Quite often players can be fooled by the name Free Hit and waste these opportunities to score by blindly smashing the ball into the D. To eliminate this common mistake in your side this session works on creating space inside the D, drawing defenders out of position by moving to meet the pass or to create a diversion for the hit taker to make a self-pass.
To create new habits when it comes to free hits around the D, this session demonstrates to your players through drills and conditioned games, that they can create more space and time on the ball around the D by looking to create a receiving zone outside the D.
By running out to meet the pass the opposition's defenders will have to come further away from their goal. This will in turn create more space in the centre of the D for the pass to find a player moving into the centre and to have a shot on goal.
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.
