There's safety in numbers which is why this Sportplan session works on supporting the attack, making sure your players always have an outlet option when they're charging up the field into enemy territory!
To get your players practising their attacking moves this session opens with a 3 v 2 drill, designed to get your players making the right decisions so that they can make the most of the overload and get a shot on goal! From here on in the mini-games and attacking drills come thick and fast as your players work on the following attacking skills:
Don't let your attacks peter out without an attempt on goal - teach your players to support one another up front to create attacking overloads!
As the season beckons, make sure you?re fully aware of your strongest XI by putting them through their paces with numerous tests to really see who you are getting the most from.
Rolling out on your backhand side can be a risky play, exposing the ball more to the defender. However being able to effectively utilise it in games will develop you attacks, keeping them unpredictable and open up areas of the pitch you may not have discovered before.
Build the whole of your game upon having a rock solid defence. Work on defending 1-on-1 as well as a team unit, starting from the front. This session develops the whole teams reaction to losing the ball and working hard to win it back as soon as possible.
Your season starts now! You?ve been doing your fitness work but now it?s time to get a stick in your hands and start working on the basics with this session so that you?re sharp, polished and ready to hit the ground running when the first competitive game comes around.
