Defensive Heading and 1v1 (15 mins)

Individual Practise - Defensive Heading & 1v1 - 15 mins

Organisation

In 20 x 10yd box, group of five players.

Player in white is working.

1) Player 1 throws underarm for defensive header

2) Player 2 throws underarm, behind white player, who must back track and complete header

3) When header has taken place, player 3 attacks white player in 1v1 situation and try to score in mini goal. If white player wins the ball he must find spare player on end line

Rotation

- Players move one station after two reps

Coaching Points

1st header - body position (3/4 turn) / move feet / step back to then move forward to attack the ball at your highest point / distance and height on headers

2nd header - move feet quickly / head ball up and adjust position

1v1 defending - show attacker away from goal (body position) / pressure on the ball / chest between goal and ball / patience (make attacker beat you)
