Football: Attacking Soft Targets

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

DESCRIPTION

Create 5 x 5 yard squares in corners of the grid. Play 4 v 4.
The red team has possession of the ball. The object of the game is to play the ball into one of the two attacking boxes for a player to run into and control the ball with the sole of the foot. The play is conditioned to encourage one touch passing and switching play. The red team is attacking to the right side of the diagram.

COACHING POINTS

Control and alter angle in 1 movement.

Attack at pace with and without ball.

Turn into the space away from the challenging defenders.

Play quickly.

PROGRESSION

Attack diagonally opposite goals(top right and bottom left in the diagram). This will encourage players to switch the point of attack.
