Progression 1 (10 mins)

Organization and rotation as before

Instructions:

Defender now also provides passive pressure on 3rd attacker (target player).

If attackers break through blue line, they are safe, and defender cannot recover.

Coaching Points (Target player):

Reading pressure from defender, and determining whether to lure defender in with multiple touches, or play pass first time to penetrate lines of defense.

Playing pass to support players far foot to allow them the option to drive forward if necessary.

Use of outside of foot for disguise, and to speed up combination.

Use of support player as decoy, and recognizing when lane is open to drive through without them.

Coaching Points (Support Player):

Supporting the target player at an angle to offer support, whilst keeping lane open for target player to dribble through.

Distance of support as determined by pressure. High pressure = support close, low pressure = drop off and maximize distance.

Open body shape to receive on far foot, and read pressure in behind.
