Soccer: 1v1 Wave Drill

This is a great site. The days of scratching practice drills and back...
Andrew

DESCRIPTION

  • Two goals and two goalkeepers working.
  • Get the attackers into groups of three at each end behind the goal.
  • The GK starts with the ball and plays it out to the attackers at the opposite end.
  • The two or three attackers then advance at pace at the goalkeeper who threw the ball.
  • 3 touches as a team to score.
  • Then the opposite goalkeeper starts the drill and a wave of players come in from behind the opposite goal.

COACHING POINTS

  • To avoid attackers being too greedy, every team must take it in turns for the final player to have an attempt on goal- So each group of attackers should have 3 attempts to score before rotating the goalkeepers
  • If working with varied age groups, pair each team with an older and younger player and always have an older and younger player in goal- So the attacker running though is a similar age

PROGRESSION

  • Introduce two defenders who can only go into opposition half to create the space behind.  
  • Players can decide to play ball through or have a long range shot.
