SetUp - 20x30 box with 2 sets of Mini goals at either end. Red team start at one side and the Blues and the opposite side.

Drill - The drill starts with one Red player dribbling forward un-opposed and scoring a goal. As soon as the Red player scores the Red player will become a Defender and the Blue attacker will make it a 1v1. The cycle continues once the Blue player either scores or the Red player successfully defends the goal.

Coaching Points - While defending a 1 v 1 timing is crucial. You do not want to give up any space close to the goals. Stop the attacker from gaining any momentum and try to force the attacker into a wide area or onto their weaker foot. Try an steal the ball once the attacker is close enough to do so.

Set-Up - 30x40 yard box This box is divided into 4 quarters. Each mini box has a 1v1. There is a Floating Player who will be active with the Attacking team. There will also be two End players at either side of the goal.

Drill - The attacking player with the ball can dribble into any bow to create an overload.

*No player can move into another box without the ball. You can only dribble into another box.

Coaching Points - Defending Players must make it as difficult as possible for the /attackers to advance into opposing boxes and stop any potential overloads. The defensive players closer to the oppositions goals will be asked to delay any forward movement and cut off any easy pass forward.

The defensive players closer to their own goal will be asked to engage with the attacker and try and steal the ball before they receive it.
