Group Play 1

Attack then Defend. 1v1's to go to goal.

Player A- 1) Attacks on the dribble to finish (pass) into one of the two goals. 2) Player then defends player B (next player in line)

Player B- The drill starts over... Attack then defend.

Progression:

-Give the attacking player a time limit (5 sec to score a goal)

-Add a line for the player to finish behind (forces a longer pass and creates less time to go to goal)

-2v1(attack with two, shooter defends and other attacker returns to line.) 2v2 (attack with two, shooter must touch goal before defending, other attacked can defend right away)

Coaching Points:

Attacker- Attack the open space with a big touch and speed. Prepare to shift or freeze the defender and attack the opposite direction. Finish quick before defender recovers.

Defender- Force one way. Close down space and be strong in the tackle. (2v1 situations be patient, cut pass off and close down player with the ball)
