with Dan Donigan, St. Louis University Head Men's Soccer Coach.
In only four seasons, Dan Donigan has quickly established himself as one of the bright young coaching stars in NCAA Division I men's soccer. In this DVD he presents transitions and possession. Eight transition areas are covered throughout this presentation, including offensive and defensive transition, activities, purpose and using the goalkeeper. Coach Donigan feels that a transition occurs all over the field, all the time, so players must be aware and ready to react. Other important keys are tactical awareness, support around the ball, number of passes and spacing of players. In a series of transition clips, each element of transition is highlighted. Donigan details many drills with the purpose of simulating game situations, helping players see the big picture and developing habits and instincts. Drills are also explained for increasing awareness of possession. As an added bonus, Donigan also discusses his philosophy on training goalkeepers. He describes how to incorporate goalkeepers into the entire team building process to increase their confidence and to help make your team stronger. This detailed DVD covers one of soccer's most influential topics. Because soccer is a game of transition, your team can excel when changing from offensive to defense and visa versa.
