Attacking Build up Play from the Back - Full Season Training Program - Elite Team Book

Full Season Training Program - Elite Team U15+ (Book)


Description - Extract from "Full Season Training Program - Elite Team Book"
There are 5 progressions to this pattern which are available in the FULL SEASON TRAINING PROGRAM U15+ BOOK. This pattern starts with 2 defenders, 1 midfielder and 2 forwards. Defender 1 plays out to midfielder who shows for the ball and then lays it off to defender 2. D2 plays up to the striker, the midfielder will turn to support the forward, and the striker will play back to the midfielder, who will play through to the winger for a shot on goal. The strikers should follow the shot to goal.

To develop build up from the back and attacking patterns

Coaching Points
1. All players should create space before receiving the ball
2. Player body shape is crucial, should be in a position to see as much as the field as possible. This promotes good player awareness.
3. Winger should mostly look to shoot inside the far post
4. Striker should always be in a position for a rebound opportunity.

See the book for more 4 more progressions.

Modern Soccer Coaching Tactical Book


Description - Extract from "Modern Soccer Coaching Tactical Book"
Three small goals are created at the top of the penalty area using cones. Three attackers keep possession while a forward positions himself behind one of the goals. The attacking team tries to pass the ball to the forward through the goal he is behind. The forward then lays the ball off to an attacking player who has made a run into the penalty area and take a shot on goal.
