Team Tactics Dribbling in the Attacking Third

Drill Objective:

This is a great team tactic dribbling drill that focuses on when and where to dribble in the attacking third.

Drill Setup:

  • This drill requires the attacking third of the field with a full size goal.
  • Split the team into 6 attackers, 6 defenders, a goalkeeper and a server.
  • The server will start around midfield with a supply of balls.
  • Defenders are instructed to play tight man-to-man defense.

Drill Instructions:

  1. Attackers move to get free from their defender in order to receive a pass from the server.
  2. As the attacker receives the ball, they must immediately face his defender before dribbling.
  3. Their decision at this point should be
    1. take a shot if an opportunity exists.
    2. pass to a player in more advantageous spot.
    3. dribble to beat the defender.

Drill Coaching Points:

  • Tight defense will create a risk in going forward, but a risk that must be taken in order to score.
  • Players work together to create space.
Decisions
  • Players should dribble in the offensive third when a shot or pass is not available.
  • Beat the defender and get to the space behind
  • There is no support.

Drill Variations

  • Remove restrictions on the defenders.
