(YDP) Defending when out numbered 1

Practice organisation

• Area 60x40yds set-out in equal thirds with goals at each end,

as illustrated.

• 14 players (incl. 2GKs), with Defenders out numbered 2v3 in each

end third.

• Practice starts with: Neutral players in mid third,

serve ball into Attackers & support play from behind, without

entering end third.

• Objective of practice: D’s play out-numbered to prevent A’s from

scoring, gain possession & pass in to N’s, to score one point.

• Rotate roles of players.

Detail

• Distance between 2D’s when being attacked by

three opponents.

• Communication, changing roles & working with GK as sweeper.

• Deflecting attacks away from central goal-scoring areas.

• Balanced, controlled 1v1 defending skills.

• D’s identifying opportunity to pass or run with ball

on gaining possession.

• Simple progressions for this practice are:

- N serves & moves into end zone to become an A

i.e. 2D’s v 4A’s.

- N serves & moves forward & other recovers to defend i.e. 3D’s v 4A’s.

Key coaching points

• Blocking shots.

• Pressing man on ball & employing delaying tactics

to avert attack.

• Marking & covering.

• Winning ball & quickly playing forward to N.
