Intercepting Passes II

Sliding to Intercept Passes I

Practice organisation

-Area 25x10yds with 5 yards channel marked across width of practice area, as illustrated.

-5 players organised into 2’s in each end zone & 1 player in channel.

-Supply of balls with coach.

-Practice starts with: ball fed in by coach to one pair of A’s who receive & pass, looking for an opportunity to transfer ball across the opposite zone, below head-height.

-Defender in central channel looks to block/screen ball being passes to end zone.

-Players rotate in 1 minute intervals to retain intensity.

-If D manages to intercept: ball is played to coach, who then immediately feeds another ball into practice.

-Attackers must remain in the back half of their zone when passing the ball.

Details

-Simple progression for this practice are:

-- Additional players in central channel.

-- When using 2 defenders in central channel widen playing area to 20 yds.

-- If interception is completed: player(s) quickly attack end line with ball.

- - Add T player at either end to receive intercepted passes from central players that need to be screened by players in end zone who become the defenders.

Key coaching points

-Read & Anticipate likely passes

-Low carriage & sliding movement across area, using quick footwork.

-Looking for interceptions &/or deflections of passes.
