Technical Warm up- Defending (20 mins)

Get in pairs or 3-4 per line

Defending side on (forcing the attacker one direction)

-R Foot forward- Shoulders angled to force the defender left

-L Foot Forward- Shoulders angled to force the defender right

-quick feet

-Push off your front foot to move backwards (if you lean to far back you may fall down)

-The front foot keeps the attacker from cutting inside and the back foot steps to win if the attacker goes outside

Player with the ball will pass to the defenders back foot. The defender stops the ball and continues moving forward staying side on (never switch which foot is forward- it creates space for the attacker). Repeat.
