1v1s with high feed (15 mins)

Talking Points

• Receiving player (defender) must bring the ball under control as quickly as possible

• The attacking player should close down the space as quickly as possible to put pressure on the defender as they try to bring the ball under control

Progression

• 2v1 (two receivers) and 2v2

• communication becomes key as to who goes to the ball etc
