The game

Blue server feeds a ball to the wingers (alternated)

Winger controls, sets, and delivers a cross into the 'second six yard box'.

Central strikers time their runs, and attempt a header on goal.

Key Factors

The Trigger (winger is about to cross):

> Start to move.

> One forward attack near, one far post.

> Keep your eyes on the ball.

Ball Travelling:

> Watch flight and judge best time to head.

> Start run, adjust body shape to attack.

> Be aware of goalkeepers position.

Arrival (ball in area):

> Attack the ball! (Get there first!). Be aggressive!

> Use core to generate power. Back/arms/neck.

> Hit the target, ideally heading downwards.

> Make contact above centre on ball, with forehead.
