Fill your drill library with technical and tactical crossing and finishing exercises to create a goal-scorer's mentality. Richard Smith provides you with a wealth of information to help your team improve their attack through many different drills and small sided games. Each topic is coached in four stages unopposed, opposed, small side game, and expanded small side game.

These drills will place your players in many different situations--the same situations that they will encounter during a game, including:

  • Scoring goals from long range - With so many teams playing with numbers behind the ball it is harder to penetrate and get into the box, so getting goals from outside the box is now critical for team success.
  • Create goal scoring opportunities from crosses - Modern defenses are built to stop you from attacking up the middle of the field. Therefore it is important that players learn how to get behind defenses by going around them and creating goal scoring chances from the outside.
  • Score under pressure - Players need to be put into practice scenarios that replicate a realistic game situation. For scoring that means the addition of pressure.
Smith also puts his players through drills where they need to combine with their teammates to score a goal and in a 1v1 on the goalkeeper.

This DVD provides coaches with a great amount of drills and small sided games that will definitely improve a team's attack.

This DVD will give you new ideas for drills and small-sided games that are sure improve your team's attack.

Game Winning Set Pieces

with Richard Smith,
Triumph Futbol Club Director of Coaching,
USSF A, NSCAA Premier Diploma (distinguished pass), UEFA B and USSF National Youth Licenses;
1999 Coach of the Year, Challenger Sports (British soccer camps)

Set pieces are a great opportunity for teams to take advantage of a situation and come away with a goal. A team that can set up their attack quickly and communicate their intentions amongst themselves have an advantage against a defense that is scrambling to set up.

In this DVD, Richard Smith provides examples of several different ways to organize an attack when taking a free kick, corner kicks, and throw-ins and explains the reasoning behind the player positioning, the need for players to time their runs, and the need for trickery and improvisation.

Through the exclusive use of training footage, this video will effectively help you and your players identify the most common situations that can either help or hinder successful set pieces. Using this information, Coach Smith shows multiple starting points and runs that keep coaching points simple but allow your team to create dozens of effective scoring plays.

In one session, Coach Smith first shows you why the ball is most often lost on an attacking throw-in. He then clearly demonstrates how to make the most of throw-ins by creating space so that the ball can be advanced on the attack. From that point you will learn how to use quick combination play to get out of tight spaces or go directly to goal. Not only will you see ways to increase scoring opportunities, but Coach Smith shares his knowledge of defending set pieces as well.

His key coaching points include:

  • executing the proper timing and spacing of runs
  • using the proper signals to organize your set pieces during the game
  • attacking the ball in front of the goal
  • individual and team responsibilities using zonal marking
In addition, Coach Smith shows attacks that are applicable to different age groups, so you can take a free kick from this DVD and apply it directly to the age group you are coaching.

It's estimated 30% to 50% of the goals scored in professional soccer come from set pieces. No coach can ignore the opportunities set pieces provide. This DVD will provide new ideas on how you can attack on set pieces.
