Soccer: Breakaway

Great drills and practices thank you. Have used to great success for...
Steve, Clayesmore Prep School

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.
