Attacking and Defending with Small-Sided Games [Sam Snow from Champions Coaches Clinic 2015]

04 Aug
  • The bottom three games are pretty familiar, so I’ve included a details of the top one which is the most unique
  • Snow spent a lot of time focusing on hip positioning:
  • Playing out from the back, defenders need to be wide with hips angled up field to see and be able to receive the ball
  • Forwards’ positioning: don’t play between defenders but rather in front of them, which freezes them and forces them to account for the forwards
  • Collapsing on the ball a function of technical range: their sense of how much ground their passes can cover
  • Play to the high forward playing on the defender because it is easy for her to get open and receive the ball even when marked.
  • She can step out (at an angle) to receive or dummy a diagonal ball to an attacking wing
