Attacking Patterns

Players need to recognize ball receiving opportunity, 3rd player running or drift/movement to freeze defender. Everyone has a role!

Timing of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd runs

Emphasize: diagonal run - straight ball, straight run - diagonal ball

Passing combinations - start with 9 in line with defenders and coming to the ball:

7/8/10/11 any combination to 9 (run/ball patterm critical for final pass)

7/8/9/11 any combination to 10 (run/ball pattern critical for final pass)

8/10 - 9 - 7/11 (7/11 make angle run - create space attack space - inbehind or in front depending on defender position)

8/10 - 7/11 - 9

8/10 - 9 - 10 - 9 (peels off)

8 - 9 - 7/11 - 10

Defending session

Red team is attacking green team 5v4 and attempst to score in any of the three goals. If goal is scored - green attack red 5v4 (1 red drops behind)

If green wins the ball - they must play in 5th player and then attack 5v4. Once the 5th player is played in - red must drop player out. If red can win ball back before 5th green is played in - they can continue attack. Play offside rule.

Coaching points for defending team:

pressure cover balance in defending line

If the ball is in wide position - 2nd cb drops behind line (think check mark - see diagram)

If ball is central - cover and support are one line.

Cover the channels to goals

When can you chase pressure/double team?
