Set Up: There are 9-12 players set up in the attacking third, starting at the cones.
Procedure: The Feeder begins play with a pass out to Player A (or B), and the defender releases with the Feeder’s first touch. Player A plays a square ball to Player B, and runs an overlap around him. From there, play continues 2 v 1 to goal. If the defender wins the ball, he can score in the two small goals set up just outside of the penalty area. Upon completion, The Feeder re-starts play with the next set of players.
- The Overlap.
- Attacking 1 v 1.
- Positive first touch.
- Add the takeover/heel pass combinations.
- Progress to 2 v 2.
- Cut in sharply on the heels of your teammate. Don’t run out too wide.
- Aggressively attack the defender with the dribble and commit him before passing off.
- Make positive first touches towards goal and improve your shooting angle.
