Defensive Stance Part 2 (15 mins)

Defensive players are shaddowing only, not tackling

(discus that "tackling" means taking the ball)

Offensive players will dribble forward diagonally to the cone infront of the white cone, defender will shaddow with a shuffle step, apon reaching the other side they will move to the other side. When they are done they jog back to the beginning and switch positions.

Repeat 6 times, 3 times for both positions.

Always remember to teach why we do something not just how to do it.

In this case the shuffle step is use because crossing the legs/feet will leave the defender vulnerable to a quick change of direction. This is delaying defesive tactic and will be used thoughout a match

8v8 scrimmage (20 mins)

During scrimamge watch for defensive technique.

If a defender dives prior to delaying they must run a lap around the JV & V boys field. Time their lap, subsiquent players who run a lap must beat that time or run 1 more.

Be hard on them, hold them to the delay shuffle step and only tackle when there is a mistep or blocking a shot or pass.

They cannot dive!

If one player continues to dive, pull them off to the side and demonstrate the proper technique again. Then film them in a 1v1 and show them with your phone or the ipad
