Set pieces play a critical role in soccer. They are the only thing that we can predict will happen in every game yet most coaches do not spend much time on them in practice and consequently miss game-changing opportunities.

Using game film to demonstrate numerous scenarios, Marcus Wood takes several different situations and presents a plan of attack and a defense you can use in those situations.

  • Attacking and Defensive Corner Kicks - Identify the possible runs you can make and how to best frame and attack the goal on a corner kick. Wood provides strategies for positioning your bigs and littles, how to play to your players' strengths, and what you can do to improve your chances to make a play on a second ball - both offensively and defensively.
  • Direct and In-Direct Kicks - Coach Wood explains the basic concept to attack a free kick using the concept of "heels on toes."
  • Throw-Ins - Coach Wood illustrates possible runs as you are the attacking team taking a throw-in.
  • Goalkeeping - See how to stay compact as well as stay spread for any options toward or from the keeper.

Soccer is such a free flowing game that when you can practice something that you know will happen in the game you will increase your chances of success.
