2010 NCAA D-III National Champions; 2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year;
ranks third all-time among NCAA women's soccer coaches at all levels in career winning percentage (.868); 8x American Southwest Conference Coach of the Year; 11x American Southwest Conference champions (including 10 in a row); over 230 career wins; NCAA Record 145 game conference unbeaten streak

2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year Marcus Wood delivers 10 fast-paced, game-like practice drills to improve your team's ability to score goals. These exercises will increase your players' speed of play and help them better understand their positioning and their role on the field in attacking situations.

These drills provide training for:

  • Transition - Teach your players to attack with a numbers advantage.
  • Crossing and Finishing - Train players to make quality runs and to frame the goal to improve your scoring chances.
  • Individual Attacking - Encourage your strikers to take on their defender and finish with a quick shot on goal.
  • Pattern Play - Choreograph options and patterns that occur as the ball leaves your keeper's hands.
Coach Wood lays out the dimensions of the playing space for each activity, provides key coaching points for running them and delivers insight into how a coach can tailor them to complement their particular playing style.

These activities not only provide many goal scoring opportunities, but they can also be used to train your goalkeeper. Since the drills are oriented to goal scoring they will place your keepers in situations that they will need to excel at during a game.

These drills will allow your athletes to "play soccer" and to more easily transfer what they learn in practice into a game. Order now and discover creative exercises to challenge your players and energize your attack!

Circuit Training and Conditioning with the Ball

with Marcus Wood, Hardin-Simmons University Head Women's Soccer Coach;
2010 NCAA D-III National Champions; 2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year;
ranks third all-time among NCAA women's soccer coaches at all levels in career winning percentage (.868); 8x American Southwest Conference Coach of the Year; 11x American Southwest Conference champions (including 10 in a row); over 230 career wins; NCAA Record 145 game conference unbeaten streak

Add a ball, competition and fun to your soccer conditioning!

2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year Marcus Wood demonstrates over 20 drills that will simultaneously develop technical skills and physical fitness. Wood demonstrates 19 "station drills" that can be combined to create a conditioning circuit and two additional drills that include the entire team.

Each drill combines a technical component such as ball control, dribbling, shooting or passing with conditioning elements such as plyometric bounding exercises for ACL injury prevention, speed ladder exercises that improve agility and footwork, change of direction drills, sprints for aerobic conditioning, and more. Also included are drills that will get your goalkeepers involved and present them with game-like challenges.

Many of the drills can be adjusted to the skill level and conditioning level of your players and to make them more competitive to increase the intensity. This kind of flexibility will also allow you to develop an effective work-to-rest ratio during fitness training to get the most out of your players.

Players get bored with the same conditioning exercises over and over again. Coach Wood gives you a plethora of exercises that will change-up your normal conditioning practice and keep your players more focused and motivated.

Game Winning Strategies for Attacking and Defending Set Pieces

with Marcus Wood, Hardin-Simmons University Head Women's Soccer Coach;
2010 NCAA D-III National Champions; 2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year;
ranks third all-time among NCAA women's soccer coaches at all levels in career winning percentage (.868); 8x American Southwest Conference Coach of the Year; 11x American Southwest Conference champions (including 10 in a row); over 230 career wins; NCAA Record 145 game conference unbeaten streak

Set pieces play a critical role in soccer. They are the only thing that we can predict will happen in every game yet most coaches do not spend much time on them in practice and consequently miss game-changing opportunities.

Using game film to demonstrate numerous scenarios, Marcus Wood takes several different situations and presents a plan of attack and a defense you can use in those situations.

  • Attacking and Defensive Corner Kicks - Identify the possible runs you can make and how to best frame and attack the goal on a corner kick. Wood provides strategies for positioning your bigs and littles, how to play to your players' strengths, and what you can do to improve your chances to make a play on a second ball - both offensively and defensively.
  • Direct and In-Direct Kicks - Coach Wood explains the basic concept to attack a free kick using the concept of "heels on toes."
  • Throw-Ins - Coach Wood illustrates possible runs as you are the attacking team taking a throw-in.
  • Goalkeeping - See how to stay compact as well as stay spread for any options toward or from the keeper.
Soccer is such a free flowing game that when you can practice something that you know will happen in the game you will increase your chances of success.

Improving Performance Through Match Analysis

with Marcus Wood, Hardin-Simmons University Head Women's Soccer Coach;
2010 NCAA D-III National Champions; 2010 NSCA National Coach of the Year;
ranks third all-time among NCAA women's soccer coaches at all levels in career winning percentage (.868); 8x American Southwest Conference Coach of the Year; 11x American Southwest Conference champions (including 10 in a row); over 230 career wins; NCAA Record 145 game conference unbeaten streak

A lot of coaches are overwhelmed by the concept of match analysis because they are not sure what to do. What you say to improve your players' performance and what they hear are often different. A comprehensive, well planned film breakdown can clearly show your players what your want.

2010 NCAA D-III National Champioship coach Marcus Wood understands how video can be a great teaching tool for his players and gives you insight on how to turn film breakdown into an effective coaching tool on the road to success.

Watch as Coach Wood breaks down a game into a 30 minute video that he uses to teach his players the good and the bad of their performance on the field. He shares how he organizes his practice time to allow for a film session to help improve his team's system of play. This information will allow you to know what options and questions can be asked of the players when analyzing match play through the video.

Coach Wood discusses how important it is for players to understand the options they have in a soccer match and how game video can help develop that learning and transfer it to the field. You will also see how Wood grades his players and how his grading scale reflects the style of play he wants to implement.
