Improving lines of running from supporting players

Just like an elastic band the further you can stretch your opposition's defence, the weaker it becomes. To help your team stretch the other team's defence to breaking point this Sportplan Session focuses on Hands in Front for easy and fast offloading, Running lines of Support and Continuous Movement from all the off-the-ball players!

Ideally you always want your ball carrier to have options when running with the ball, after all it's a team game and regardless of how big, fast and strong your players are, they won't be able to get through the opposition's defence on their own.

To ensure your players have always got support on both sides you will need to get your players continuously moving to support the ball carrier and be in the right place at the right time, ready to receive the ball and exploit the space.

Starting with a couple of handling drills to warm your players hands we then progress onto working on your players' lines of support, initially with static defenders but gradually giving your defenders greater freedom to try and stop the attackers - making things a lot tougher for your attacking players!
