Warm-up: 1v1 / Defensive Positioning

- 16 Players (6-7 balls)

- 8 with balls and 8 without

1. Players pass and move (if ball hits ball or bad pass) 1 quick push-up

2. Players pass and move - Player now recieve off the turn using left/right foot)

3. Players check towards the ball and lay off first time then spin out and get thru ball into space.


Players now pass to any player and player recieving takes 3-4 touches straight at that player before doing a move and dribbling into space. Player who played pass intitially adjusts thier defensive positioning to the ball by"Jockeying" and shifting right to left.


Same as above but now it's full pressure - Attacker now attempts to run at defender and beat her on the dribble
