Soccer Kick off Question


I am looking for a recommendation for the "kick-off" for a U10 girls travel team. We currently have the center forward short pass to one of the wings who sends it as far as she can into the corner then we run after it. But if we don't execute, we're constantly dealing with a fast break coming back towards our own goal.

Can you help?



Hi Matt,

I recommend having your strongest kicker just kick it deep to the corner, push up and try to force a turnover in your Attacking Third. You can have your Forwards overload to that side if you want. A lot of college and even women's pro and national teams are doing this kick-off now. This will solve your problem. Think about it: Isn't it the best thing to do?
