Make more goal scoring opportunities by teaching your players to overlap to create the extra man.This style of play operates on the basis that any player can overlap and move taking the position of another one as they move forwards (or backwards). By using the overlap, you can give your team an advantage going forward by doubling up on the opposition. Using the overlap can use the width of the pitch more, and get those crosses being whipped into the box!

What's in the Session?

We start with two triangle passing exercises, to make sure your players are alert and ready to start. We then continue with some follow your pass drills - including a 3v1 running at goal practice to teach players to overlap and change positions.

Then it's time for the final 3 Team Rotation Game which rewards the team who can move the ball quickest and think fastest!
