Diagonal Attack

Diagonal Attack

Diagonal Attack is a game where players can score on two goals on adjacent end lines.

Set Up

Set up a square or rectangular soccer field with a mini goal on each of the four sides. Divide players into two teams and assign one or two players to be ‘all time offense’ neutral players.

How It Works

Each team defends two goals. Here the blue team is defending the bottom and right goals. The red team is defending the top and left goals. In order to develop passing skills, coaches can make it a requirement that teams must connect six consecutive passes before scoring. The first team to score three goals wins.

Coaching Points

The team with the ball should focus on stretching the defense out to create space and attack the goals. Player movement and communication with one another are keys to success on offense and defense.
