Channel Practice (15 mins)

Blue player (Def) starts with the ball, they play a firm pass to the Red player (att) and it becomes a 1v1 situation. The Red player scores a point by passing the ball into a mini goal at the other side of the pitch. The Blue player wins a point by winning the ball off the Red player and scoring in the opposite goal or by stopping the Red player from scoring.

Coaching Points

1) ARC RUN - Defender must "arc" his run to the attacking player to show the attacker to his weaker side, this giving the attacker less options/space to play

2) CLOSE DOWN AT PACE - The Defender must run at pace to close the Attack down quickly giving the Attacker less time to play - Also, if the defender is beaten higher up they may still have a better chance to recover

3) SIDE ON BODY SHAPE - The Defender must keep a side-on body shape to allow the to adapt easier to any attacker movements.

4) JOCKEY DEFENCE - The Defender must avoid "Dipping a toe in". This commits the defender and allows the Attacker to move the opposite way.
