TRFC (PDP) Pressing in Small Groups (10 mins)

Practice organisation

• Area 30x18yds area with 5yd channels at each end

of practice area, as illustrated.

• 18 players organised in 3’s as shown.

• Supply of balls, with coach.

• Groups of 3 are 5yds apart, facing opposition

on either end of area.

• Practice starts with: ball fed-in by coach to one

team who proceed to attack opponents 3v3 & move the ball

(under control) into opponents’ end zone to score.

Detail

• Pressing distance, stance & balance.

• Support distance, depth, angle & team balance.

• Tracking runners whilst maintaining eye-contact

with ball & developing play.

• Defending against wall-passes & movement of A’s.

• Simple progressions for this practice are:

- Add 1 player on each side line to assist team in possession &

increase potential to make wall-passes.

- Add T in opponent’s end zone to play into & receive a return pass

before entering end zone: this increases need for D’s to consider

screening passes to T.

- Service from the coach is varied:

a) Throw the ball in the air

b) Roll the ball in slowly

c) Roll the ball to slightly favour one team

Key coaching points

• Early decision to attack or defend.

• Take personal responsibility for opponent when deciding to defend.

• Press, cover, support & track opponents.

• Concentration & managing player inter-changes

of position, as a unit of three.

Defensive play whilst ‘in balance’
