BS=Black shirts, YS= Yellow shirts

BS's begin with the ball and dribble around the area.

YS's are defenders and aim to get infront of the BS's and aim to follow their run.

YS's follow the run for a few seconds before swapping over roles with the BS's.

Points to focus on:

Space gap between defender and attacker. Not too far away from one another and not too close to one another.

Defensive position. Stance like a surfer with your closest foot to the ball being the same as the attackers.

Do not criss-cross legs when travelling backwards defensively.

Progression:

Defenders can now win the ball (if it is there to do so) after they have slowed the attacker down.

Screen 2 (25 mins)

YS's begin with the ball and pass it to the BS.

Once the YS has passed the ball they can then move towards the BS aiming to slow them down as much as possible before then trying to win the ball.

Critical point of focus:

Do not get too close to the attack as well as not too far.

Defender getting into the defensive position and making it as hard as possible to get around.

Aim to slow them down as much as possible before aiming to make a tackle.
