SESSION: playing through the thirds

    Former FA youth coach educator, Pete Trevivian, delivers a coaching session focusing on playing through the thirds of the pitch.

    Key objectives

    Players will develop their understanding of:

    • creating space to receive and play forward
    • scanning and awareness
    • combination play in midfield and attack
    • creative passing techniques
    • movement off the ball and supporting runs. 

    Technical practice


    Skill practice


    Game-related practice





    After you have watched this session, ask yourself the following questions:

    • How would you adapt or tweak the practice to make it appropriate to your own players?
    • What additional challenges could you set to make the practice easier or harder for individuals or your group?
