Diagonal Runs to allow Support Play

Rating: 4
from 26 members ratings

This session aims to get your players running diagonally. Not only will this pose problems for rigid back lines, as it draws players out of position, but it will also allow your player in possession to keep the momentum going forwards whilst allowing support players to catch up with play (as they can run straight up the pitch!)

Progressing forward up the pitch, using the self pass, your players will have two choices:

  1. They can even continue up the pitch, driving into the circle to have a shot on goal or
  2. they can play an overlap pass

Both options are covered in this week's session!

Use this session and develop diagonal driving runs in your team today!
