Attacking & Counter Attacking II

Attacking & Counter Attacking II

Practice Organisation

-Area 65x20 yds, divided into 4 zones (30x20; 5x20; 20x20; 10x20yrds), as illustrated

-1 set of goals at each end, set back 5yds from practice area.

-15 players (incl. GK), arranged 4 Defenders (3 in practice area 1 on side) & 9 attackers (who operate in 3’s), as shown in the diagram.

-An off-side line may be drawn, or practice operates with (or without) normal off-side rules applying.

-Practice starts with; 3A’s receive ball rolled-out by GK & attack single D in 1st zone.

-Progress is made to 2nd zone (which is safe for A’s), prior to attacking 3rd zone which contains 2 D’s

-Objective is to score in opposite goal.

-D’s avoid safe zone until they have won the ball back.

-If D’s win possession they counter-attack opposite goal adding 4th D from side, as additional support.

-D’s rotate positions after each phase of attack.

-Practice recommences from GK as previously described.

Detail

-Size of area can be adjusted according to age & ability of players.

-Use of safe zone as “Breathing space” for preparation and planning.

-Simple progressions for this practice are:

-- Deploy a striker in each free play zone that both teams (attacking or counter-attacking) can use to make a quick forward pass to initiate attack.

-- Start practice with 4 A’s & allow D’s to use the 4th player from the side.

-A’s elect to start practice with 2 players & if they score; goal counts as double.

Key Coaching points

-Control, passing and support play skiills needed to keep possession and break through defensive lines created by D’s.

-Change of pace and angle of attack according to pressure, varying tempo to suit situation (not always fast)

-Rotation of movement and quick play when appropriate, maintaining “security” behind (do not attack in a “flat wave”).

-Looking for opportunities to move ball forward with good quality, speed and precision.
