Crossing and Finishing Progression:

1) A takes diagonal touch towards mannequin and does 1v1 move (cut under, scissor, or hop) around it and finishes on goal. Then winger does 1v1 move (cut under, scissor, or hop) on mannequin takes a diagonal touch inside and plays a 45 degree ball. Switch lines after.

2) Switch side of service.

Coaching Points: Two groups and two goals may be needed if there are 12 or more. If it's too slow. What can you do to speed it up? How can you make it a competition? How can you involve decision making?

Progress 2v1.

A.1v1 Game - 20x10 grid

1 defender in each half. Offensive players on each end driving and trying to beat the first defender and the next one. If they lose the ball at any point, they then become the defender. And defender goes to back of attacking line.

B. Same set up as A but now it's 2v1 in each half. If the two lose it at some point they become the defenders.

Scoring: Attackers get one point if they successfully beat the defenders. This game should be rapid fire.

Coaching points: 1v1, drive at defender, have low athletic stance and try unbalancing the defender. for 2v1's decision making is key. If they have space, what should they do? if defender closes in what should they do?

Coaching points: *****LET THEM PLAY!!!! DONT STOP IT EVERY TWO SECONDS AND DONT OVER COACH. LET THEM PLAY AND MAKE ONE OR TWO FREEZES. COACH IN THE FLOW AND IN NATURAL STOPPAGES!!!!!!

#1: Role of the Goal Keeper: keepers should learn how to support the back line in possession, how to distribute and be the first line of attack instead of just punt the ball long. Keepers need to learn to pass the ball on goal kicks rather than just kick it long.

#4&5: Role of the Center Backs: The back line plays a vital role in possession. The defenders need to learn how to support the midfield in possession, how to make the field big and how to help relieve pressure. The defense also plays a crucial role in switching the point of attack.

#6 Role of the Defensive Midfield: the number 6 player dictates the rhythm of possession. He needs to learn how to support the attack from behind the ball.

#2&3 Role of the Wide Players: Players 2 & 3 provide width and penetration. They need to learn to stay wide and open body to the field and provide support to the midfielders.

#9 Role of the Center Forward: Player 9 provides depth and an outlet from high pressing opponents. She needs to learn to stretch the field and stay high and central and be available for the long pass option from the back.
