1v1 to the line.

Organization:

Players are placed inside a rectangle roughly 40 x 30. The Yellow players start with a ball each.

Procedure:

The Yellow players play a pass the black players. The black players become the attackers and have to attempt to dribble past the defender and stop the ball anywhere on the yellow player’s line. If the yellow player wins possession, they then become the attacker and have to stop the ball on the black player’s line. Once a goal is scored, who ever scored starts the game off with the pass.

After roughly 2 minutes stop the games, the winning player will move up the ladder and the loosing player moves down. Now the players have new competition. Play the games several times.

The coach should coach the following moves to help beat the defender:
