1v1 Tran. Perpendicular (10 mins)

Set Up: Set up with goals perpendicular to each other. Gkers in both goals. Divide the group into two teams.

Instructions: The attacker in blue goes to goal trying to score. At the same time, the defender in red makes a quick curved run to defend against the attacker. Immediately after any attempt at goal, the blue attakcer becomes a defender going against the next red player (2). The red attacker goes to goal at pace to take advantage of the space in front of him or her. Once that attack is finished, the red attacker immediately becomes a defender agaiinst the next blue attacker.

If the defender wins the ball, he or she looks to play into one of the targets as efficiently as possible. The next attacker cannot go until this part of the play has finished. The player who lost possession needs to try to win the ball back and go to goal or to at least prevent the defender from scoring in the target.

Coaching Points: Attack at speed. Be conscientious of the next development as an attacker and try not to get yourself out of balance so you can't defend in time. Transition to defending immediately upon completion of the attack. When attacking, take advantage of the space in front of you and know where the defender is coming from. Monitor the work to rest ratio and ensure that this is appropriate for the training phase.
