One of the principles of attack is to create mismatches, one such mismatch occurs between the number of attackers and defenders. It is vital that attacking players can take advantages of these overloads when they occur.
To ensure your players can create space by changing the focus of the attack in order to weaken the defence (and then capitalize on the mismatch) this session looks to develop:
- Handling (good continuity to move the ball)
- Speed and Vision (to run onto the ball to attack the space)
- PLUS Communication, Decision-Making and Timing
What's in the Session?
We kick off with a warm up and problem identification game of 7v7 to find out what we're working on (mismatches in attack). Following this we have four drills, designed to test your players' attacking skills. We then build the skills covered in this session back into the game with two final conditioned sevens games.
