Attacking in Offensive Half (10 mins)

Attacking in Offensive Half.

Start off with 7 Offensive players vs 3 + GK; Progress to adding 1 or 2 more defenders.If Defending team wins they dribble across one of the two wide goals. What should the offensive teams response be?

Coaching Points: Focus on team shape, spreading out to make field big, peeling off, receiving the ball in a sideways/half turned posture, being aware of team mates’ positions, interchanging positions to achieve penetration, overlapping wide players, bending runs, diagonal balls from the back line to blind side midfielders, and combination play.

Progress the activity by adding one more opponent who will close down the center backs when they get the ball. The added opponent can be placed around the dotted line in front of the central defenders as a starting point and he becomes activated when player 4 or 5 plays their first pass.
