Defending 1v1/Outnumbered (15 mins)

Key Factors

Recognising defensive situation (ie. 1v1, Outnumbered etc)

Strategy depending on situation

Organisation

5 defenders, 7 attackers, 3 balls in play

Attackers score points by dibbling balls through gates on side of square

Defenders score points by dribbling ball outside area, over any line

Coaching Points

If you are in balance (1v1/2v2) or overloaded in favour (2 defenders to 1 attackers), can you press ball?

If you are outnumbered, can you delay and protect goal?

When you win the ball, can you break quickley?

Re-gression

Use only 4 defenders

Each defender defends 1 goal

'Free' area in middle of pitch

4 footballs, attackers decide how many players attack each goal

This part is designed to strip back session into a more structure 'Defending when Outnumbered' game, to allow players to put into practice ideas suggested during the more chaotic game
