Attacking the cross (20 mins)

Set up around the 18 yard box. Players start in pairs and work together to attack the cross,

Players must time the run adn watch the flight of the ball. Players should try to score on first or second touch max.

The coach should start the crosses and mix them up, back post and front post

Players that score continue to attempt at goal, if a pair miss they get to take the crosses and are eliminated. The pair that score the most goals win.

Progress by making those that miss turn in to defenders

Mix up the crosses with high bounce or hard and low across the box

Coaching points:

Be patient, watch the flight of the ball

Don't run before the ball is kicked

Eye on the ball

Timing is everything

Right body position
