Exercise 1

Structure:

X1 - X4 are attacking players playing against 4 defenders. 3 of the defenders (O1-O3) face baseline while O4 is a defender tackling back.

X1 - X4 pass ball around and wide attackers lead into circle. On coaches signal the 3 defenders turn and 4th defender tackles back. Defenders have to communicate effectively with respect to who is going to be point of defence, who is marking and who is covering. If defenders win ball, they must clear through sideline goals.

Pointers:

2v1 with tackle back

Structure:

Teams are made up of two players.

Team A has to stay inside their box while defend the blue line. They start the drill by passing a ball to one of the players in team B who then has to try attack 1v2 and get over the blue line. If he succeeds then teams switch start positions, if team A tackle the ball then they attack the goals and team B try to defend the 2v1 with a tackle back.

Pointers:

Team A must stay inside of their box while defending to achieve the desired tournover.

The focus of the 2v1 should always be to defend the middle of the field and then slow the attack down so the tackle back player can be involved.

Variation:

The distance from the goal can be made great or smaller.

The drill can be played 3v3 or even 2v3.
