2v2 Emphasizing the 2nd Defender with Alan Yost, Capital University Head Men’s Soccer Coach;
coached Capital to their first NCAA Tournament victory in school history (2017);
NSCAA Premier Diploma holder (highest diploma offered through the NSCAA); associate staff coach for the NSCAA;
Alan Yost and his Capital men’s soccer team qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 2017 and became the first team in program history to win a game in the tournament. Yost’s 5-3-2 defensive formation contributed to his team’s success thanks to its ability to quickly take advantage of the counterattack.
This video from Coach Yost will help you teach your players to be successful in the 5-3-2 through a series of drills and games that focus on the technical and tactical buildup of the formation. Yost includes play diagramming and game highlights to help illustrate each teaching point he makes. The 5-3-2 is especially effective at keeping the opponent out of your critical scoring areas while enabling an effective counterattack through transition to finish.
We are providing this drill to give you ideas on how to enhance your current practice drills. The idea is not to implement it exactly as is, but rather to tweak it to make it fit your system.
There is sound with the video, so please make sure that your sound is on.
