Todays FREE Drill: HorseShoe Attack

  nnnnnn This Drill Works on team attack, when the opposition have numbers back in defence.

This drill is designed only to reinforce 2 attacking principles. 1) that the team must keep width, and 2)every time they pass, they must make a run to the opposite side of the pitch, i.e Keep on the move through the middle.

Set up the drill as in the animation, with at least 1 player on each cone.

The ball should be moved around the " horseshoe" continuously for a set period of time.

The coach can change around where players have to run to once the pass is made.

The coach can add in a score call, where the ball must be played in to the inside player on the whistle, and players must work a score .
