DEFENSIVE ORGANISATION / part 2

Defensive Organisation 2

SET UP

  1. 10-15 yards in length.

  2. A & C are 3-5 yards in width.

  3. B is 10 yards in width.

  4. Four cones with a football on top halfway in zone B.

THE SESSION

  1. Team A start with the ball and pass the ball side to side at pace.

  2. Team B stand inside zone B and screen Team A's passes, constantly shuffling left & right to leave no space or gaps for B to potentially play through.

  3. Team A must try and work a space to play the ball through towards one of the cones & balls and knock the football off a cone for 1 point.

  4. After 1 minute the roles reverse with A defending against B.

  • PROGRESSION: Create overloads/underloads (4v2 etc.).

COACHING POINTS

  1. Communication between the defenders is key

  2. Tight together to leave no major gaps

  3. Shuffle at speed but effectively

  4. Pressure on the ball
