Soccer Drill Demonstration

Description

Once the signal has been given between a player and the corner taker, the ball is then crossed into the box. Three players should be making runs into the box from the edge of the area, and attacking the ball, with a player also on the front post to attack or flick the ball on.

Coaching points

  • The deliverer or the corner should aim to deliver onto the 6 yard line away from the goalkeeper.
  • The player who gave the signal should run out of the box in order to be ready if the ball is cleared.
  • The player on edge of area near the corner taker should make a late run into the penalty spot for any rebounds or flick ons.

Your team can choose their own signal, as an example, the kicker can raise two hands to say they will aim for the back post, or one hand for the front post. 

Choose a system that works for your team and stick with it.
