  7. Great coaching points: great coaching session, Coach Adrian, of 2 V 1 passing, through numbers-up, in midfield, right channel play. 

    However, Checking In and Checking Out to create space are needed to be drilled constantly to players.  Standing players have a tendency not to check in and check out.  At 0:52, player checks out well to receive ball from Coach.  Player did not Check In, however.

    Checking In and Checking Out create good habits. Here is why: Checking In and Checking Out are important to create time and space around the ball.

    In terms of space creation, the generic terminology is:

    o Checking into space toward your opponent and checking Out from space, away from your opponent to receive the ball.  Checking into space, you pull your marker away from ball, attacker creates space to receive/touch.

    o Checking Out from space, you come to receive ball, space is again sustained, hopefully you lost your marker.

    One common fault by young players on checking-in and Checking-Out tactics, however, is that they drag the defender with them too close toward the ball.  If this occurs, Space and Time are again restricted.

    To lose the marker, in order to maintain space, time, and show support are important to teach immediately. B-Licensed.
