Functional Warm-up:

 

Defensive Footwork in Pairs

- Half the players w/ balls and half without

- Player on the ball moves around and dribbles and defenders have to shadow/defend the player dribbling passively.

1v2/2v2 Defending

 

- P1 passes out to A1 and then goes to defend while A2 alos steps out creating a 1v2. P2 would drop back to bcome the GK.

- If P1 wins the ball from either A1 or A2 they must play back to P2 who is GK & P1 & P2 then attack in transition creating a 2v2 game going the other way.

 

 

Coaching Points:

- Close the distance/space

- Cut off 1 option (Angle shutdown) ***Force outside always

- Quick footwork

- Eyes on the ball/ Low to the ground

- Hands/Arms out - (Engage the attacker)

- Front foot vs. back foot when steping into win ball
