In this coaching course filmed exclusively for CV Academy, Norwich City lead foundation phase coach Scott Allison takes his players through a series of three practices with a shared theme of counter-attacking.
The session starts with the group splitting into four smaller groups, with Allison leading a mini-group of three players through a drill designed to develop each according to their own individual learning plan. The group then comes back together to play in a 5v5 (plus goalkeepers) counter-attacking wave game, before progressing into a small-sided game based on an identical set-up but without the conditions imposed in the previous practice.
The session offers a great insight into the way the Norwich City Academy structures its coaching for the younger age group. It is the first of three full sessions filmed for CV Academy; youth development and professional development phase courses will follow.
