Soccer: Breakaway

I can't get enough of Sportplan. It's given me back the enthusiasm...

DESCRIPTION

Set out three grids within the area according to the dimensions shown in the above diagram. Play 3 v 3 in the 30 x 40 yard grid.

The team in possession plays the ball around the central area. The goal of the game is to penetrate into the attacking area and finish a 1 on 1 with the goalkeeper. The goalkeeper must stay on the line until the attacker crosses the attacking line.

Progression: Allow a single defender to pursue the attacker to pressure or block the shot.

COACHING POINTS

  • Be composed. Try to get to a central position in front of the goal.
  • Assess the position of the goalkeeper before selecting the shooting target.
  • Use an early fake or body swerve to unsettle the goalkeeper and move him out of position.
  • If the goalkeeper comes out quickly, you can dribble around him.
  • If the keeper comes, then stops, you may be able to chip him.
  • If you choose to shoot, think about placing the ball past the keeper.
