WEEK 8: LAST WEEK, LAST EFFORT! LET'S C-RUSH IT!

Learning to dribble, using different surfaces of the foot. Learning to change speed and direction. Learning to engage a defender to create and find open space.  

Goal: Help players to anticipate the ball which translates to quicker decision making on the field.

“And here we are! Last week of our program. Now is time to check how much you improved after working hard and consistently through these weeks. Go through the work out early in the week and finish strong by doing the fitness test. Let us know your results! We are looking forward to knowing how you did!”

Well done everybody for we have covered three out of the four phases of the game already (attacking, transitioning from attack to defense, and defending). Let’s focus on the last one this week: Transitioning from defense to attack.

These transitional moments are super important and many times where soccer games are won and lost!

To cover this topic we are going to be analyzing Leicester City 3-1 Everton from the 2015/16 Season in which the Fearless Foxes won the Premier League. Let’s see how much you learn about it champ! Don’t forget to fill the quiz!

Be brave this week and push yourself to get better diving! Can you get in extra reps? Is one dive difficult? Spend time to learn it, perfect it, and master the skill!
