Drill #7 - Added a defender that
starts on post with the striker
Drill #8 - Added the first passer
dribbling at striker w defender striker clears to side, passer reads and either
finishes or slots to striker for finish
Coaching Point: Try asking players
what they need to do to solve a problem i.e. if defender doesnt move with
striker you must get close before slotting the ball to the striker.
Drill #9 - Moved to the starting
passer giving pass to striker. The striker holds ball. The striker can turn if the
defender is not tight or pass back to starting passer and roll away for a return pass
behind the defender.
Coaching Point: Encouraged the
striker to lay off well in front of the starting passer.
Drill #10 - 3v1 to goal: He
started with the striker and defender in front of each goal, Two players come from
opposite end. Start with a ball passed to the striker.
Drill #11 The keeper starts
by distributing a ball in back to one of 3 in a 3v1 in back ½ zone. After some
inter-passing among the 3, 2 move to other end zone and play the ball to their striker on
the other end. The striker holds, passes, or turns and finishes
Coaching Point: He likes to do this
in a 4v2 on each end.
Drill #12 - Moved to 4v2 on each
end. When the ball is put into play with to the 4 of a 4v2 on one end, the opposite end
changes to 2 strikers vs 2 defenders. You play to goal as before. The 2 from 4 in the zone
away from goal being attacked move forward when the ball is played into offensive ½ to
create a 4 v2 for finishing.
Drill #13 - Moved to the first 4v2
to take long shot and then strikers would work for the rebound
Coaching Points: The ideal distance
from goal to goal would be 40-45 yards. He emphasized the players should use a stutter
step into their shot.
Drill #14 - Had the 4s on
each end playing together so they could pass a 4 player on other end who lays back in to
long zone for a shot.
Drill #15 He positioned a
player near each post on the end line and made it 4v4 on field. The players near posts on
the end can help the four on offense in their end as walls. The end players rotated with a
group of 4 that were on the field after a score.
Drill #16 Same as previous
except the players must shoot on the next touch when the coach says "shot." If
the player fails to take shot they must drop and do 3 push ups.
Drill #17 - Finished with a 6v6
game that he organized into a 3-2-1 alignment.
