Good drills for attacking and defending corners and crossing?

What are good drills to teach corners and/or crossing. Attacking and defending?

Hi Scott,

Ok - the best thing to do is try the search bar. This should be at the top of the page - this will find you drills, answered coach's questions and lesson plans. There is also a whole category dedicated to crossing which I believe you will find helpful.

I've added a sample drill to show you the kind of thing you will find in the crossing and finishing drills category.

Best of luck

1-2 and cross

Description:

Set up as shown.

Player 1 starts with the ball in the middle of the field and plays a 1-2 pass with player 2 before passing out wide to player 3.

At this point, players 1 and 2 run towards the penalty area, ready to receive a cross, while one of the defenders goes out wide to put pressure on the crosser.

Player 3 will cross the ball into the box where players 1 and 2 will try to beat the defender to it and score.


Coaching Points:

Look for good quality of passing, drill should be done at match pace.

Get defenders to put pressure on attackers, both in the box and when crossing, looking for good quality crossing under pressure, which wingers will be put under in real games.
