Soccer: Movement before receiving the ball

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

DESCRIPTION

The red player (1) stands between the cones closest to the blue player.

When red player 1 is ready to receive the ball they move towards their marker before checking off the player and making a run to either the left, centre or right gate.

The blue player then plays the ball towards red player 1 who receives the ball and plays a one touch pass back.

The red players change roles when the defender intercepts the ball from the attacking player.

COACHING POINTS

Red players must move with power and determination.

Encourage movement towards other spots, not just back and forth, anything to shake off their defender and make themselves available for the pass.

To vary this drill the blue player can play a lofted pass that the red player has to control.
