Push the Ball on the Fast Break!

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Tuesday, June 9, 2015

With this drill from Bucknell University head women’s coach, Randall Goldsborough, your team will learn to push the ball in transition and get a scoring opportunity quickly. Beating the defense down the field before they can get set will give players a higher chance at a goal.

Fast Times

Drill Summary: To set up, start with two opposing players at midfield, offensive and defensive players matched up on both halves of the field, and a goalie in front of each net. The drill starts with a draw at midfield. Whoever wins the draw advances the ball up the field, trying to score via a fast break or slow break on the opposing team’s goal. Play until a shot on goal or until 10 seconds have gone by, then restart at midfield.

Keys to the Drill:

1) Look for the fast break.
2) Look for the slow break.
3) Teamwork.
4) Communication.
