Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Place 5 cones across the middle of the area, 10 yards in from each sideline. Play 4 vs 4.

The ball is not allowed to travel through or over the discs. The object of the game is to get the ball wide in the near side of the field and attack the flanks of the attacking area.

Although the ball is not allowed to travel over the discs, players may make runs over the discs.

Coaching points

Create space on the flanks by drawing defenders from the attacking space.

Diagonal runs, blind-side runs and overlapping runs should be encouraged to exploit space.

Supporting players must get forward to meet the crosses in to the prime scoring area.

Progression

Decrease the number and width of the discs in the area.

Players can pass the ball through the discs if they play a 1-2 combination to do so.
