Opposed Skill | Attacking Centrally (01-P1)

Updated: Nov 10

This possession football coaching practice takes place in a 20 and 30-yard area depending on the age group coached, we play a 3 v 3 plus targets changing to a 4 v 4 with a goal and GK at each end.

Players must combine with a central target player to score with a quick combination. The area has two central 5-yard zones where target players must play 1 or 2 touch combinations with the attacking team.


Key Coaching Points

Try to allow free play and recognise opportunities for the possession team to combine quickly with forward passes. If the opposition starts to protect target players, may need to enforce passing conditions (e.g. 10 passes a goal) to force defensive pressure. Be creative and think about other progressions that could be implemented using the STEP model, or ask players to create their own.



Progressions & Constraints | 1

Progress the soccer practice by allowing rotational movement between central target players, with a single player in each box for each team.


Progressions & Constraints | 2

Central players can drive out of the central square to initiate attacks quicker.
