Center Back Training 2v2 with Small Goals and a Keeper (20 mins)

Functional Training for Center Backs

30x20 Space

Keeper Chips or drives the ball to one of the forwards

Centerbacks must start inside the 18 yard box

For the first few sequences have the attackers play the ball back and forth to work on defensive positioning prior to attacking

Use Freeze stops to show and teach defensive positioning

When defenders win possession they need to shoot on small goals within 1-2 touches

This encourages center backs to clear the ball out and up as well as finding their teammates

Progression*

Encourage attackers to use overlaps, through balls and try and play 2v1 in space creating imbalances

If defenders hold position encourage attackers to shoot from distance.

Keeper communication is really important here
