Learn to breakdown modern, compact defenses! Brandon Koons shares his key fundamentals of creating an aggressive, attacking soccer team.

As modern defenses become more sophisticated and difficult to breakdown, it is essential to employ effective attacking methods in order to stay ahead of the competition. Coach Koons explains the key principles of creating a successful attack and then demonstrates how to coach them with your team.

Using a combination of lecture, diagrams, competition and practice footage, Koons outlines how to coach these key attacking principles to the advanced soccer player. You will see how to:

  • Create opportunities to break the line of defense by dribbling, passing and shooting.
  • Make runs to break apart the defense - stretch, check and threaten.
  • Train players functionally to attack defenses.
  • Encourage your players to take risks through dribbling and passing to beat defenders.
  • Make runs ahead of the ball to create offensive opportunities.
Koons walks you step-by-step through the process of building an attacking culture, from warm-ups to drills and ending with small-sided games. You will see a warm up drill to help your players recognize simple runs they can make in a game situation, games that encourage players to beat their opponents 1 v 1 on the dribble, a shooting drill that is fast paced and creates many shooting opportunities for the players and much more.

In addition to the drills and games, this DVD features many clear and concise coaching points that you can instantly put into your coaching toolbox and apply to any attacking situation.
