Coach Butch Lauffer dedicates this DVD to 12 training games to improve overall team play. These practices are divided into four areas of development: Developing possession play, three player movements, attacking/defending practices and shooting and crossing. Possession play requires one more goal than players involved with each player receiving two touches. The 8 v 8 to targets is a game that helps attacking team to deal with teams that press defensively. Another group of games are three player movements. This game can be played 6 v 6, 7 v 7, 8 v 8 with a floater. This game teaches players to run in advance of the ball. The game of one touch forward-two touch back works on getting across the face of attacking players for the purpose of supporting and the development of penetrating runs and passing. The third phase of games comes from the attacking/defending areas. Working on 3 v 2 and 2 v 2 game situations creates improvement. Another game, the three zone games help improve playing in tight spaces and the timing of runs and forward passing. The final set of games are shooting and crossing. Coach Lauffer illustrates these games with practices footage. These 12 games are detailed such that any soccer coach can incorporate them to help improve team and individual play.
