to begin with there will be 3 channels where 2 players will stand on each side. one side will start with the ball and the other side will defend. to begin all I want is the player with the ball to moderatley run with the ball towards the defender and the defenders job is just to jockey the player to the end, you dont want him to tackle yet. (4-5 minutes)

then once this has been done i want the defending player to actually attempt to make a tackle on the attacking player. this is the progression. (2 minutes)

here the players are still 1 v1 but they players with the ball can score in any goal opposite them so it makes it more difficult for the defender to make a decsion in which direction to go. to begin with i will give them 2 pts if the y win the ball back and then they will swap over. (2-3 minutes)

then for the progression i will give the defenders an oppurtunity to score, if they win the ball back and can run away and put it into any of the goals then they get 5 pts, the 2 players against each other will see who can get the most points by the end

this drill is good as it improves decsion making and postional awarness of defenders beacuse there are 3 different goals that the attacker can score in.

Small Sided game 6v6

to begin with there will be 2 zones on either side on the pitch, only 1 player from each team can go into these zones. once an attacking player has gone into this zone he cannot dribble the ball abck onto the pitch, only a pass ia available. the defender's job is to win the ball back in the zone as its 1 v 1 and if they do they win 2 pts.

for the first progression i will give the option to the defending team once they,ve won the ball back to shoot in the goal with their first touch and if they score they get 5 pts, the pitch is fairly small and this would be realistc. it would almost be creating a counter attact scenario in a football match.

for the seconf progression i will allow the player with the ball to dribble back onto to the pitch but if they choose this option they have to make sure everyone in the team has a touc of the ball before they can score, this gives the defending team more time to win the ball back and apply high pressure, but if they chose to stay in the channel they have the option of taking 1 player on and a better chance to create space and encourages more defending.
