Activity:

Attacking team is possessing to penetrate to other half of grid. Offside line applies.

If defending team wins ball, they play to two other players joining play in other grid --> trans ition.

Coaching Points:

~ Up-back-through (3rd man run) - weakside player makes run into space as ball is laid off

~ Spin off - Highest player spins off and runs into forward space; "Slingshot" (must pull back to create momentum to go forward)

50x30 grid on top of 18 yard box

3 teams of 5

5v5 in the middle of grid with extra players on outside ("in window") between two cones

Activity:

Team in possession must connect both wide players before going to goal.

Top of the 18 acts as offside line (defenders can't drop until ball has passed)

Coaching Points:

~ When to possess vs. when to penetrate and how that affects movement off ball

~ Forward runs when player on ball has time and space (supporting runs when they don't)

~ Once attacking, look for overloads (usually out wide)

~ Once in box either drive towards goal or (more likely) drive to endline and near post for cutback cross

~Combos to break through the defense --> create overloads somewhere

~ Get as deep as possible when crossing
