Soccer: Attacking Soft Targets

Wow what a great website, I have found Sportplan an important tool...

DESCRIPTION

Create 5 x 5 yard squares in corners of the grid. Play 4 v 4.
The red team has possession of the ball. The object of the game is to play the ball into one of the two attacking boxes for a player to run into and control the ball with the sole of the foot. The play is conditioned to encourage one touch passing and switching play. The red team is attacking to the right side of the diagram.

COACHING POINTS

Disguise in passing.

Control and alter angle in 1 movement.

Attack at pace with and without ball.

Receive the ball side on so players can see the whole field.

Turn into the space away from the challenging defenders.

Play quickly.

Change the direction of play.

PROGRESSION

Attack diagonally opposite goals(top right and bottom left in the diagram). This will encourage players to switch the point of attack.
