1v1 Defending (15 mins)

Equipment: Supply of Balls, 10 cones

Set up: set up as per diagram with 5 rectangle areas 10x5.

P1: A plays a pass to player B. B dribbles out towards end cones at A. A rushes to close down B and simply back peddles in a defensive posture (does not try to win the ball at this stage). B remains on side A and the next player from line B plays a pass into initial player A who now dribbles towards B and the drill continues cycling.

P2: Side A are defenders, side B attackers. Player B attempts to beat defender within the space. Defender now tries to win the ball and either dribble to the attackers end or win the ball and pass the ball to the next player waiting in line. (2 points awarded if defender can win it and dribble to opponent end line, 1 point if defender wins it and passes to next player, 1 point for attacker if they can beat the defender to the opposite line. Players, constantly switch ends to rotate between being attacker and defender.

Coaching points:

Defender body position is side on

Weight on toes

Eye on ball

Knees bent and ready to pivot

For P2--shut down space quickly but don't over commit, get close enough to affect play of opponent
