Progression

If your players master this game – or find it too hard – try adding a progression. But remember, learning takes time. So don't alter your activity too quickly or too much.   
To help, try using the STEP framework (Youth Sports Trust, 2002). This is a great way to keep things fun, engaging and appropriate. 

If you use this session with your team, let us know how you get on by posting in the England Football Community.
