3 traget player Front 4 of 4-3-3

1 goalie

Your team must make 3 passes before looking to play out to front 3. If you play target striker they must set to a player from the box to get the ball wide to winger. If you play winger we are looking for overlaps from players in the box to get ball delivered.

As many players can leave the box as soon as it is played to one of the front 3

Coaching Points:

Dispersal

Mobility (supporting runs, overlaps, front post back post cut back runs)

Looking for front players early

Crossing Game

Make 2 18 yard boxes as the playing area with 2 goals and 2 teams.

Outside the 18 yard sideline is the space for the edge players to play. They cannot move into the opponents outside area nor can they enter into the field of play.

The goal is simple, the ball must be played wide before a goal can be scored.

Players on the outside have 2 touches, players on the inside have as many as they like. Feel free to change up the rules depending on the need for the group.

Coaching points

#1. Look wide but don't force it wide, if it's not there, keep possession.

#2. Try not to use 2 touches on the outside, have your head up on the reception and see if you can one time it in or need the 2nd touch.

#3. The ball does not have to be crossed, sometimes it's better to find a set pass instead or simply to bring the ball back to keep possession

#4. Decide the weight and position of the pass, a cross does not have to be high or back post to be effective.

#5. Players in the field of play must time their runs according to the cross, don't be in the box waiting for the cross and then have no momentum to make a solid attack at net.
