side of the cone going to. If player n.5 decides to move left, player n.4 will then need to play left and, as a consequence, player n.3 (inside the diamond) will need to turn right. Player n.5 will play the ball to player n.3, who will finish the action. It is important that the player inside the diamond is always facing player n.4 and turn around as soon as the long pass is played. We can make this passing rotation more complex and add more decision making elements using the wide players. Coaching points: body shape, passing intensity, turn technique, movement off the ball, come short to go long. REMEMBER that it will be more beneficial for our players if we focus on one or two coaching points rather than in all of them at the same time.

born in Barcelona and actually living in Glasgow. I used to play football in a small team in my city, and it was then when I had a knee injury and I started coaching at young ages, as well as getting my formation and my coaching badges not only about football (UEFA licences) but also about physical preparation. After coming back from injury I signed for CE Sabadell, where I played for one and a half years, but during the first week of training, I injured my other knee and I had to stop for a full year before coming back again. During that time I expanded my knowledge about the game, focusing on aspects like periodization (both tactical and conditional), planning, and methodology. I have experience coaching in both men's and women's football at both young and senior level. I currently coach the ladies first team of Rangers FC.
