U7 - U9 Ball Mastery: Shielding

Organisation:

Players work in teams of 2 to beat the two defenders one a time.

Player A dribbles the ball into the first shaded area (5x5m)

They must protect the ball from the defender for at least 3 seconds.

Player B looks for a square pass and takes the ball into the second shaded area and again must shield the ball for at least 3 seconds.

Player B then plays the square pass to Player A who must finish 1st time.

If the ball is played out of the grid or lost in possession to the defenders those pairings return to the end and is the trigger for the next pairing.

Coaching Points:

Practice should be done at speed.

Correct body position with the body always between the ball and the defender when inside the defender's area.

Passes should be a good weight and infront of the supporting player to ensure speed in attack.
