Description

Driving at defender (commit them)

Observation of defenders position! What are they giving you?

Technical application – outside of foot (better angle of pass) keeps out of defenders radius

Defenders body shape? Flat, then nutmeg is on

Movement of support player, overlap?

Is the dribbling player dictating the movement or is the support player?!

Same as previous. 4 players. 1 ball.

Instructions:

All players begin down the centre line of the area. B begins by checking to get free from defender. Start with semi-opposed defender, then full pressure in Progression 2.

Coaching Points:

(1). Open body shape to receive.

(2). Communication "feet" - Show front foot with hand (protect ball)

(3). Checking of shoulder as they open gap and as ball travels (read movement of defenders / attackers)

(4). Decision making based on location of defender

Option 1- Check shoulder and can you open up back foot to play to C?

Option 2- Is defender tight and denying the turn? Play back to A who plays to C.

(5). Pass to the front foot or back foot

(6). Timing and quality of movement

Progressions: (40 seconds per round). High intensity so use coaching points during stoppages.

(1). Semi-opposed. Players get used to checking shoulder and open body shape to receive. Switch middle players until full rotation achieved and everyone has been defender.

(2). Opposed- Full pressure and no restrictions of the defender. Rotate all the way through again.
