Progression & Constraints
3 v 2 Attack v Defence Overload Practice. Focus on movement and timing of forward passes to ensure there is a clear relationship and understanding between attacking players.
Progression 1: Success Constraint (increase challenge)
If defenders are successful for a certain time period to keep attacking players from getting a successful shot off (e.g. 4-6 seconds) then defenders can introduce an extra player, creating a 3 v 3 outfield situation. This increase in challenge will force attackers to attack quicker or adapt when faced with this balanced situation.
Key Coaching Points
Technical: Running with the ball at defenders and execution of pass and finish.
Tactical: Recognise space to exploit with the overload.
Physical: Speed to break lines with and without the ball.
