This session is designed to get your players moving forward after they've made the pass, getting them to support the player on the ball and offer a passing outlet to continue the attack.
By teaching your players to not stand still after passing the ball up field they can effectively create the extra man on the attack. By having an extra option when running forward you'll give the opposition a tricky decision - do they go to the player on the ball or cover the space in case they pass to the support?
Benefits from this session:
So don't just stand still, make the run forward and create an extra passing outlet!
Get any shot off towards the back post, whether it?s a sweep or a push to put it on a plate for a deflection into the goal.
Give everyone on the team the confidence to take the ball under pressure, beat a player with their 1-on-1 skills, then move it on.
Baffle your opponents with the illusion of an extra man - coach your players to move positively with overlapping.
Don't stop moving! Speed up gameplay by working on your junior players' ability to pass and receive on the run!
Help your players spot defender's weaknesses, especially when the odds are stacked in their favour - and make the overload count!
