In this coaching course filmed exclusively for CV Academy, Sunderland foundation phase coach Finbarr Lynch takes a group of Under-10 players through a series of practices designed to develop their understanding of how and when to switch play.
The session, which Lynch takes alongside fellow foundation phase coach Ethan Wood, starts with a switch-box warm-up that introduces the theme of switching play. It then progresses into three practices that further develop the idea: a technical passing practice, a directional game and a small-sided game featuring neutral wide players to encourage frequent switches.
