Tracking Back (15 mins)

The first key to defending is simply encouraging all the players to defend when they don't have the ball. Part of that is to get between the ball and the goal as quick as possible.

Coach passes the ball to A.

A dribbles toward goal and tries to score (encourage players to at least dribble to the line before shooting)

B defends as soon as the ball is passed.

Key points:

Getting into the right position to slow the attacker

Getting in front of the goal

Getting between the attacker and the goal.

Aim is for the players NOT to run straight for the goal or straight at the attacker but rather inbetween them to block their path

Good idea to do half the group at a time whilst the other half do the next dril and then swap.
