Football: World Cup Headers

Love the site, it's a fantastic learning tool!
Ian

DESCRIPTION

Groups of 4 players are paired and stationed on the sides of the area as shown in the diagram. Each team takes on the identity of a World Cup Team.

The object of the game is to head the ball past the opposing team and over the opposing goal line. The player in possession serves the ball to his teammate to head towards the opposing goal line. The defending team must attempt to stop the ball from crossing their end line without using their hands. Once the ball has been stopped, the receiving player picks the ball up and serves the ball to his partner to repeat in the opposite direction.

If a team heads a ball straight back and scores, the team gets 2 points.

COACHING POINTS

To aim for the goal, turn your shoulders to face the target.

Head the ball down towards the corners.

Use diving headers for more power.
