Covers three methods for teaching soccer tactics in attacking play: coaching in the game methodology, progressive soccer methodology and small sided soccer games to teach tactics.
Coaching in the game methodology teaches how to develop a team's attacking tactical understanding using a 6v6 format. Includes very active play and start positions for maximum touches on the ball to simulate the reality of moving from one third of the field to another.
The progressive methodology section begins with possession games and moves all the way to a realistic soccer game with two large goals with goalkeepers. Uses 4v2 to teach penetrating passes, and 5v3 to teach changing the point of attack. Teaches coaches to move the training of attacking tactics from simple to complex and from clarity to reality.
In the small-sided games section, coaches learn how to design and implement free flowing and realistic games for teaching attack- penetration, possession, runs off the ball and where and when to run off the ball.
