1v1 working on defensive footwork

Defensive 1v1: Medium Pressure

Player 1 plays into Player 2

Player 2 dribbles towards the cone

Player 3 gets in between cone and dribbles and forces 1 direction (look at footwork)

Player 3 needs to be on the surfboard switching feet as the dribbler goes to 1 side.

Player 3 needs to tackle the ball, not dive or stab at the ball

***FOCUS on taking the ball with a step and hip roation using arms to get between the ball and the dribbler

This is a good example https://youtu.be/c1S5sVxOTSA?t=3m2s

If Player 3 wins the ball they need to transition to find the small goal
