Use this plan to develop attacking headers, long throws and flick ons inside the 16 yard box - helping your players score more important goals!

You don't need to be Peter Crouch to win headers and flick ons inside the 16 yard box, just look at Alan Shearer (1.83m), Tim Cahill (1.78m) and Paul Scholes (1.70m), all were fantastic headerers of the ball with a powerful leap and accurate technique.

To ensure your team jump with a spring to attack the ball and put away their chances, in this session we work on scoring in the box from wide angle deliveries - getting players to jockey, compete for the ball and get their head to the ball when it's in the danger area!

Starting with a pairs heading warm-up, we then get your players to practice jumping to win the ball in the air against their partner in a team competition. Try this session to improve your players offensive heading confidence, from throw ins and corners.
