defenders work in the box. – ANIMATION 3
In this drill, the middle zone is elongated putting defenders under more responsibility earlier. The poles and cones are taken further away from the 18 yards line as the aim here is to simulate counter attacks as well.
The game starts on the whistle, the players turn around their cones and poles. The coach sends the ball behind the offside line to the forwards who now begin their attack. Thei aim is to send the ball into the middle rectangular without being intercepted. The 2 other forwards move inside forming 2 other lines where the player with the ball can pass to. The defender outside is only delaying the player with the ball and not allowed to tackle till the ball is inside the box.
1 point for forwards to get the ball into the box, and 1 extra if they manage to score. The defenders only get one point per successful defending.
