Defensive Pressure

Just thought of this one myself. We had some issues getting out of the back quickly enough, and I was looking at various transition games. This isn’t quite transition but might make a good first step. (And I forgot to add the ball to the illustration.)

  • grid maybe 20 x 15 with evenly spaced cones along the sideline
  • 3 v 2 (or similar; numbers are variable), each starting on opposite lines
  • defenders serve to attackers
  • attackers’ goal is to dribble across the opposite line
  • but they get a point for each sideline cone they pass (so, say, the full goal is worth 4)
  • should / hopefully focus on speed of attack and speed of defending / organizing because the attackers start scoring quickly
  • emphasize that attackers should not attack in straight lines only
  • defenders can attack the opposite goal if they win possession

One Touch Passing for Speed and Movement [from finesoccer.com]

This is one of the drills that boggles my mind (I can’t keep track of it, so how will my players), but one of my goals for this upcoming season is to push my players more to challenge their understanding of drills / the game, i.e. to take the time to teach them how to do drills like this. I wrote about this here with my U10 team, and I hope to transfer that to my JV team this fall.
