Attacking with Depth

[from coachestrainingroom.com]

  • a 3 v 3 + 3 (or similar, based on numbers)
  • the 3 v 3 plays in the 18 to goal
  • the +3 start with the ball above the 18
  • the +3 pass to find seams for service or in the defense
  • the 3 v 3 move and attack from the entry pass of the +3
  • the 3 v 3 can pass back to the +3
  • the defense can’t defend the +3

Chris Gbandi – Transition from Defending to Attacking – 2 v 2 + 3 v 3

  • 2 v 2 in a small box with defending team starting with the ball
  • When attacking team wins the ball in the box, it plays out of the box to its team on the outfield
  • The game is then live
  • Progression
  • Shift the square / 2 v 2 to a corner (rather than centered) and focus on switching the field as the team builds out of the back

Chris Gbandi – Transition from Defending to Attacking [SCCC 17] – 6 v 3 Transfer Box

  • Pretty small space, maybe 15 wide by 30 deep (the half where they begin)
  • The three try to dispossess the six, and, when they do, pass to their teammates in the other zone
  • Three then of the dispossessed team shift into the other zone and play continues

I would probably add a conditioning piece for the three not passing, plus it makes the transition potentially more difficult, but otherwise interesting.

 

Defending in a Box

[from coachestrainingroom.com]

I’ve done a variation of this, I think with a circle and with more players (and maybe as keeper practice), but I like how this isolates the defender and forces the defender to move and think.
