Make sure all your players know this simple rule, so you don’t give up easy Fast and Slow Break goals! Make the other team score their goals the hard way!
Use this common Ride to pressure the ball, force long, difficult Clearing passes for the other team, and score more exciting Goals off of Turnovers!
Use this shifting Zone Ride with your youth and high school teams to put more pressure on the Clearing Defense. Force long, cross-field passes, create more Turn Overs, and score more goals when you get the ball back!
This competitive, multipurpose drill will give every player work on Dodging, individual man-on-man Defense and experience carrying the ball under pressure. Plus, it's a great way for coaches to teach parts of the Clear and Ride, all at the same time.
