OVERLOADS IN ATTACK
“Accuracy is important” • “Good first touch” • “Look where you are passing” • “Move to receive the pass”
Set up a 40 x 30 yards area with a server on one side, three teams of two in the middle, two goalkeepers and two crossing players in a 5-yard channel on the opposite side to the server.
To start, the middle team are the receives a ball from the server and attacks one of the other two teams. The attackers must combine to pass wide to the crossers.
The aim is for the attacking pair to get into a position to score from a return ball from the crossers – here the defenders are split leaving space in the middle for the attackers to exploit.
The defenders MUST stay tight or if they stand off the attacker a goal will result.
If the attackers score, they get to attack the team at the other end. If the defenders prevent a goal, they become the attacking team and attack the other end.
