In a 2v2 and 3v2 situation, looking for defenders to communicate, when to hand over, when to press and when to sit back.

1v1 Defending (10 mins)

Set up -

Area - 24yds x 12yds. (Halfway line at 12yds)

Server in middle with balls, one defending on side resting.

1 defender in middle working for 1 minute, then rotate.

Start up-

Server passes ball into red player 1 who looks to take on defender. Once player 1 has taken on defender or dribbled past line, he can pass to player 2 at other end. If defender wins possession back before player has passed, server automatically passes ball in to opposite end man, so defender is constantly working.

Once player has either passed successfully or been tackled, they must jog and join back of opposite line.
