Defensive Heading Game (15 mins)

Defending Game - Heading Practice

Setup - Mark out a pitch about 35 x 20 yards, although the size can be adjusted to suit the age and

ability of the players. The pitch should have two goals, with goalkeepers. Play a 2 – 1 – 1

formation. It is a free game but the coach should build in some sort of tactical shape to the

game but allow the players to rotate where required.

There are six servers with footballs, located around the perimeter of the pitch and numbered.

The servers can move up and down their areas to provide different angles and heights of

crosses and balls into the defensive area.

Encourage free play and the team in possession can pass the ball to any of the servers and the

defensive team must then adjust and organise for the thrown cross. If the ball goes out of play,

the coach can also call the number of a server and an area for the ball to be thrown into. The

defensive team then adjusts and organises to the serve into their area.

Coaching Points - 1. Communication between defenders and GK

2. Defenders work as a unit, one attacking the ball, the others providing cover

3. Start position in relation to where the ball is served from

4. Get in the line and attack the ball down the line of the cross

5. Timing of run and jump

6. Select relevant defensive heading technique

7. Protect the goalkeeper if they come for the cross

8. After defensive header, readjust and reorganise

9. Squeeze up the pitch if possible after the ball has been headed clear
