Congratulations on your continued commitment to your players. You're teaching them so much.

In this second section, we'll shift our focus to the tactical skills that a striker uses to create scoring opportunities in game situations. A striker must be ready at any moment to execute any number of moves and techniques to get his defender off balance and to exploit gaps in the defense. Players should take advantage of these lessons to begin building a 'tool set' of moves and techniques that they can use to attack the goal from different locations on the field.  Strikers must also understand how to utilize their teammates to setup scoring chances and how to maximize runs and passes. Remember that it takes time to develop these tactics and underlying skills. Players should take advantage of the drills and training materials included in this section to improve their level of play as successful strikers.
