2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year Marcus Wood delivers 10 fast-paced, game-like practice drills to improve your team's ability to score goals. These exercises will increase your players' speed of play and help them better understand their positioning and their role on the field in attacking situations.

These drills provide training for:

  • Transition - Teach your players to attack with a numbers advantage.
  • Crossing and Finishing - Train players to make quality runs and to frame the goal to improve your scoring chances.
  • Individual Attacking - Encourage your strikers to take on their defender and finish with a quick shot on goal.
  • Pattern Play - Choreograph options and patterns that occur as the ball leaves your keeper's hands.

Coach Wood lays out the dimensions of the playing space for each activity, provides key coaching points for running them and delivers insight into how a coach can tailor them to complement their particular playing style.

These activities not only provide many goal scoring opportunities, but they can also be used to train your goalkeeper. Since the drills are oriented to goal scoring they will place your keepers in situations that they will need to excel at during a game.

These drills will allow your athletes to "play soccer" and to more easily transfer what they learn in practice into a game. Order now and discover creative exercises to challenge your players and energize your attack!

Add a ball, competition and fun to your soccer conditioning!

2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year Marcus Wood demonstrates over 20 drills that will simultaneously develop technical skills and physical fitness. Wood demonstrates 19 "station drills" that can be combined to create a conditioning circuit and two additional drills that include the entire team.

Each drill combines a technical component such as ball control, dribbling, shooting or passing with conditioning elements such as plyometric bounding exercises for ACL injury prevention, speed ladder exercises that improve agility and footwork, change of direction drills, sprints for aerobic conditioning, and more. Also included are drills that will get your goalkeepers involved and present them with game-like challenges.

Many of the drills can be adjusted to the skill level and conditioning level of your players and to make them more competitive to increase the intensity. This kind of flexibility will also allow you to develop an effective work-to-rest ratio during fitness training to get the most out of your players.

Players get bored with the same conditioning exercises over and over again. Coach Wood gives you a plethora of exercises that will change-up your normal conditioning practice and keep your players more focused and motivated.
