3 Zones Defending (30 mins)

Area will be 30 yards long 20 15 yards across.

5 players in each area. Middle section is where defending group will start. Players will receive pass in from coach and try to complete 4 passes before sending ball to far grid. When ball is played in defenders will send in 3 players to defend as a group. If defending group wins ball that group will then become defending team.If pass is completed to other side, two players from middle and tracking defender must enter back into to pressure.

Coaching Points

Introducing small group defending. Focusing on 2nd and 3rd defender. Support position, balance with other defenders, communication push left or right. As a group patience to stop forward progress, don't jump in, defending in high pressure, or in blocks to stop passes. Players in middle area positioned to try to intercept. Help with recognizing pressure, cover, if ball gets passed next player steps to close down and other players cover in supporting roles.
