When watching the elite attacking sides it’s tempting to marvel at their devastating attacking style. You might think that without their technical skills your team will never be able to score goals like they do. But while elite teams are, indeed, blessed with highly skilled players, swift free flowing attacking moves don’t happen by accident. It occurs as a result of players endlessly repeating attacking moves on the practice pitch so they know where to play the ball and where they need to be to receive it.
Dutch Shooting and Finishing provides you with the same drills you’d see being practiced by Manchester United, Barcelona, Ajax and other elite sides. The drills in this special video series can develop the awareness, passing technique and finishing of players at every level, whether you coach an amateur side or professional players. This is because, no matter what level you play at, shooting and finishing accurately doesn’t happen by accident. It happens from practice.
Presented by a coach with international training experience, Dutch Shooting and Finishing provides a complete coaching seminar you can use to develop your team’s attacking prowess so they can terrify opposition defenses and smash the ball into their net more often.
In 1985, Jan Pruijn became the coach of De Treffers from Groesbeek, with whom he won the championship in the Zondag Hoofdklasse C league three times. In 1991 Pruijn then joined N.E.C. and coached them for three seasons, winning promotion to the Eredivise league and reaching the KNVB Cup Final in 1994.
Wishing to broaden his experience, Pruijn took a step into management. His first management role was at his former club De Treffers for a year before spending a season at Helmond Sport.
After two seasons as a manager, Pruijn went back into coaching, consulting clubs, including Real Sociedad, FC Porto, FC Basel and some English sides, on how to improve their coaching programs.
Pruijn then decided to use his coaching expertise to setup youth camps in the United States, followed by stints as a youth coach in Lebanon and back in Holland, with AFC Ajax, VV Venray and Al Ain FC.
During his time at Ajax Pruijn’s coaching talents were used to develop the club’s international youth system, with posts at academies in Ghana, Belgium and South Africa to establish the coaching structure in the ‘Ajax-way’. His involvement with the club then led to his current appointment as technical director at Ajax Cape Town, South Africa.
Jan carries a full coaching badge from the Royal Dutch Soccer Federation (KNVB), enabling him to coach at any professional level throughout the world.
Dutch Shooting and Finishing provides a complete series of drills focused on developing the mindset and technique for getting the ball into dangerous positions around the box. During the session the drills grow in complexity and intensity to make sessions progressively more challenging for players.
Pruijn begins the session with a simple warmup. Players have one touch to layoff the ball while the player running in shoots on goal. The drill is then developed with players making square passes to the left or right for an additional player to attack the goal. This progression demonstrates one of Pruijn’s core attacking principles of making three passes before shooting.
The session progresses again with players asked to play the ball backwards before it is played into space for attacking players to run onto. This drill helps players to become more aware and familiar with where the ball is going to be played from behind them.
Pruijn then adjusts the drill to feature a more obvious example of triangular passing, which is a core feature of a 4-3-3 midfield. The drill also includes passes across the goalmouth to improve reactions and finishing. A defender is also added to raise intensity and the competitiveness.
The drill is then progressed to include an additional defender for a 2v2 situation, with one player chasing the attackers and the other running out from the goalmouth. Passing accuracy, consequently, becomes more important, with players running onto a layoff pass before shooting.
The session then ends with the ball played out wide before being crossed to the back post, first along the ground and through the air. As with all the previous drills, the focus is on building familiarity with where to play the ball and when to create shooting opportunities and goals.
When watching the world’s elite attacking sides it can look as though they are inventing new passing moves with each attack.
