Areas of the Game Attacking Defending Transition Set Plays Goalkeeping

Forwards Interchange and Shoot 1

 

DRILL OBJECTIVE(S) DEVELOPING EFFECTIVE OFF-BALL MOVEMENT/INTERCHANGE FOR FORWARDS GOING TO GOAL
SHOOTING/REBOUNDING REPETITION 
PLAYERS 5+ PLAYERS, GOALKEEPER
SPACE 35m TO GOAL, INCLUDING CIRCLE
EQUIPMENT 10+ BALLS

EXPLANATION:

Stage 1 (diagram 1)
  • X1 makes a lateral pass across to X2. As this is happening, X3 and X4 arc and interchange positions.
  • X2 turns and passes into space forward to X3, who is running onto the ball.
  • X4 continues arcing run in and towards goal on the left side.
  • X3 receives the ball, enters circle and shoots.
  • X3 and X4 play out rebounds. 
Stage 2 (diagram 2)
  • X3 and X4 make the same runs, but this time X2 passes the ball to X4 who is arcing out towards the left side. X4 receives on the forehand side, turns forward and shoots when she enters the circle.
  • X3 continues forward run towards goal on the right.
  • X4 and X3 play out rebounds. 
Both Stages
  • *Mirror the drill: start on opposite side so passing and rotation goes in opposite direction.

COACHING POINTS:

  • X3 and X4 arc their runs to interchange on different vertical levels. This will challenge defenders who are marking and trying to switch off.
  • Timing of the interchange between X3 and X4 is important. The two players should watch the timing of the pass from X1 to X2, and time the interchange so that X3 is running on to the ball and continuing her movement forward. X3 should avoid getting into receiving position too early and having to slow down or stop. X2’s pass should  be in front of X3 to run onto.
  • When X3 receives the ball, first touch should be tight and move the ball vertically forward to give a good shooting angle. She should shoot as soon as she enters the circle. 

EVALUATION:

  • VISUAL CONNECTION/COMMUNICATION between the players. The interchanging forwards (X3 and X4 should be communicating visually to time their runs, and should also be connected with the passer X2, signaling for the ball and watching to see when X2 is ready to pass, so that timing is    correct.
  • Maintaining the attacking flow of play is important, so the speed of the players movement going to goal accelerates vertically.

PROGRESSION:

  • LTT: Same
  • TTC & TTW: Add a coach or defensive player in the defensive space between X3 and X4. This player can take away the pass to either one of them, so X2 has to choose the open pass.
