Football Drill Demonstration

Description

Set up 4 meter wide channels along each sideline.

Play 3 vs 3 in the middle area (between the channels) with a goalkeeper at both ends. Station one player in each channel.

The object of the game is to get the ball to your wide player as quickly as possible. As soon as the wide player receives the ball they should sprint to the goal line and cross the ball in towards the goal to their team mates who are attacking the near and far posts.

Coaching points

Look to get the ball wide as quickly as possible.

Stagger the running of the attacking support players so as not to overshoot the cross.

The wide player must angle his body into the field of play as he crosses the ball.

Progression

When the wide player receives the ball, the nearest defender may enter the channel one disc behind where the ball crossed the line. The defender pursues the wide player down the channel.
