1v1 Defending

Organisation:

-Players in groups of 3

-Ball per group

-10 yards apart

-Area 20x10 per group.

.

Aim:

Player A passes into Player B. Player C closes down and tries to win the ball or force Player B back towards Player A. Player B tries to get past Player C and dribble over the end line.

.

Rules:

-Player C can't start to close down until Player A passes the ball

-Keep swapping Player C after 3 attempts

.

Coaching Points - Player C:

-Get there quickly/early to prevent opposition player turning to face you

-Slow down upon approach so opponent doesn't take a quick touch past you

-Get touch-tight...opponent needs to feel under pressure...not allowed to turn and face you

-When to tackle...can you delay until the time is right to pinch the ball

-Be aggressive...use body strength to force opponent backwards...do not allow them to do whatever they want with the ball...especially turn and face you

.

If opponent manages to turn and face you:

-sideways + low

-force in one direction with body position

-jockey and delay until time is right to pinch the ball
