    Director of Coaching Education, NSCAA;
    21 years of college soccer coaching experience at Macalester College and University of Wisconsin;
    served for 10 years as the director of coaching and player development for the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA)

    Ian Barker demonstrates 13 warm-up drills that allow variation and progression with economy and fluidity. Coach Barker works with men and women (separately) to model attacking, defending, transitioning and even goalkeeping activation drills. The drills emphasize a blend of technical and physical demands with team communication.

    Coach Barker's drills lend themselves to rapid decision-making and variability potential to suit your preferences. You'll see how to move players efficiently and intensively through single-player technical ball touches, as well as partnered work that moves up the body to thigh, chest, and head touches and on to passing line and full-team drills.

    Warm-Up Activities

    There are 11 activities in this section that will get your players up and moving. They are designed for athletes of all levels and each drill progresses into the next. The activities include:

    • Mirror Activity - Great activities for shadowing and movement within a fun and competitive drill. You can use this as a drill to activate movement or it can be tied into training as part of 1v1 defending.
    • Scramble - This section can be looked at as chaos with a purpose. Coach Barker uses some cues that all coaches can steal and use in their own training sessions.
    • Knock and Move - Helps players understand how to stay onside and move wide to get into position to receive a lead pass.Keeper Warm-up - Trains the keeper's need to recognize the type of pass coming to them and handle it the proper way. A great way to get everyone involved in the warm-up.
    • Ladder - Coach Barker uses ladder agility drills to teach multiple movements and agility while finding the ball or getting touches on the ball once athletes have changed direction.
    • Technical Circles - This section takes all of the skills an athlete has and puts them together in different phases to get lots of touches on the ball. Partners will work in a whole-team framework. The premium placed on communication and blend of individual footwork, passing, and rapid decision-making synthesizes the fluid components of the game played at high levels.

    You'll see Coach Barker instruct players on points of emphasis, singling out specific player movements or decisions for praise or critique at appropriate moments.

    Coach Barker models and explains over 70 minutes of progressive warm-up and activation drills that work for beginning and advanced players. The wide variety of activities allows players to work their way intensively and efficiently into peak technical, physical, and psychological readiness.

    with Ian Barker,
    Director of Coaching Education, NSCAA;
    21 years of college soccer coaching experience at Macalester College and University of Wisconsin;
    served for 10 years as the director of coaching and player development for the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA)

    Learn how to take activities you currently use and adapt them to work on different components of the game

    • Learn shooting drills that will increase your team's scoring opportunities
    • Learn small sided games to improve speed of play in attacking and defending
    • Use creative passing exercises to develop your players' soccer awareness
    Currently serving as the NSCAA's Director of Coaching Education, Ian Barker presents 10+ small group exercises that will make the good coach a better coach, and the effective coach more effective. These training exercises can be used with any age group.

    Building a Successful Training Session

    Coach Barker lays out the traits needed to build an efficient and successful practice. Once the video moves to the field, Coach Barker provides examples of these coaching necessities. He provides the five essentials of an effective coach.

    Training Exercises

    These exercises are built around the four components of soccer: Technical, tactical (or decisions), physical and psychological. An example of some of the exercises you will see include:

    • 5v2+3 - A traditional keep away game with a transition tied into it. A great game for teaching transitions and can be used for pressing. The section goes on and becomes progressive building on each game.
    • 4v4 - Filled with many good opportunities for teaching paired defending and passing to keep possession.
    • 1v1 to 2v2 - Ideal for teams who like to press or play more forward soccer. Players try to score on a small gate diagonal from where they start. The game then moves to a 2v2 situation, where you must work with your partner to widen the defenders out or if defending learns to have 1 defender press while the other has a choice.
    • Shooting Activities - This section has three drills that are very progressive. Each drill adds a different element to a pass, pass back, shot, then movement to crash the net and receive a cross from the corner. The combination of a shot from straight on and then the cross is a great way to teach movement to the net. The added element of adding a partner also helps with learning to communicate as you attack with numbers. All the drills require the players to move around a mannequin and either hides the ball to drop it or to shot once around the mannequin. All of these situations are game like situations.
    • Triangle Passing - Set up so four players practice three passing activities before entering into a 3v1 keep away exercise. Coach Barker's explanation of how a pass towards the player back foot instead of their front foot puts the receiving player in better position to pass the ball and keep possession moving.
    • 1v1 Gates - This section has good explanation of attacking 1v1 and defends 1v1.

    Barker does great work with explaining all the sections and what coaches should expect from each drill. He stops the play as needed to explain what he is looking for.

    Director of Coaching Education, NSCAA;
    21 years of college soccer coaching experience at Macalester College and University of Wisconsin;
    served for 10 years as the director of coaching and player development for the Minnesota Youth Soccer Association (MYSA)

    The ability to recognize numbers advantages in the run of play is something all coaches want from their players. NSCAA NSCAA Director of Coaching Education Ian Barker shows you how to build up your attack and how to train your players to recognize numbers-up situations.

    Through a progression of small-sided games, your players will learn when and how to add width and length to the field. Coach Barker chooses proper times to freeze play and utilizes these moments to teach players recognition during each situation.

    1 v. 1, 2 v. 1, 3 v. 1 and More

    Once your players master their touches on the ball, they must begin to master their position on the field and how it relates to their teammates and opponents. Starting with 1v1, Barker breaks down each scenario and how to add another offensive player in the situation. He emphasizes the four components of quality coaching:

    • Creating space away from the ball to improve attacking chances.
    • Utilizing your goalkeeper as a viable option to help counter movements and to alleviate pressure.
    • Switching the ball quickly and attacking with pace to fully take advantage of a transition moment.
    • Using zones as the session continues to build allows the players to see the functionality of their spacing.

    Practice Segments

    Coach Barker progresses from having players compete in restricted areas to giving them freedom to play and apply what they learned. Practice builds up until players take on more complex off the ball movements. Many of the progression include teaching movements to create spacing such as:

    • Give width and length.
    • Utilize the target to establish spacing.
    • Interchange with a teammate.

    You will get five drills to help your players understand their position on and off the ball and how it relates to play on the pitch. Coach Barker's dynamic drills create real play situations and offer players several options in obtaining a numerical advantage, while supporting the effort of quick recovery in numbers down and maintaining balance on the field.

    Coach Barker also discusses his four components of soccer, how to blend in different variables like time restrictions, and gives tips for effective coaching.

    This video is sure to help your team improve their attacking. Through establishing width, playing in a numbers up or numbers down situation, transitioning with pace and more, Coach Barker shows you adaptable sessions that teach key soccer principles.

    Bobby Muuss,
    Wake Forest University Head Men's Soccer Coach;
    2016 NCAA College Cup Runner-up;
    3 straight appearances in the quarterfinals (2015-2017);
    Muuss' record in his first three years includes 55 wins - more than any other D I program in that same span.
    3x ACC Coach of the Year;
    former University of Denver Head Coach (2013 Summit League Coach of the Year);
    former Assistant Coach at UConn (2000 NCAA Champions, 3x Big East Champions)

    Bobby Muuss shows how he teaches his players the importance of playing off target players and the movement needed to attack quickly using the "Wake Forest Way." He provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show different key elements for your players.

    In this video, you'll learn how to train your team to play off target players. Coach Muuss explains the teaching points he emphasizes during the exercises:

    • Movement and supporting angles going forward that create the most danger.
    • Good reactions in transitional moments.
    • Positioning of players in advanced areas and how to bring players into the match.
    • Importance of finding a rhythm in the opponent's half of the field to find central areas.

    Practice Segments

    Muuss includes six exercises that he uses at Wake Forest. He begins this session by putting his players through a warm-up. Here, he shows how to incorporate dynamic stretching, technical passing and first touch, speed and quickness, and injury prevention all within the warm up.

    The second exercise that Coach Muuss shows is what he calls "6v6+4 Transfer Box." This game addresses attacking, defending, and his transitional style of play. It's during this game that players are put in an environment where they have two target players to find; the central midfielder and center striker. The players also have to play using the correct shape while making the right decisions to be able to play through pressure and tight spaces.

    In the third activity, Muuss shows how he builds from an unopposed to opposed game with a 3v0 to 3v3 transition game. Throughout the session, he teaches his players the different types of runs they can make to not only create space for themselves, but also gain the ability to combine and find third man runners. As he adds three additional players, Muuss continues to stress how important off the ball movement can be to rip apart even the most compact defenses.

    Next, Coach Muuss increases the amount of players to make a 5v5 transition game. Once the ball enters the field of play, he forces two players to have to recover from transition, giving the attacking team a numbers-up situation going to goal.

    After the 5v5 game, Coach Muuss makes the situation more complex by making it 9v8. An element added is the use of "Area 14," which is a key area for successful attacking teams. Through the design of the session, players now have to recognize which area is best to attack based on the defending team and how they recover.

    The sixth and final game is a 7v7+1 game with touch restrictions. Muuss uses this game to reinforce what was taught during the session and adds the touch restriction to continue to force his players to play at a high tempo.

    No matter what system you play, you will need to learn how to play off certain key players to penetrate and go forward with pace. Coach Muuss does an excellent job of creating the right environment to teach his players, and this video allows you to take his techniques and implement them yourself!

    Muuss' record in his first three years includes 55 wins - more than any other D I program in that same span.
    3x ACC Coach of the Year;
    former University of Denver Head Coach (2013 Summit League Coach of the Year);
    former Assistant Coach at UConn (2000 NCAA Champions, 3x Big East Champions)

    Wake Forest University is one of the top men's soccer programs in the country. In this video, head coach Bobby Muuss gives a rare behind the scenes look into what has helped the Wake Forest soccer program achieve tremendous success.

    Coach Muuss demonstrates how he teaches his players the importance of possession to penetrate and the art of counter pressing the "Wake Forest Way." You'll see numerous progressions that will help your team be dangerous keeping the ball and allow them to quickly win it back. Muuss provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show different key elements for your players, including:

    • The movement and supporting angles needed from supporting players.
    • Reactions needed to win the ball back.
    • How to read the play and make the right decisions based on positioning.
    • The small details needed to be a technical attacking team.
    • The importance of scanning and checking your shoulder for better vision.

    Small Sided Games

    Coach Muuss begins by addressing the key technical elements needed for quick ball circulation, body position, and the ability to turn in a dynamic setting. You'll see three unopposed passing patterns that lay the foundation for his team's ability to play forward. The emphasis in these particular passing patterns is that the players develop a good sense of rhythm when passing while making sure the angles of support are correct. He progresses this by showing additional patterns to be able to attack and go forward.

    The second small sided game that Muuss shows is a 5v2 reaction game. It's here that he is able to cover the two main topics of the session, which are possession to penetrate using a third man and counter pressing. He trains his players to play using the correct shape and decision making to be able to play through pressure and tight spaces to find a central player. He also lays the foundation of getting into good habits of reaction when losing the ball.

    In the third game, which is 4v4+3, Muuss builds from his previous game into a more complex one with the same emphasis. He creates and shows a dynamic way of teaching the use of quick ball circulation and the ability to counter press when the right moment occurs. Throughout the small sided game, he continues to stress how important off the ball movement can be and how important it is to have good reactions in a competitive environment.

    The fourth small sided game is 7v0 to 7v5 Game. It's here that Coach Muuss builds his players in an unopposed environment while teaching them the playing style/philosophy he wants. These include three main objectives: ball circulation, wingers in, and positioning of the outside backs. Once the players are able to grasp the idea, he adds seven more players to the game.

    The fifth and final small sided game is a 7v7+1 game with touch restrictions. Muuss uses this game to reinforce what was taught during the session and adds the touch restriction to continue to force his players to play at a high tempo.

    Coach Muuss uses this video to show how he trains his teams to possess to penetrate and how to apply the counter press. Every coach must teach their team how to possess and play through the field, and this is one of the most in-depth resources to learn possession that you'll find!

    with Matt Clepper,
    Indy Warriors FC Head Coach;
    5x CICC Champions; 4x State Champions; WCSSF U19 League Champions

    The hardest thing to do in the game of soccer - and the most vital aspect that determines the success of your team - is finishing.

    In his five-year tenure with the Indy Warriors, Matt Clepper's teams average four goals or more per match - a total that is incredibly difficult to overcome and has powered the team to three IHSA State Championships in its brief history.

    Coach Clepper demonstrates how he teaches finishing at Indy Warriors FC and what has made his team an attacking threat at the high school level. He provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show different ideas on how to create an attack that will put fear in your opponents. You will learn the correct technique of finishing in terms of placement vs. power, proper runs that need to be made in the box when attacking the goal, how to incorporate the whole team and not just the forwards/strikers, and how the use of combination play and speed of play can help you gain an extra advantage when finishing.

    Create a Philosophy of Attack

    To help your team improve its attacking prowess, it is important to develop an attacking strategy that matches your team's individual strengths. Clepper starts in the classroom and maps out the key elements that make it difficult for your opponents to defend you while highlighting some useful and easy to remember principles of his attacking philosophy.ÿSome of the topics covered include:

    • Where forwards should position themselves to become incredibly hard for the opposition to defend.
    • How to take advantage of the other team's weaknesses.
    • How to create your best angles for attack.

    Once attacking strategies have been created and player positions are identified, Clepper demonstrates how to design movement strategies that enable players to make tactical runs on and off the ball that can unbalance defenses to score more goals.

    Wing Play

    Clepper teaches a few different attacking options from the wing position. The drills and games included in this video follow a progressive training sequence that will help you learn the secrets to building a dangerous attack from the wing.ÿ

    You'll see the 3v0 Wing drill, a crossing and finishing exercise that works on a wing player's angle of approach to the goal and getting to the touch line to create goal scoring opportunities. The emphasis in this drill is that the players develop a good sense of dribbling the ball with pace from wide areas. This includes cutting the ball back, early crosses, and the types of runs needed from your strikers. Once players start developing confidence, defenders are added for more game-like pressure. Clepper progresses the exercise in a more functional setting with passive pressure allowing the players lots of repetition.

    Still under the principle of wing play, Clepper introduces what is known as "probe dribbling." This is where the dribbler actively looks for gaps and spaces for a through ball. He starts this with a 4v4 game where the ball starts from the winger and dribbles around the top of the 18 yard box looking for runs from their supporting attackers to make in key areas. The exercise is progressed in a 6v4 game to add more supporting angles for the attacking team. Finally, Clepper moves to a 6v6 version of the game.

    Checking Forward

    In this segment, Coach Clepper shows the importance of the center forward with their movement and decision making on and off the ball. In a pattern play scenario, Clepper has his players in a 7v4 situation using half the field. During these patterns, players are given plenty of repetition at not only wing play, but also probe dribbling. Some key coaching points include:

    • The cues to look for to create a 1-2 or overlapping moment.
    • How the #10 can create space to get the ball.
    • Movement and decisions to make depending on pressure.

    Press and Switch

    Clepper sets up how to get your forwards to press to create more goal scoring opportunities. It's during this moment where players are taught to try and switch the point of attack to create a 1v1 on the opposite side to exploit the weak side. Players are placed in 5v6 situation, forcing athletes to not only get their head for the switch, but to maintain proper attacking shape and attack with pace once the ball is switched. To make this pressing situation work, Clepper breaks down three drills that isolate the center halfbacks.

    • Halfback Turn Drill - A simple passing drill that works on timing runs, receiving, and turning of the ball.
    • Halfback 2v1 - Works on movement of halfbacks in midfield to create space and then quickly and accurately send it to your wing player. The wing goes 1v1 and has to get a cross off to the other forwards.
    • Halfback Pattern - A pattern is set up so halfbacks can work on quickly and decisively connecting passes with dangerous wing players.

    Clepper finishes by showing how everything applies during a team scrimmage. He constantly emphasizes what his team's attacking identity is and uses a game situation to make sure the attackers are on the same page.

    Similar to his video on team defending, Clepper expertly details strategies to help teams at any level create a devastatingly effective attacking philosophy. This video is full of tactical discussions and on-field practice clips that will show you exactly how to bring these strategies to life on the field.

    The best teams in the world are well organized defensively and make it tough for other teams to play through. Top level teams like Atletico Madrid, the Italian National Team and Inter Milan (under Jose Mourinho) were known for their success because of the way they defended.

    In this video, Coach Clepper demonstrates how he teaches defending at Indy Warriors FC and what has made his team set records for goals against. Clepper teaches four different concepts that will help your team not only defend, but also transition quickly and get organized behind the ball. Clepper provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show different ideas on how to transition quickly on both sides of the ball.

    Filling and Collapsing Space

    The easiest way to break down an opposing defense is to take advantages of gaps between the forwards, midfielders, and defenders. As these gaps are created, alignments must shift to stop the ball, leading to mismatches and goals. Clepper starts in the classroom and maps out the key elements that make it incredibly difficult for your opponents to score while highlighting some useful and easy to remember principles of his defensive philosophy. Some of the topics covered include:

    • Defensive cues to read the game to get a head start on your attacker.
    • The keys to not get beaten in transition.
    • How your defensive strategy should change as play gets closer to the goal your team is defending.
    • How to separate the attacker from the ball on the turn.
    • The proper shape, distances, and angles needed to defend in small groups.
    • How to defend properly to quickly start a counter attack.

    Defending Drills

    Coach Clepper teaches his philosophy about how to be a great individual and team defender. The drills and games included in this video follow a progressive training sequence that will help you learn the secrets to building a great defense.ÿDrills include:

    • 1v1 Facing an Attacker: Learn the three step process for shutting down attackers.
    • 1v1 Facing an Attacker's Back: Learn the key elements of how to quickly dispossess the ball from an attacker who receives it with their back to you.
    • 2v2: Learn the right spacing and movement so your players don't get split. ÿ
    • 4v4 Backline Walkthrough: Coach Clepper walks through the defensive responsibilities checklist.ÿThe series progresses into a live drill where the back four work together to stop the attack in various parts of the field. ÿ
    • 6v4: Learn how to defend and stifle the opponent's attack even when outnumbered. ÿ
    • 8v4: Learn how four defenders can keep eight players from scoring by being in the correct positions.ÿ

    The key coaching points in each drill include:

    • How to make adjustments as the ball moves across the field.
    • Keeping players organized and connected in order to stop through ball penetration.
    • How defensive spacing changes when you are defending a good dribbler.
    • The back four zonal shape and responsibilities when defending outside of the 18 yard box.
    • How to switch from zonal defending to man marking once the ball is inside the 18 yard box.

    Coach Clepper constantly emphasizes the principle of staying connected to eliminate through balls. ÿ

    On average, there are over 200 transitional moments during a game. It's important to master and take advantage of those moments to be successful, and this video will help you do just that!

    Alan Yost and his Capital men's soccer team qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 2017 and became the first team in program history to win a game in the tournament. Yost's 5-3-2 defensive formation contributed to his team's success thanks to its ability to quickly take advantage of the counterattack.

    This video from Coach Yost will help you teach your players to be successful in the 5-3-2 through a series of drills and games that focus on the technical and tactical buildup of the formation. Yost includes play diagramming and game highlights to help illustrate each teaching point he makes. The 5-3-2 is especially effective at keeping the opponent out of your critical scoring areas while enabling an effective counterattack through transition to finish.

    Building the Defense

    Reinforce fundamental individual defense and build to team defensive roles through a series of four drills and progressions. Coach Yost explains and demonstrates:

    • Front and back hand defending; as well as front and back foot defending.
    • Defensive roles in small-sided situations.
    • How to make offensive play predictable and how to recognize when to jump in during vulnerable situations to create a counterattack.

    Ball Movement Through the Midfield

    Through a series of two possession-focused drills and progressions, you'll learn to teach your midfielders to disguise their passes to facilitate ball movement. Yost shows how to work on ball movement in a small area and how to apply the same principles on a larger scale within the 5-3-2.

    Finish the Counterattack

    Coach Yost teaches a finishing drill that will train your players how to be successful when provided attack opportunities within the 5-3-2. He'll help you understand how to shift the formation to support the attack and what the roles and positioning requirements are to finish the ball consistently.

    The 5-3-2, when implemented as taught by Coach Yost, can tighten up your defense and be an effective counterattack formation. This session teaches and demonstrates the player/position roles and responsibilities that will help your 5-3-2 dominate the competition!

    Through a series of three passing patterns, you will see how to maximize ball movement within your midfield shape. Yost runs his team through different options within each pattern while emphasizing the key points of:

    • Effective ball movement with the proper touch and pace on the ball.
    • Game-like verbal and visual communication.
    • Disguising passes with exaggerated feints and "selling the dummy."

    Small-Sided Games

    Yost gives you three small-sided games which build on the passing patterns and incorporate transition. You'll see how the elements of the passing patterns can help your team find success under pressure, as well as how changing game parameters can highlight specific coaching points.

    Finishing

    You'll see three finishing games which expand on the concepts taught within the passing patterns and small-sided games. Coach Yost emphasizes:

    • The creation of right and left options for the ball carrier.
    • Why attacking the defender's front foot will help athletes find success.
    • Being creative in the final third to create finishing opportunities.

    This video presents ideas that can help you design a complete practice. Every small-sided game incorporates transition play and continual play while providing plenty of touches for all players.

    with Vern Gingerich, University of Notre Dame Men's Soccer Goalkeeper Coach,
    member of the 2013 NCAA Championship coaching staff, played goalkeeper for four years at Trine University

    Goalkeeper coach Vern Gingerich shares an inside look at a goalkeeper training session with the University of Notre Dame men's soccer program. Beginning with a dynamic warm-up for goalies, Gingerich offers great ways to get keepers ready to react and handle the ball.

    Goalkeeping Basics
    Teach your keepers how to get in position to stop any shot. Your goalkeepers will be able to make strong saves, especially when they get their body behind the ball.

    Quick Reactions
    The key to giving up fewer goals is to be ready at any moment for the shot. Coach Gingerich demonstrates reaction drills that build the goalie's mobility and gets them used to sprinting for a ball. These drills also develop a sense of how to make saves while looking past or through a wall of defenders.

    Pull Backs
    When the attackers are making a run down the field, especially from the wings, they will try to take the ball to the end line and make a pass across the box to a forward or central midfielder for a shot. This segment trains goalies become better at cutting off passes and angles on any shot taken. Keepers also learn not to cheat out too much anticipating a cross. The need to cover the near post in case of a shot from the wing is also emphasized.

    Goalkeepers of all skill levels can benefit from this thorough training session. Watch your keepers become more confident in their actions and better able to make more saves. The clean sheets will add up.

    former SMU Head Coach; guided SMU to 22 NCAA Tournaments in 24 years as Head Coach, won 15 conference titles and was named conference coach of the year eight times; NSCAA Director of Coaching Emeritus

    Counter-attack soccer has evolved into more than just a moment in a game. This new style of soccer is becoming the fundamental attack for many teams in the world. In this DVD, Schellas Hyndman focuses on how you can incorporate counter-attack soccer into your style of play.

    Coach Hyndman thoroughly breaks down moments of transition in a game and how your players can recognize those moments. He does a great job teaching the key elements of counter-attack and then shows, through multiple exercises, how to apply those elements to a practice session. Players will learn the different types of counter-attacks and how each helps the team.

    3 Types of Counter-Attack

    Counter-attack can be defined in many ways. It's important for players to understand the different methods to counter-attack effectively. Coach Hyndman emphasizes three methods that teams use to generate a counter attack:

    • Running and dribbling with the ball into the opponent's area
    • Two to three quick passes forward
    • Long balls over the top

    His progressive training activity illustrates all three of these methods. A great measure of flexibility is afforded for you to pull out the segments that make the most sense in your own circumstance.

    Counter-Attack Practice Segments

    Coach Hyndman moves the session along from discussing angles and pockets of where players can receive the ball to begin the counter-attack, to playing against more defenders with a different array of numbers advantages.

    Practice builds up to players being put in different situations where they have to make decisions on how to counter-attack. Coach Hyndman stops play to describe how players can make a sound decision in these moments. He also discusses several key elements to counter-attack such as:

    • Immediate forward action
    • Teammates' willingness to support
    • Finding swift solutions to problems by looking for opportunities

    Coach Hyndman discusses the differences between a fast break and collective counter and between a solo counter and advanced counter.

    4v4+1 Exercise

    Most of the drills in this video start from a 4v4+1 set up. Coach Hyndman brilliantly incorporates quick ball speed, immediate forward action, a minimum number of passes and fast finishing into this activity. The activity can be expanded into numerous alternate iterations such as a 3v2, 5v1 or 5v2 counter. It's useful to be able to select the counter that best suits your own team.

    Relying on his professional experience as a player and coach, Schellas Hyndman outlines the basis of an effective counter-attack, then illustrates the development of a counter attacking mindset. Under the high pressure of these progressive activities, your players will learn to rapidly penetrate under the pressure of a recovering defensive unit.

    Many teams have taken to defensive tactics of compaction and organization in their half of the field, allowing superior teams to have the bulk of the ball and possession. An organized and compact press can allow less talented teams to break down superior opponents, or allow possession-oriented teams to quickly win the ball back in their opponent's half.

    Using a progression of team defense practice drills, Hyndman demonstrates four practice drills for pressing your opponent that build on top of each other. He concludes with a short video demonstration to reinforce the ideas taught.

    Pressing Drills

    Learn how to teach your players to have a two-way mentality and quickly go from offense to defense in order to win the ball back quickly. Coach Hyndman teaches the team philosophy of pressing quickly and with numbers in order to be effective. You'll see:

    • 6v3 - A passing exercise used to teach your team to trap effectively and to see the field
    • 6v6 Game-Like Pressing - Creates an environment where the defensive team can practice their pressing
    • 7v7 Game-Like Pressing - Improves individual defending
    • 11v11 Game-Like Pressing - Creates an opportunity to have a real life game situation with limitations on the offense
    • Game Film - Coach Hyndman brings you into the classroom and breaks down film on pressing

    Practice Segment

    With his 6v3 practice segment, Coach Hyndman begins to reinforce the mentality needed to be an effective high press team. He explains the importance of teaching your players to recognize when and how to press in order to be most effective at winning the ball back from your opponents.

    Coach Hyndman begins by using slides to give you visuals and then takes you to the field where you learn the importance of:

    • Having the mentality to attack with and without the ball
    • Physical conditioning to be equal to the demand of the press
    • Pressing using angles of pressure and positions of supporting players
    • Having key individuals to lead the press

    You then have the opportunity to see the drill live and hear comments from Coach Hyndman.

    Coach Hyndman gives you a lot of material to look over in this video. You'll be able to use the included content at practices as individual drills or as a progression for pressing.

    If there was a video on the market that could drastically increase your team's scoring opportunities, would you buy it? Brent Erwin's leading edge drills continually place attackers in an endless array of scoring positions, unleashing their offensive prowess.

    Coach Erwin takes you through a series of fast-paced drills that teach players how to attack the back line. His innovative second ball drill simulates many of the second chance scoring opportunities that players often miss in games. He turns typical passing combination drills into short, action packed competitions, forcing players out of their comfort zone.

    Warm-up Series

    You can now skip slow, tedious warm-up drills and move straight into game actions that foster team chemistry while at the same time double as a dynamic warm-up. After a short white board session, Erwin walks players though the combinations used for future drills. The crawl, walk and run approach is used, giving you the flexibility to emphasize your own team needs. As the warm-up progresses, defensive players are added to create game-like conditions.

    One-Touch Opportunities

    Coach Erwin challenges old soccer training methodology with his use of "second ball" during game action. Players discover how to score more off of one-touch opportunities. His emphasis on scoring positions puts players in spots that the defense can't keep up with.

    He takes one of the hardest ideas for your young soccer players to master, identifying and attacking the defensive back line, and turns it into a strength. Coach Erwin's principles and progressions are intuitive, allowing coaches of all age groups to seamlessly apply them to practices. Your players will learn to:

    • Identify key scoring spots for more shots on goal
    • Transition from an attacking pattern into scoring spots to increase the number of second chance shots
    • Shoot off one touch, which improves scoring IQ
    • Learn how to break the back line with sophisticated angles and passes
    • Integrate passing patterns that confuse back line formations and leave them more susceptible to open shots

    7v7+1 Exercise

    Coach Erwin uses a free flow style of coaching and only stops play after several minutes to allow players to solve problems on their own. This style rapidly increases a team's IQ and chemistry while reducing the number of wasted possessions.

    Score more goals using Brent Erwin's innovative instruction on the best ways to break the opponent's defensive line!

    The modern goalkeeper must be able to play high enough up-field to act as a sweeping defender behind a back four, thus intercepting through balls and snuffing out attacks before they even begin. However, a poor decision by a sweeper keeper can quickly leave the goal undefended. Brent Erwin lays out a clear set of principles and match triggers to help goalkeepers be decisive and effective in this video; he shares how to teach a goalkeeper when to come for the ball, and, when to prioritize protecting the goal.

    Using a progression of individual goalkeeper and full team practice drills, Coach Erwin demonstrates drills for getting goalkeepers off their line and out of their comfort zones in order to be explosive in 1v1 situations and full field play. You'll be able to implement strategies to improve both technical aspects of goalkeeping (body positioning and hand foot placement) and tactical understanding of body position behind defenders and in line with the ball. Ultimately, goalkeepers will develop confidence in approaching the ball off the line in practice situations in order to perform confidently in high stakes game situations.

    Practice Segments

    Coach Erwin breaks down this video in three main segments. He first begins his session by using only his goalkeepers in a functional, unopposed situation dealing with the technical aspects of using your hands and feet. He also addresses how to effectively use the drop step for the goalkeeper to recover back on their line.

    The second segment adds pressure in a 1v1 game that forces the goalkeeper to play just outside the 18 yard box. An additional element added is how goalkeepers deal with the "chip" shot from the attacker. This puts the goalkeeper in a position to have to choose to set and confront the situation or drop and stay closer to their goal.

    Small Sided Game

    The last segment of the video is a small sided game that includes not only the goalkeepers, but how to add the entire team to address the needs of the goalkeeper in a 6v6+2 game with the field divided up in thirds. This game creates many opportunities for the goalkeeper to come out of their area to deal with different types of balls.

    Coach Erwin explains the teaching points he emphasizes during the game:

    • Best positioning to effectively sweep behind a back four
    • Clear triggers for when to sweep and when to recover
    • Proper technique for claiming through balls
    • Proper footwork for recovering to protect the goal
    • Recognizing situations where the keeper must anticipate and guard against being chipped
    • Clear communication and coordination with defenders
    • How the keeper should play based on the pressure on the ball
    • Which balls the keeper should come out to play vs. which balls the defenders should play
    • Encourage the player to take risks in practice so they know their range

    Coach Erwin gives you everything you need to coach the goalkeeper when it comes to playing off your line and being able to play with your feet and hands. You'll learn the technique, player mindset, body position and the proper positioning to best manage the space in front of the goalkeeper.

    with Ben Paneccasio,
    Men's and Women's Performance Specialist Coach at Grand Canyon University

    Soccer is a sport that demands long periods of running and long bouts of concentration on the ball no matter what age. Physically, players need speed, power, agility and quickness to be successful with the ball against an opponent.

    Ben Paneccasio gives you everything you need to know to set up your own conditioning program to help get your team in shape, along with touches necessary to win. In this video, he demonstrates how to utilize the four energy zone progressions needed for players to be physically ready to play soccer at a high level.

    You'll see how to combine training zones with playing zones. Each zone has different levels of fitness goals to achieve along with drills to use for the zone. This incorporates technical work with conditioning rates and gets your players to focus on technique:

    • Zone 1 - longer duration; lower pace
    • Zone 2 - medium duration; moderate intensity (aerobic power)
    • Zone 3 - shorter duration; high intensity (anaerobic power)
    • Zone 4 - short duration; maximum intensity (anaerobic endurance)

    He walks you through the four energy zones step-by-step with diagrams, PowerPoints, and on-field exercises. You'll see how to go from light to maximum effort with easy to follow guidelines. Games can also be used in the progressions. You can copy Coach Paneccasio's drills or create your own using the energy zone progressions.

    Coach Paneccasio gives you the ability to mix fitness and soccer without losing time just sprinting up and back on the field. The activities in this video are mentally engaging, challenging and fun. Your players won't even realize they're doing the conditioning part of practice!

    former University of Denver Head Coach (2013 Summit League Coach of the Year);
    former Assistant Coach at UConn (2000 NCAA Champions, 3x Big East Champions)

    In this video, Bobby Muuss demonstrates how he teaches his players to press and the art of counter pressing the "Wake Forest Way." He provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show different key elements for your players.

    You'll learn how to train your team to press and how to quickly counter press to win the ball back as fast as you can. Muuss explains the teaching points he emphasizes during the exercises:

    • Reactions needed to win the ball back.
    • How to play proactive defense.
    • The importance of staying connected as a team to properly defend.

    Practice Segments

    Coach Muuss begins this session by having his players go through a warm-up. Within this warm-up, he addresses numerous aspects which include dynamic stretching, speed/agility/quickness, injury prevention, first touch technical work, and the foundation of individual defense with the use of mannequins.

    The second segment is "2v2v2+1." It's in this exercise that players must be aware of the defending team and how quick reactions are needed to make sure they're not on the wrong side of the ball when the game ends. This is where Muuss trains the habits needed to build his pressing game at Wake Forest. It also forces his players to play and make quick decisions in tight spaces.

    In the third activity, Coach Muuss shows a "7v3 Pressing Game." As with most of his games, players indirectly train multiple aspects of the game. Possession and pressing are key aspects that are covered in this game. Players are rewarded by not only keeping the ball, but counter pressing in small groups of three.

    The fourth game is a progression from the previous one, but Muuss adds additional numbers and larger goals to also work on finishing from close range. The teams are given specific roles to either keep possession or counter press and score within a given amount of time.

    The fifth and final game is 7v7+1. Muuss uses this game to reinforce what was taught during the session, but gives the teams additional points by winning the ball in the attacking half of the field to reinforce pressing and defending on the front foot.

    Coach Muuss shows you just how effective pressing can be and how Wake Forest has used it to their advantage, making them one of the best college teams in the nation.

    Bobby Muuss shows how he teaches his players the importance of playing off target players and the movement needed to attack quickly using the "Wake Forest Way." He provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show different key elements for your players.

    In this video, you'll learn how to train your team to play off target players. Coach Muuss explains the teaching points he emphasizes during the exercises:

    • Movement and supporting angles going forward that create the most danger.
    • Good reactions in transitional moments.
    • Positioning of players in advanced areas and how to bring players into the match.
    • Importance of finding a rhythm in the opponent's half of the field to find central areas.

    Practice Segments

    Muuss includes six exercises that he uses at Wake Forest. He begins this session by putting his players through a warm-up. Here, he shows how to incorporate dynamic stretching, technical passing and first touch, speed and quickness, and injury prevention all within the warm up.

    The second exercise that Coach Muuss shows is what he calls "6v6+4 Transfer Box." This game addresses attacking, defending, and his transitional style of play. It's during this game that players are put in an environment where they have two target players to find; the central midfielder and center striker. The players also have to play using the correct shape while making the right decisions to be able to play through pressure and tight spaces.

    In the third activity, Muuss shows how he builds from an unopposed to opposed game with a 3v0 to 3v3 transition game. Throughout the session, he teaches his players the different types of runs they can make to not only create space for themselves, but also gain the ability to combine and find third man runners. As he adds three additional players, Muuss continues to stress how important off the ball movement can be to rip apart even the most compact defenses.

    Next, Coach Muuss increases the amount of players to make a 5v5 transition game. Once the ball enters the field of play, he forces two players to have to recover from transition, giving the attacking team a numbers-up situation going to goal.

    After the 5v5 game, Coach Muuss makes the situation more complex by making it 9v8. An element added is the use of "Area 14," which is a key area for successful attacking teams. Through the design of the session, players now have to recognize which area is best to attack based on the defending team and how they recover.

    The sixth and final game is a 7v7+1 game with touch restrictions. Muuss uses this game to reinforce what was taught during the session and adds the touch restriction to continue to force his players to play at a high tempo.

    No matter what system you play, you will need to learn how to play off certain key players to penetrate and go forward with pace. Coach Muuss does an excellent job of creating the right environment to teach his players, and this video allows you to take his techniques and implement them yourself!

    Wake Forest University is one of the top men's soccer programs in the country. In this video, head coach Bobby Muuss gives a rare behind the scenes look into what has helped the Wake Forest soccer program achieve tremendous success.

    Coach Muuss demonstrates how he teaches his players the importance of possession to penetrate and the art of counter pressing the "Wake Forest Way." You'll see numerous progressions that will help your team be dangerous keeping the ball and allow them to quickly win it back. Muuss provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show different key elements for your players, including:

    • The movement and supporting angles needed from supporting players.
    • Reactions needed to win the ball back.
    • How to read the play and make the right decisions based on positioning.
    • The small details needed to be a technical attacking team.
    • The importance of scanning and checking your shoulder for better vision.

    Small Sided Games

    Coach Muuss begins by addressing the key technical elements needed for quick ball circulation, body position, and the ability to turn in a dynamic setting. You'll see three unopposed passing patterns that lay the foundation for his team's ability to play forward. The emphasis in these particular passing patterns is that the players develop a good sense of rhythm when passing while making sure the angles of support are correct. He progresses this by showing additional patterns to be able to attack and go forward.

    The second small sided game that Muuss shows is a 5v2 reaction game. It's here that he is able to cover the two main topics of the session, which are possession to penetrate using a third man and counter pressing. He trains his players to play using the correct shape and decision making to be able to play through pressure and tight spaces to find a central player. He also lays the foundation of getting into good habits of reaction when losing the ball.

    In the third game, which is 4v4+3, Muuss builds from his previous game into a more complex one with the same emphasis. He creates and shows a dynamic way of teaching the use of quick ball circulation and the ability to counter press when the right moment occurs. Throughout the small sided game, he continues to stress how important off the ball movement can be and how important it is to have good reactions in a competitive environment.

    The fourth small sided game is 7v0 to 7v5 Game. It's here that Coach Muuss builds his players in an unopposed environment while teaching them the playing style/philosophy he wants. These include three main objectives: ball circulation, wingers in, and positioning of the outside backs. Once the players are able to grasp the idea, he adds seven more players to the game.

    The fifth and final small sided game is a 7v7+1 game with touch restrictions. Muuss uses this game to reinforce what was taught during the session and adds the touch restriction to continue to force his players to play at a high tempo.

    Coach Muuss uses this video to show how he trains his teams to possess to penetrate and how to apply the counter press. Every coach must teach their team how to possess and play through the field, and this is one of the most in-depth resources to learn possession that you'll find!

    Goalkeepers who can make tough saves can be the difference between winning a game and losing it. Coach Hamilton shows you how to design training sessions for goalkeepers that maximize their goal coverage and give them an edge in making a reaction save when the time comes.

    Former University of Florida Assistant Coach Jason Hamilton covers all of the coaching points for each drill before he starts each session. Using practice footage, he demonstrates how to develop the drills that build confidence as well as fitness and skill levels in goalkeepers as they prepare to handle difficult shots. Key coaching points include:

    • Using drills to develop advanced ball-handling skills
    • Improving reaction time on point blank shots
    • Teaching goalkeepers to dive through the ball when making a save
    • Creating games to simulate game-day situations
    • Challenging the shooter to force a wide or early shot

    Coach Hamilton puts his keepers through their paces as he implements drills for warm-ups, drills to improve techniques, and games apply those skills at full speed. The goalkeepers demonstrate how to improve handling through rebounds, reactions, and challenging the shooter. They also demonstrate drills to improve extension diving, stretching your range out past the goal posts.

    Before each training segment, Coach Hamilton breaks down the drills and clearly explains the purpose for each one. This video also includes several competitive games that can be used with goalkeepers to reinforce and apply the drills.

    2015 NCAA Division II South Central Region Coach of the Year - the third time he's won the honor);
    7x RMAC Coach of the Year; 9x RMAC Champions (4 Tournament and 5 Regular Season titles);
    all-time winningest coach in Colorado School of Mines history

    Scoring goals is the most exciting and critical aspect of soccer. The ability to attack quickly and finish requires an aggressive pace and plenty of fitness. In this video, Colorado School of Mines' Frank Kohlenstein showcases three simple drills that do both. By keeping each drill moving and cycling players in and out quickly, he ensures players get enough touches and shooting opportunities to make for a truly effective session. By moving at a faster pace than traditional game speed, players are rewarded for playing at a high intensity, which enables them to enjoy working on their fitness.

    Kohlenstein provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show ideas on how to use the entire team to teach fitness via finishing. You'll learn to set up and teach each drill, while gaining a better understanding of how it can help players quickly improve their endurance and tactical awareness. Kohlenstein explains the teaching points he emphasizes during the games:

    • Movement off the ball to create the spaces needed to be dangerous in the attacking third.
    • Having a sense of urgency in transition is critical in the modern game
    • The technical aspects of finishing in and around the 18 yard box
    • How the use of 1-2 touch, combination play, and speed of play can be vital when going to goal to finish

    3v2, 2v1

    In the 3v2, 2v1 drill, Kohlenstein places a premium on teaching players to exploit defenses and create numerical advantages by counter-attacking quickly. In this series, fitness is achieved through fast offensive and defensive transitions, as well as the continuous pace of play from each restart. To sharpen his players' tactical awareness, Kohlenstein instructs them on how to isolate defenders and create numerical advantages quickly, making it easier to play with pace and score.

    Crossing and Finishing

    This competitive game has plenty of hidden fitness in it and works on finishing from a crossed ball. Kohlenstein teaches players how to frame the goal and bend runs to coordinate their timing, giving the crosser a chance to deliver the perfect pass. In this 4v1 opposed crossing & finishing game, the players must address multiple situations that a team faces in the final third. Finishing, technique, runs in the box, and transitions are just a few areas covered in this dynamic game that incorporates finishing from central and wide areas. This is an excellent exercise for not only your field players getting repetition after repetition, but also works your goalkeepers in a fast-paced, high-tempo drill.

    2v2 Play

    Kohlenstein plays two games of 2v2 simultaneously on the same net. This game creates many opportunities for field players to finish and trains different combinations to break down compact defenses in the final third. In the 2v2 game, players try to attack or counter quickly, creating numerical advantages and better opportunities to score. By playing two games within the same field at the same time, it creates a chaotic environment that forces athletes to communicate and think quickly. Goalies must read the most dangerous situation and react while players must be aware of possession options and when an open goal presents itself for the quick finish.

    No need to block off additional practice time for fitness training! Learn how to incorporate both fitness and finishing in a dynamic, game-like environment courtesy of Coach Kohlenstein.

    Good teams can possess the ball, great ones turn possession into a dangerous weapon. Developing a quality possession game requires more than counting consecutive passes - there needs to be a directional objective. In this video, Frank Kohlenstein shows you how to implement drills and games that teach possession with a purpose, giving your team the ability to turn any offensive possession into an opportunity for attack.

    Coach Kohlenstein provides in-depth illustrations on a white board and on the field to show you how to design drills and activities that teach players to maintain possession. He explains the teaching points he emphasizes during the games:

    • The movement and supporting angles needed from supporting players
    • Runs that trigger other runs when moving the ball down the field
    • The runs and gaps that your attacking players needs to make to penetrate

    6v2 E Style

    Adapted from Everton Football Club, Kohlenstein demonstrates a 6v2 drill that places all players in a 12x7 yard box, divided in half by cones. This small sided game lays the basic foundation to his team's ability to keep possession and move the ball with a purpose. Players develop a good sense of rhythm when passing while making sure the angles of support are correct for the ability to "penetrate."

    This drill can be an effective training tool because it teaches players to patiently look for opportunities to play longer passes behind the defenders. In order to enhance the intensity of this drill, Coach Kohlenstein provides three progressions that will challenge your players throughout the session.

    Rado Rondo

    The Rado Rondo is a twist on the traditional rondo. To play with a purpose, Kohlenstein expertly uses target players on each end line and one across a mid-line within the grid to link up with the attacking team. The goal for the attacking team is to pass and move quickly, scoring by passing the ball to the target on the opposite side of the grid. By using the target players to create a numerical advantage, the offensive team can retain possession while looking for open lanes to connect the longer scoring passes.

    This 3v3+3 rondo is not only directional in nature, but functional because it can be adapted based on your system and style of play. The drill teaches players to combine and play off certain players to penetrate. It's during these games that Kohlenstein's focus changes more to the decision-making and supporting angle of the players off the ball.

    8v8+2

    In the third drill, Coach Kohlenstein shows how he develops his teams to have a purpose in possession on a larger scale using this 8v8+2 small sided game. By breaking the field up in three zones, he shows a methodical way of teaching this topic based on where players are on the field. Players try to keep possession of the ball and move through the different thirds of the pitch while trying to score. Throughout the game, Kohlenstein explains the decisions players must think about when in certain thirds.

    Every coach must teach their team how to be dangerous in possession. Coach Kohlenstein shows you ideas for how to train your team to have a purpose when you have possession!

    Midfielders are one of the more important positions in the game and need to constantly support and help their teammates.

    In this video, Brandon Koons shows you how he trains the technical application of individual skills for midfielders to dominate the center of the field. You will learn how important it is to have the correct body shape, timing of runs, proper decision making, and the right attitude to excel.

    Coach Koons breaks up this video into three keys areas. Within each, he breaks down and shows numerous progressions that will help your team be dangerous in the midfield. Coach Koons provides in-depth illustrations both on a white board and on the field to show key technical elements for your players. Coach Koons explains the teaching points he emphasizes during the exercises:

    • The movement and supporting angles needed from supporting players.
    • Reading the play and making the proper decisions based on positioning.
    • Runs that trigger other runs in the midfield third.
    • The importance of scanning and checking your shoulder for better vision.

    Turning

    Koons addresses the ability to turn in a dynamic setting by demonstrating a three-man unopposed passing pattern that lays the foundation to his team's ability to turn and play forward. The emphasis in this drill is on developing a good sense of rhythm when passing and making sure the angles of support are correct. He progresses by adding additional ways to be able to turn and face up the opposition.

    Watch as Coach Koons walks his team through dealing with overweighted passes and how the center middies take pace off the ball to make a successful turn and pass. Conversely, see how to deal with an underweighted pass. The benefits of proper body positioning and an awareness of the playing environment are also discussed.

    Passing and Dribbling

    Koons walks through a series of passing and dribbling progressions that encourage good on-ball and off-ball movement. Throughout the progressions, he encourages ball movement through an emphasis on creativity, which is supported by communication, touch quality, an understanding of run shape, and an awareness of game space.

    Overlapping

    Learn a great progression to work on tight overlapping runs and how the center midfielder moves and interacts within a confined area. See how Koons teaches his players the different types of runs they can make to not only create space for themselves, but also the ability to combine and find third man runners. Throughout the unopposed exercises, he continues to stress how important off the ball movement can be to rip even the most compact defenses apart in a competitive environment.

    The overlapping drills build on the prior drills in this video and are a good way to tie the session together.

    Although designed for the center midfielder, these drills will benefit players of any position, including goalies. Koons does a great job detailing the drills on a whiteboard and then taking it to the field. Every coach must teach their team how to skillfully play through the midfield, and Coach Koons gives you the tools to do just that - and more!

    Games at the highest level are won or lost in the midfield third, and coaches are always seeking the upper hand to dominate this key area. Your midfield players must possess the technical skill to be able to expose the spaces in front, behind, and in the flanks of the opposition.

    Brandon Koons demonstrates a series of small-sided games he uses to build exceptional midfield players, which has made his teams an attacking threat en route to 13 conference titles. Coach Koons breaks up this video into six keys games. Within each game, he breaks down and shows numerous progressions that will help your team be dangerous in the midfield.

    Using in-depth illustrations, both on a white board and on the field, Koons explains the teaching points he emphasizes during the exercises:

    • The movement and angles needed from supporting players.
    • Reading the play and making proper decisions based on positioning to find numbers-up situations.
    • What runs trigger other runs to penetrate going forward.
    • The importance of scanning and checking your shoulder for better vision.
    Turning

    Center midfielders need to practice the critical skill of turning, as well as connecting right-to-left and back-to-front. Watch as Coach Koons sets up a series of small sided games that focus on quick ball movement in a small space. These transition games teach players how to defend in a frantic environment as well as how to counterattack quickly when winning the ball. The progressions build these games up from an individual focus to a team focus to drive home the concept.

    Passing and Dribbling

    See how space manipulation within the small-sided games determines the speed and quality of passing and dribbling required for the center midfielder to control the game. These games force players to perform under controlled defensive pressure and be aware of maximizing the space available to play in. The fast and chaotic pace of these transition games forces players to be very aware of how the game develops in order to be successful.

    Awareness

    All of the small sided games presented by Coach Koons are excellent training methods to help develop field awareness. These games involve constant movement within a quick and ever-changing environment. In addition to building on individual skills, these games develop knowing where players are within the game and how they're impacting it. These games tie the technical, tactical, and cognitive skills of the center midfielder together.

    Small Sided Games

    The games presented on this video include:

    • North, South, East, West - The emphasis in this physical and psychologically-demanding game is on developing transition. As the game progresses in numbers, the angles of support are critical to maintain possession and build.
    • End Zone Game - This is where Coach Koons trains players to evaluate the spaces and options given to them by the defenders. It's during this game that Koons stresses which balls to play based on straight or angles runs and how important verbal and non-verbal communication can be in the midfield.
    • Double End Zone Game - Here, Koons teaches players to play off a forward's feet and what runs can be made off of it to be dangerous. He reiterates the importance of the different types of runs his players can make to not only create space for themselves, but also the ability to combine and find third-man runners.
    • The Mourinho Game - In this game, players are always on their toes and ready to not only take advantage of numbers-up situations, but also to delay and defend based on the coach's command. Based on what number the coach calls, certain players have to quickly change which field they are playing on to sprint and quickly assess the situation on the next field of play.
    • Four Goal Game - Coach Koons introduces how to create numbers-up situations with the player on the ball. During the five different progressions in this game, players are able to experience different situations on how to penetrate through playing off a target player, through balls, and the runs coming out of the midfield to create third man runs.

    Through the use of small area games and space manipulation, see how to help your players become effective and efficient at ball movement. Using these competitive transition games from Coach Koons, you'll be able to teach your team how individual skills benefit team play.
