Guided Passive Defending (10 mins)

Defenders stay in their cone lanes

The 1st defender (nearest to the ball) pressures the offensive player (passive, do not tackle)

The 2nd defender drops back and should be at a 45* angle behind the 1st defender, this is to prevent a breakaway if the 1st defender is beat

The 3rd defender creeps up to be at a 20* angle behind the 1st defender and in front of the 2nd defender, this is to defend against a through pass behind the defensive line.

The 4th defender pushed up slightly to be able to quickly pressure if the ball is switched and or intercept a pass.

The correct shape when the ball wide should resemble a nike Check.

Passive Defense (no tackling)

Offensive players start out with just passing and moving in their space without dribbling to a defender.

Offensive goal is to pass the ball back and fourth 5 times and then find an opening to shoot on either goal. (must pass back and fouth 5 times, they are allowed to dribble in their space)

Defensive goal is to work on their defensive shape with passive defense (no tackling)

Defenders should be able to deny an open look at either goal with quick whole group movements.

Defender are to intercept any pass or shot they can get to without going into the attacking zone

**Progression: allow active defense and offensive players are allowed to move into the defensive space**

**Progression: add a 3rd attacker**
