Football: Heading Variations

The 'My Stuff' feature is amazing! It's a coach's best friend!
Thomas

DESCRIPTION

Working in pairs one player feeds whilst the other player is the returning player who heads the ball back to the feeder's hands.

However, the returning player must have their wits about them as they need to listen out to the feeder's call.

The feeder has three calls -

Feet, attacking and defensive.

Depending on the call the heading player must perform a different sort of header.

COACHING POINTS

What headers should do:

1. Feet - Head the ball to the feeder's feet, as if you were passing the ball to them.

2. Attacking - A strong attacking header, aimed at the feeder at chest height (for them to catch).

3. Defensive - The feeder should back track, ready to catch the headerer's clearance style header.
