Description

Focus: Affecting the player's decision when pressure (and cover) are tight, and the player receiving the ball does not have time to turn and face the opposition.

Amount of Pressure: Two defenders - Pressure and Cover.

Type of Pressure: Tight. Unable to turn and face opposition. Pressure angles body appropriately, and "Cover" supports at a good distance.

Decisions looking to affect:

1. Ability to identify amount of pressure being applied to the ball, as the player receives it.

2. Choice to open up on the back foot - closer to the opponent, or receive the ball on the front foot to protect the ball and shield it away from the defender.

3. Recognition of the second defender. Is the second defender in a good spot to cover the first defender if I beat him/her? If so, do I have a supporting player I can pass the ball to?

4. Mentality after passing the ball. Can you quickly signal to your teammate for a Give and Go to get around the defender, or support their run and prepare yourself for the cross?

6. Execution of move.

7. Execution of next action - pass/shot.

Progressions / Regressions:

(P1) - If I can't open up on my back foot and play to the target right away how can I get around him/her without losing possession of the ball? Give and Go.

(P2) - Blue Grid: 2v1. If the defender wins the ball and plays back to the his/her endline player they may attack.  On the transition from offense to defense one of the players must quickly apply pressure, the second defender may be added.  If so, defender will have to run around the goal and make a recovery run prior to defending. Goal is to speed up the decisions of the attackers with the ball.

(R1) - Allow players to practice technical and rotation of activity before adding in the defender
