Transition Drill (30 mins)

Set Up: Inner square 10x10 yards. Outer square 40x40 yards. Balls start from the coach on the outside of the grid.

Instructions: Red keeps the ball till it goes outside the small grid. Blue keeps possession till they lose it.

Progression 1: Red do not stop defending till it goes out of play or they gain possession.

Progression 2: As soon as blue gains possession, they gain a point if they can hit the target inside the small grid.

Coaching Points:

- It's easier to defend for 6 seconds than it is for 2 minutes.

- Defend as a unit, not solo

- Pressure/cover/balance

- Angle of approach

Defending From the Front (30 mins)

Set Up: Back 4, holding midfield and 1 roaming midfield will play with the goalkeeper. The defending team will have front 3 and midfield 3.

Instructions: Ball starts with goalkeeper, ball is passed out to one of the CB. The goal of the back 4 is to pass it through one of the 3 gates, or to get the midfield turned.

Coaching Points

- As soon as the ball is player, the striker is making a curved run, cutting off the opposite CB and goalkeeper and some back pressure to CB with ball

- Wingers job is to compact in the middle to close down any passing lanes, till the ball goes to the fullback, the ball CAN'T be played down the line.

- Attacking midfield is to mark the holding midfield whereas they go, don't let them have free touches (try to remove them from the game)

- The 2 deeper midfield are to hold their line and only step to delay the ball if the press is broken
