1v2 Pressure/Cover

Set Up: Grid is 10 yards wide by 15-20 yards long. Three lines of players with the Attacking line at the top of the grid, one Defending line (the Pressure) starting by the goal, and one Defending line 3-5 yards up the sideline depending upon ability.

Activity: Depending on ability of players, coach can either play ball out, or "Pressure" defender can play ball out. As ball is played out, "Pressure" defender sprints out to pressure defender with proper technique. "Cover" defender must sprint and touch goal before entering field. When "Cover" defender enters field, they must provide proper supporting angle to "Pressure" defender as shown in (2). Add another goal to increase decision making and pressure on defense.

Coaching Points: Proper defending technique from first defender, proper angle of support from second defender, if "Pressure" defender gets beat then "Cover" defender must step up and become "Pressure" while first defender reCOVERS behind. Have "Pressure" defender push attacker to side where "Cover" is coming from. Add in communication techniques with advanced groups such as, "push left, push right, contain" etc.
