2nd Man Defending Closing Down (20 mins)

On Go the first man in each line will close down on the attacker (dummy)

The second man in the line will pick a side and support the 1st man.

Second man must tell First man "right" or "left" for which side he is on and which side to force the attacker to.

** Coaching points: 1) defenders must be "side on" no hips square to the dummy. 2) 2nd man needs to be vocal calling out "right", "left", "support" or "help" 3) 1st man must close into about 5 yards and turn side on, shuffle step to close in with the correct footwork **

First man needs to be on the opposite side of the dummy to push the attacker into the second

once completed they will return to the cone and switch positions and repeat the drill.

8 passes then attack (20 mins)

Goal: improve movement off ballm require all 6 offensive players to touch the ball and a min of 8 passes before they can move into the attacking 3rd and try and score.

only 3 of the 6 may penetratem however all 6 are still in active play and the other 3 can support the attack, also the 3 in and the 3 out of the attacking 1/3 can rotate during play for a more complex attack.

focus on good runs off ball, opening up and creating space.

STOP play when a player just chases the ball or doesnt create space.
