Shielding Opposed Practice (15 mins)

Shielding Opposed Practice

2 boxes 15y by 15y. 3 attackers with 1 ball each, 1 defender and one outside player.

REINFORCE THE COACHING POINTS MENTIONED IN THE PREVIOUS EXERCISE.

The players in the middle with a ball are looking to shield the soccer ball so the defender (blue) cannot get the ball. If the defender thinks they are going to lose they can pass it to the outside the player, they will then swap positions (outside players can move anywhere on the the outside). If the defender wins the ball and keeps it, the attacker who lost the ball will become the defender. Swap the defenders regularly and the outside players if they are not involved.

Progression/Adaptation

- 2 defenders, 2 attackers, 1 outside player

- Players on the outside have to do 10 toe taps before they can receive a ball from a middle player.

Play for 15 Minutes
