Description

AFC Ladies 1st team session. Attacking Play in final 3rd in 4-3-3 formation (Working with GKs, CAM, Striker and Wingers)

Coaching points/learning objectives for Attacking Players

  • Scanning (See triggers to begin movement and identify spaces)
  • Timing of runs, quick approach but set to strike upon arrival; quality of finishing (Technical points if needed)
  • Use of double movements i.e. Striker stepping back then running across CB or CAM running into box to move opponent deep then dropping off into space to strike
  • Intelligent runs to create space for others i.e. Striker dragging CBs to front post
  • Opposite winger holding position as long as possible to stretch defence horizontally (Opens gaps for team mates to exploit i.e. late arriving midfielder)
  • Anticipating rebounds!

     

    Coaching points/learning objectives for Goalkeeper

  • Realistic positions (vertically and horizontally) throughout practices (stepping up as ball distributed and dropping deeper as situation evolves)

  • Decision making- attack cross or drop deep? Decision made early and communicated effectively. Choice of technique punch/ catch/ parry
  • Technical efficiency in dealing with crosses, shots and distributing ball at varied distances
  • Transitional Movement after cross (to start attacking counter)
