Basics of closing down the ball.

Technical Instruction (20 mins)

Setup: Cone grid is 20 Length by 10 width. A ball placed in center 10 yards from cones.

Setup is for 12 players. Players will line up evenly on all cones facing the ball.

Drill time: 20 min

Diagram: Players A and B show the beginning of the drill. Players C and D show the progression.

Instruction:

- On the coaches command, the 1st player in each line will sprint out to defend the ball. (They are not to touch the ball), the player should freeze and wait for the coaches command to start the backpedal. Give no further instruction until the players are understanding the drill

- Once players understand the drill start going over the 4 defending rules 1 at a time correcting them as they freeze in the stance each time.

- 4 Defending rules

1) Close down - The player should get to the ball as fast as possible.

2) Break down - The player should start to take much smaller steps (shuffle) as they get near the ball. Now is the time to leave space

3) Get down - The player should bend the knees with chest over toes to get in a good athletic stance that will allow quick movements. Keep the feet moving.

4) Show down - The player should show the ball/opponent to one side to make them predictable. Come on the ball at an angle.

Progression:

-Now have the players apply shadow pressure (Just showing pressure but not trying to win)

Player C will pass to Player D then run out and do the 4 Defending steps back pedling with the attacker. Once they reach the cone they will exchange the ball and player D will now defend player C. Give the ball to the next group and repeat.
