Marking & Intercepting

Practice Orgainsation

*Concurrent practices (both running at the same time) – both unopposed to start

*Players on the outside of the practice pass ball to each other – attackers can move freely to seek to lose the attentions of the defenders

*Mark ball side and goal side of your opponent and be close enough to your opponent so that if ball were played to them you would be able to apply pressure

Progression

1. Outside players can pass into forwards who control and play back to any outside player.

2. As per first practice but outside players can play into 2 vs. 2 whenever they choose.
