Leading and coming forward drills

What drills do you do for leading in under 11s?
Asked using Sportplan Mobile App

Hi, it can be a common issue to get young players to come forward and move onto the ball. I have attached a simple drill that I think will help. 

Simple one feeder (blue) will stand in front of the rest of players who have formed a queue (red).  

One at a time the players waiting in the queue will come out at an angle to receive the ball.

The next person will go the opposite way to the player in front. 

To progress this drill you can have a static defender at the front of the queue, so the players have to get round them and ensure their angle is strong. 

You can then get the defender to begin to mark the attacker through their driving phase also, so they have to get in front to receive the ball - this can be progressive starting at around 50% to enhance the attackers success.

Hope this helps.

Move onto the ball
