Defensive pressure on the ball – 2. DEVELOPMENT


PLAYERS:
SPACE:
INTENSITY:
TIME:
REPETITIONS:
REST:

Simple 1v1 exercise with coaching points for the defenders to press the ball early, deny time and space, get side on and show 1 way and if they win the ball pass into 1 of the nets in front of them to encourage an attacking transition after winning the ball – this could also be a pass into the next attacker which may help the drill flow better.

Either swap defender/attacking roles after each shot or after a certain amount of time.

Progression:

If the attackers get accross the cones line allow them to unopposed shoot in the net which is a good incentive to keep the tempo of the drill high.

Encourage the defender at the front of the line to give good information to the defender in the drill which will set the tone for 2v2 defending which we progress to next
