Exercise Description

estrellaThe equipment is placed on the field as indicated in image number 1.

estrellaThe players are positioned on the field as indicated in image number 2.

estrellaWhen the instructor blows the whistle, the referee and the assistant referee begin to perform the exercise as indicated in the numerical sequence.

estrellaWhen the referee crosses the halfway line, the instructor makes another signal to the players with the whistle, so that they can start the action.

estrellaAn attacker passes the ball to a teammate, whilst another teammate comes back from an offside position. During the action, an attacker or a defender commits a foul. The distance from the referee can vary in each half of the field (closer / further).

estrellaOnce the action is finished, the referee and the assistant referee cool down for the indicated time and perform the same exercise in the opposite direction.

estrellaThe work with the assistant referees is carried out on both sides of the field and starts simultaneously, but only the assistant referee concerned takes part in the technical decisions.

Referee

Physical Area

The referee starts the exercise from cone nº 1 with a forward run (5 m) to cone nº 3. He turns to his left, continues with a forward run (5 m) to cone nº 2, and turns back. Then, he carries on with a forward run (10 m) to cone nº 4 and turns to his left with a forward run (5 m) to cone nº 3, where he turns to his right. He ends with a forward run towards the decision-making area, passing between the two cones on the halfway line.

Technical Area

The referee situates himself in a position that allows him to control the players, in order to identify the fouls committed.

Psychological Area

This is quite a demanding exercise (in terms of perceptive accuracy, number of players involved and the two tasks implied in it). Therefore, we do not deem it necessary to increase the level of difficulty. However, when the exercise is finished, the referee tells the technical instructor the reasons on which he has based his decision.

Assistant Referee

Physical Area

The assistant referee starts the exercise from cone nº 1 (5 m from the halfway line) with a forward run (5 m) to cone nº 3. He turns and heads towards cone nº 2 with a forward run (5 m), where he turns again and runs forward (5 m) to cone nº 4. He finishes with a forward run towards the decision-making area.

Technical Area

The assistant referee decides whether the player in the offside position becomes involved in active play. He also helps the referee to identify fouls committed by the other players.

Psychological Area

The assistant referee helps the referee and provides him with the necessary information to make the correct decision.

Players

Technical Area

In one half of the field an attacking player, positioned about 20 metres from the goal line and near the assistant referee’s working area, passes the ball to a teammate just as the referee is passing between the cones on the halfway line. At that very moment, another attacking player comes back from an offside position to join the action, whilst a player (attacker or defender) commits a foul.

In the other half a similar action occurs, although this time it takes place on the opposite side from the assistant referee.

Instructors

Physical Area

The instructor blows the whistle at 30 second intervals, coordinates the groups taking part in the exercise and controls the execution of the exercise technique.

Technical Area

The instructor positions himself in line with the penultimate defender, from where he can organise the players, analyse each situation and tell the referee and assistant referee his views regarding the decision taken.

Psychological Area

The instructor checks that the exercise is performed correctly. Where appropriate, he makes the relevant corrections.
