Coaching Drills: Tight Area
Video Series Introduction
This series focuses on 1v1 drills that incorporate a range of skill-based attacking and defending scenarios for players to improve their awareness, confidence and ability.
In this particular drill, players begin on the same side line as the coach. The ball is played to one team in a tight area. It is up to that player to get themselves out of trouble and then attack 1-v-1 to score in their designated goal. This drill tests reactions, ball control and shooting accuracy. Keep posted for future instalments!
