Defending Technique (10 mins)

Organization:

-all players

A short, technical warm-up to get the players thinking about their body shape and movements when defending, focusing on the ball, and some agility and footwork. Have players pair up and work across the defined area. Coaches float and guide when needed.

1. Both players are passive.

2. Attacker looks to dribble from one endline to the other without trying to beat his partner.

3. Defender looks to keep attacker in front without trying to win the ball.

4. Players work on one side going one way and switch sides going back.

5. Players rotate roles once back at the start.

Progressions:

1. Attacker looks to move more "actively," changing feet forcing defender to change with him.

Coaching Points:

-Keep the attacker in front.

-Proper body shape

-Eyes on the ball.

-Move/shuffle feet.

-Maintain appropriate distance - arm's length.
