Pattern 3

Description: Pattern involving wingers, forward and passive defender. If winger recognizes space underneath forward, can look to play in to forward to have "bounce" back into their path. Based on how passive defender reacts winger has 2 potential options.

Coaching Points:

1) Weight of pass played into forward

2) Forward needs to make himself wide to protect ball

3) Winger must read defenders actions to make next decision

-if defender steps to winger, winger has option to play back to the forward who should open up after laying the ball off (1)

- if defender holds ground, winger has option to find opposite winger making diagonal run (2)

2) Winger needs to scan field before receiving

3) If forward loses his mark, winger has option to play him through to goal (1)

4) If forward does not lose mark, but pulls defender toward the ball; opposite winger needs to recognize space that opens and can attack that space to be put through to goal (2)

2) Players on and off ball must recognize space that opens by pulling defenders with ball and player movement.
