Skill Introduction (25 mins)

Players play through a alphabetical sequence of passes as per diagram.

The yellow players take turns in acting as defenders. Start with passive defending and slowly increase the pressure to full pressure. Defenders will obviously know what is going on so a sensible amount of pressure applied without jeopardising the drill's objective.

Coaching points

Take a couple of touches towards your next pass and away from the defender.

Use your arm to feel where the defender is

Have quick look at the defender's positioning

Progression

4 v 4 plus wide bouncers and coach.

Play starts with the coach who plays into players who are marked and in a position to shield the ball. The wide bouncers are also encouraged to play to players who are marked.

Players must take a minimum of 3 touches to encourage keeping the ball in 1 v 1 situation

Emphasise the session topic and make it a requirement that one player from the attacking team must successfully shield the ball from an opponent before their team can score.

The defending team plays possession and 6 passes equals a goal.

Rotate the attacking/defending teams every 3-4 minutes

Use your body to protect the ball from the defender

Make sure you can "feel" the defender

Scan early to see where the defender is

Try and deceive the defender with a feint or body swerve

Use your arms to keep the defender at distance from the ball

Progressions

You can't pass back to the coach

You can't play back to the same bouncer

Remove wide bouncers, play 5 v 5 starting with the coach
