Crossing whilst travelling (15 mins)

Crossing whilst travelling (15 Mins)

Player A dribbles down the line and crosses to player B and C

Players then move positions after each go i.e A to B, B to C and C to A

Start off unopposed then add a defender

Wide players can't deliver the ball or run inside until passed the markers. (Vary the markers for the player without the ball from wide to increase different movments)

Coaching points

Look up before you cross

Players decide who is running where before the ball is played so no collisions( Front post, middle, far post, edge of the area etc)

What type of cross? Hard and low ( Head over the ball, firm strike, laces) Floated ball ( Foot under "The equator" middle of the ball and lean back slightly)

How will the Att finish?

Movement in front or behind the defender? let the players decide and work out what is more succesful as the defender change.

Striving

Add another defender to put pressure on the crossing player.
