Description

Start the session with a normal dynamic warm up and speed ladders as usual.

Principles of Attack: Penetration: Getting the ball behind opponents. The role of the 1st attacker achieved through shooting, passing, or dribbling. Depth: The organization behind and in front of the first attacker. Role of the 2nd attacker. Mobility: The attempt of attacking players to penetrate and unbalance the collective defending action. Width: The disposition of attackers across the field to stretch the collective defending action.

Attacking Roles: 1st Attacker: player with the ball. Must achieve penetration by making the best tactical decision based on the players technical capabilities. 2nd Attacker: Player in immediate support of 1st attacker. Positioned at proper distance/angle to ensure that 1 defender can’t restrict both players. Must attempt to combine with 1st attacker to gain penetration through bent runs, overlaps, double pass, wall pass, takeover, etc. OR create space for 1st attacker to dribble in 1v1 situation. 3rd Attacker: Attempts to unbalance the defense by making constructive runs to increase the attacking options, ideally to penetrate. This allows the possibility of the 3rd attacker to receive the ball OR creating space behind his run for another attacker to join in.

Technical Shooting Coaching Points: Mentality: 1. Aggressive Attitude. 2. Shoot at any opportunity. 3. Positive attitude about the outcome of the shot. Power: 1. Round and compact over the ball. 2. Horizontal Movement through the ball. 3. Stay down on ball with a steady head. 4. Strike through the center of the ball 5. Toe down, ankle locked, and strike with the laces. 6. Land on shooting foot. Placement: 1. Early decision on target. Where is the GK? 2. Support foot, hips, and knees all facing the target. 3. Strike before GK sets his feet.

General Tactics the attacking 3rd: Move-Recieve-Finish. Take risks. Run in to space with and with out the ball to create space for additional attackers to unbalance the defense. Forward and penetrating passes. Immediate support (depth in attack).
