Dominate your opponents

Fast is a word I like to use when my teams are attacking. Do it with speed and watch the opposition shrink away from it. It makes life difficult for your opponents and helps your team to dominate when in possession of the ball.

It is a way of playing that I have coached for a number of years and it works really well with youth teams. My team works really hard to get on top of opponents and this way of playing really does help.

So how do you go about creating a team of fast attackers? Check out the sessions below and watch your team dominate opponents on match days.

First of all you need a good training session that will work as a warm up for the passing activities ahead. As its name suggests Fast passing moves is a great way to kick off any training session working on passing in tights spaces on the pitch.

Then you can break into my Five minute basics: pressure passing game to get players putting pressure on the ball and making it harder to be in control of the ball and pass with accuracy.

I always like to move into a small-sided game once I have got my players warmed up on the theme of the training session. Fast central attacks encourages understanding between players through timing of runs, weight of pass, and expectation of a team mate’s movement.

Finally to round the training session off play Fast feet to help your players to develop fast feet capable of accurate and effective one-touch passing. Using these games and activities will give your players a great workout in fast combination play.
