Attacking under/ overloads are an important part of the modern game. These two fast paced training drills will help to give your team the edge.
-Set up the area as above suiting the needs of your players and numbers available.
-The 4 blues attack the 3 whites making it an overload 4v3.
-If they score they then turn round and try to score in the other goal which is now an under load 4v5.
-If the whites win the ball they must try and play the ball to the opposite whites and the blues continue attacking the opposite goal.
-This continues for a period of time, turns, goals etc.
-Change the personnel.
-Change the numbers
-Attack one goal adding more realism.
-Set up the area as above. It can obviously be 7v7, 9v9 etc.
-Normal game with normal rules.
-The coach walks around during the game and at any time he/she can throw a ball in to the game looking for overloads.
-As soon as the coach introduces the new ball, the previous ball is dead.
-The team who receives this pass must attack the goal as quickly as possible.
-Work on overloads in different thirds of the pitch.
-Distribute ball to even numbers or under loads.
-Look at this as an opportunity focus on recovery runs etc.
