CROSSING 

Crossing Drill


The Game

  • Designate a "channel" on each side of the field.
  • One player from each team is allowed to go into the channel.
  • If the ball is played into the channel, the player can dribble, without being defended, and serve the ball into the box.
  • Progress by allowing the "server" to defend in the channel, but, at the same time, allow a teammate to support inside the channel as well.



Coaching Points

  • Proper technique of crossing.
  • Timing of runs into the box.
  • Defensive heading: Head high, far and wide.
  • Attacking heading: head down on goal.
