HotBox Receiving to Goal

 

DRILL OBJECTIVE(S) IMPROVE TECHNIQUE IN THE "POCKET" OR CENTER OF FIELD
CONTROL OF FIRST TOUCH, TURNING UNDER PRESSURE TO GET BALL IN GOOD POSITION TO FIND POSITIVE PASS 
PLAYERS 6+ PLAYERS
SPACE 10m x 20m SPACE (GOAL OPTION)
EQUIPMENT 10+ BALLS, 4+ CONES, (GOAL OPTIONAL)

EXPLANATION:

  • X1 starts with the ball and moves laterally looking for forward pass to X2
  • X2 works to get open in the “Box”, while coach applies passive defensive pressure, directlng play
  • X2 receives and controls, and moves to space. She either makes a pass to X3 or X4, OR can carry the ball out of the Box under control.
  • X3 and X4 move to get open to receive pass on outside of box.
  • Defenders (O’s) move on the perimeter to try to stop X2 carrying the ball out of the box, and prevent a pass from X2 to X3 or X4.
  • OPTIONAL: once successfully outside the box, X’s can go to goal.

COACHING POINTS:

  • X2 moves to the back of the Box to create space to lead back into.
  • Timing of pass/reception - X2 should be moving when she receives, not waiting for the ball. Stress good communication between X2 (receiver) and X1 (passer).
  • X2 must control ball immediately under pressure and get ball out in front (away from coach/defender). X2 gets eyes up to find next pass.

EVALUATION:

  • Is X2 able to create space to receive and find the next pass? Can she control and protect the ball effectively?
  • X2 should be aware of the pressure (coach’s position) and move under control away from it.
  • Can X’s connect with passes/dribbling to get the ball out of the box 50% of the time under passive pressure from Coach? (If not, remove one of the O’s.)

PROGRESSION:

  • LTT: Take out Defenders and position players on the sides of box to pass to. As player receives, Coach calls out the name of the player who should receive the pass. (Can also call out a direction - eg Left/Right)
  • TTC: Replace coach with active defender, to force X2 to work hard and use body/angles to create space to receive. Increase space accordingly to make it easier to receive.
  • TTW: Increase size of Box, and use 2 receivers working off each other to get open against 2 defenders.
