There's many number of ways to lose your defender - everything from a sprint burst to a sharp change of direction or clever use of body angles - and the videos in this plan look at all of these to ensure that your attackers can get rid of one, or even two defenders, to receive the ball in space. We also put emphasis on the ball carrier to provide the right pass into space, with the correct weight, for the moving player.
Using the prelim drills and conditioned games in this plan will help your attackers to take on the defenders with conviction and without hesitation.
Help your players master the basic ball control skills to move onto executing more complex and advanced skills as players develop their knowledge and playing abilities.
Develop your players ability to close down space for the opposition to increase your team's chances of gaining possession of the ball.
Build upon your player's team cohesion, in particular focusing on their passing and communication skills to keep possession of the ball.
Develop your players understanding and use of fast, accurate footwork to make successful interceptions or force an error.
Build upon your players shooting technique and movement inside and outside the circle. Focus on getting your players to work together as a tight attacking unit to maximise chances on goal.
