Advancing up the field W's and M's
Dimensions: 20x 30 Yard field separated into three even channels length ways. Teams of three players occupying a ‘lane’ each at either end
How to: One team of three must work the ball down the field creating a ‘W’ and ‘M’ shape.
If you numbered the lanes 1, 2 and 3 the passing sequence would be as follows:
Once the team reaches the other end, the team at that end can begin moving
See video for further instruction
Coaching Points: Pass the ball in front of the moving player to allow the receiver to continue the movement up the field.
Be aware of your team mates positions, don’t stray too far ahead or behind. Ensure an even flow to the move.
Take a touch to control the ball if necessary, a poor pass will disrupt the flow of the move
Progressions: A team sets off from either end at the same time, play through the oncoming team (pass the soccer ball in any order, no sequence)
