Phase of Play - Defending (high press)

Organisation

Start with an open game (always starts with GK)

Attacking team score in small goals

Defending team score normally

Attacking team have 6 passes to score once regained possession (allows lots of opportunities to press high when opposition have the ball)

Quick transition between attack and defence when winning the ball high up the pitch

Key coaching points

9 starting position (show one way - block off switch pass)

Pressure on ball - always showing outside - make it predictable

Body shape, angle of closing down

One of MF may press CB on ball - MF shift across leaving opposite MF their only option

Ball down one side, other side tuck in - 7/11 become LW or RW in a 4

9 sets the tempo of the press - if he sprints and goes after a CB - everyone lock on and go together

Start with the opposing GK at all times

When we have the ball, we have 10 seconds to score

If opposition can play through central part of pitch and score it's worth 3 goals
