Functional training is training for a specific position or area of the field (like forwards, outside midfield, etc). This type of training involves practicing the specific demands of a position or a role. This can be for an individual player, or for a unit (i.e. back line).
Phase of play training is designed to simulate a specific section of play within a real match. We train the understanding of the principles of play and tactical understanding.
This form of training focuses on a specific aspect of play (attacking down the flanks, counter-attacking, etc). It may be overloaded (e.g. 9vs8, 8vs7) and conditions placed on the other group to further create a good learning environment. Various start positions can also be employed to create the game scenario desired.
Below are examples of functional and phase of play training for forwards, mids, and defenders.
