Session 17 - 21

SESSION: attacking overloads

    FA lead national specialist coach, Aaron Danks, works on creating and exploiting attacking overloads with a group of U18 academy players.

    These sessions are currently for reflection purposes only and any current activity taking place must follow government and FA guidelines.

    Key objectives

    Develop player understanding of:

    • varied finishing techniques
    • clever supporting runs to exploit attacking overloads
    • self organisation and ownership.

    ​1v1 and 2v1 attacking 


    Utilising attacking overloads


    Finishing in tight areas



    After watching the session, please answer the following questions:

    • How would you adapt or tweak the practice to make it appropriate for your own players?
    • What additional challenges could you set to make the practices easier or harder for individuals in your group?
