Technical Warm up (20 mins)

Get in pairs or 3-4 per line

Defending side on (forcing the attacker one direction)

-R Foot forward- Shoulders angled to force the defender left

-L Foot Forward- Shoulders angled to force the defender right

-quick feet

-Push off your front foot to move backwards (if you lean to far back you may fall down)

-The front foot keeps the attacker from cutting inside and the back foot steps to win if the attacker goes outside

Player with the ball will pass to the defenders back foot. The defender stops the ball and continues moving forward staying side on (never switch which foot is forward- it creates space for the attacker). Repeat.

1v1

Defending 1v1 with the intent to push the attacker wide and deny the inside

1 will play the ball in to 2 (Coaches can play the ball if needed)

1 then must pressure the ball side on (can progress to a time limit of 7 seconds if the defender delays for the full time point). If 1 wins the ball they attempt to dribble across the blue line.

2 tries to score.

Flip the drill to the opposite side of the field to work on the opposite foot forward (1 pushes the attacker left... then the defender will push the attacker right)

Keep the kids rotating fast- once the player confirms their defensive stance- play the next ball
