Layoff and Pressure 1 v 1
Dimensions: Start one line of attackers 30 yards from goal, with a cone 10 yards to one side of that cone, this cone is where one line of defenders will start with the soccer balls. 5 Yards away from the middle cone 30 yards from goal, place another cone (see animation for approximate placement of cones) Adjust any dimensions to suit player ability.
How to: One defender with a ball dribbles infield towards the attacker on the cone 30 yards from goal, when they get within a few yards of the attacker they leave the ball, once the ball has been left the attacker is free to collect the ball and attack the goal. The defender must run around the cone 5 yards away before they can compete for the ball. Once play has concluded, players switch lines
Coaching Points: Attackers must attack available space quickly, there may be a chance to get to within shooting range before the defender has had chance to close you down.
Cut your run across the line of the defenders run, using your body to separate the ball from the defender will slow the defender down giving you more time to pick your shot, also, running across a defender can draw them into a foul.
Stay composed under pressure, take your shot when it is available
