Do your team struggle going forward, with attacks grinding to a halt?
Often the reason for this is a lack of positive runs and poor body shape when receiving the ball - this then makes it easy for defenders to close down your players and extinguish your team's attack.
To help your team keep the attacking fire burning, this week's session gets your players to open up their body, sharpen their first touch and escape the other team's defenders with angled runs. We'll also improve your side's ability to pass the ball through the thirds (from defence, to midfield into the attack), and improve your player's movement.
What's in the Session?
We start off with simple pass and follow drills, to get your players moving and passing accurately. Introduce some speed into the drills by getting your players to sprint in between passing to their team-mates, before then finishing off with small sided games to put their passing into practice!
6 conditioned games with purpose, guaranteed to bring a smile to your players' faces and improve key areas of their game including possession, communication and attack.
Keep the attacking fire burning and get your players opening up their body, thinking about their first touch and angling their runs up field
Does your attack run out of momentum due to a lack of support from other players? If so practice the overlap to create more scoring opportunities.
Handle the forwards movement by recognising the forwards patterns and by reading the play to anticipate where the pass and run might go to be able to prevent it.
