This is a progression to now add in now a live defender

For the attacking team to score a point they must be able to play the ball into the 3rd line, without the defender winning the ball.

Restrictions:

-All attacking players are on 2 touch maximum

-Defender is live but their movement is restricted to be only able to play side to side. Look to block the pass, but not tackle

Coaching Points:

-Can we look to play through the lines into the 3rd line as a first option, without forcing it.

-Movement off the 2nd line to create a passing lane or a angle/line to receive the ball

-If pressure is loose on the 2nd line (passing lane to the 3rd target has been blocked), look to receive on back foot and play the pass with the alternate foot. However, this may change due to the recovery pressure of the defender.

-Patience with the shape to maintain options for player in possession

Progressions:

-Play is now in both directions to obtain a point

-Defender is able to move in all directions, if they win the ball they score a point by dribbling across a counter line.
