Transition the moment your team moves from defense to offense can serve as a key attacking opportunity for your team.
In this live practice session, twotime NCAA champion Jay Martin starts with small, no pressure passing combinations and builds to functional tactical scenarios that put players in realistic, gamelike situations. He incorporates activities that allow players to score goals and includes exercises that foster competition, keeping the training session focused and fun.
Your players will practice threeman passing combinations that teach proper runs and timing of runs so athletes learn how to solve defensive pressure and transition forward quickly. Training in a numbers up, numbers down scenario puts your players in gamelike situations that allow for realistic counter attacking opportunities that can be solved with quick attacking combination play.
Training in no pressure and low pressure scenarios allows players to better understand passing patterns and encourages success.
In the 10v7 3 drill, the offensive team is in a numbersup situation that allows them to keep possession in the attacking half of the field. However, once the defending team wins the ball, they look to play to the plus 3 players and counter to goal quickly. There is no defensive pressure when this transition occurs, which allows for a greater chance of success. This drill incorporates all of the previous drills in the training session in a realistic scenario, creating offensive opportunities for both teams.
Progressing from no pressure passing patterns to full pressure gamelike scenarios, Coach Martin covers the technical and tactical aspects on how to best train your players to attack in transition. This is a great resource for any coach wanting to learn how to take advantage of transition opportunities.
