Building From Back Tactical Midfield Rotation Advanced Midfielder Session – Details and Stages

The US SOCCER curriculum its best practices is followed. This methodology consists of 4 stages within our Building From Back Tactical Midfield Rotation Advanced Midfielder Session, focusing on progression throughout.

Every practice session starts with a light jog warm up and stretching. Players should look to play a small game of rondo when they are waiting on their team mates.

  • 5 minutes of light jog to activate our body muscles.
  • It is followed by 2 minutes of stretching.
  • Total: 7 minutes.

Building From Back Tactical Midfield Rotation Advanced Midfielder Session – Stage I – WARM UP

  • The group is split into 2 big groups, both repeating the drill left and right.
  • MAIN: our midfield triangle will focus on rotation and passing into space. We have 3 midfielders positioned in a triangle. All other players have a ball each and start from behind the gate. Players need to show good awareness running with the ball, before playing a quick one-two combination with one of the 3 midfielders. The midfielders will rotate after each pass. Once the midfielder bounces the ball back (1 or 2 touches), the players with the ball will run and pass at speed towards the half way line, where a team mate will run with the ball back to the starting gate.
  • PROGRESSION:
    • We play 3v0 in midfield where midfielders just rotate and play the 1-2 combination
    • Try to reach the advanced midfielder with a pass and one-two combination.
  • Total: 25-35 minutes.

  • We implement pressure from the opponent, direction to goal and transition from attack to defense.
  • The game is played with 4 players and a goalkeeper against 2 pressuring opponents. The defenders in possession play 2v1 in the lower half of the field, and 2v1 in midfield. The objective is to keep rotating midfielders when the pass is not available, until the right timing to play the penetrating pass.
  • PROGRESSION: add an extra third pressuring player in the lower half of the field. Goalkeeper and 2 defenders will try to connect with the midfielders. Preference would be to connect with the advanced midfielder now.
  • Total: 20-25 minutes.

  • PROGRESSION: limit touches for defenders and midfielders.
