Help your players understand attacking using this effective, progressive approach.
This video for coaches demonstrates many of the off-season drills and practice games that Coach Betty Ann Kempf-Townsley uses at the collegiate level. The repetition and muscle memory that players accumulate and retain between seasons is a key factor to team success when facing real competition.
Let Coach Kempf-Townsley show you how to progressively build your training sessions step-by-step, from 1 v 1 training drills all the way up to 6v6 small-sided games. By using a combination of lecture, diagrams and practice footage, Coach Kempf-Townsley walks you through the process that will help your team employ an effective attack and keep your opponent on its heels.
Once Coach Kempf-Townsley shows you how to coach the attack using progression, a segment featuring crossing and finishing will help you teach your players how to make all that hard work pay-off. You will see ways to train your players to quickly cross from both flanks and then make the appropriate runs to maximize the chance that the play will end with a goal. The segment concludes with a quick and competitive scoring game that will make your players think about scoring every time they touch the ball.
In addition to the drills and small-side games, this DVD finishes with an excellent pre-game warm-up that you can use with your team to get them into an attacking mindset before the first whistle even blows.
