Last class we worked on our defensive play in soccer. Today we are working on offence. We'll start pinnies on defense, shirts on offence.
The red circles are offence, and the blue triangles are defense. Black line indicates where the ball is going while the red line indicates where the player is going
Okay, let's watch a soccer team use that offensive play during a game. Did you see how the midflieder cut behind the defender to score? Watch as the forward makes a touch pass to the midfielder. See how he didn't hold onto the ball?
Let's try it out!
Midfielder, cut sharper!
...after running through the drill a few times.
Good job everyone! Let's watch how we did and see if we executed the play properly! Did we move the ball quick enough? Did we make a sharp cut? Let's discuss how we can improve!
