Pressure, Cover Balance


- 3 attackers and 3 defenders

- attackers start with the ball beside the goal, their aim is to get the ball in the end zone

- the defenders will be working on pressing high, covering and player giving the team balance

- defenders aim;

1. if they win the ball in the zone closest to goal (high pressure) - 3 points

2. if they win it with the covering player, middle zone (covering) - 2 points

3. if they recieve it in the last zone by the player giving balance (low pressure) 1 point


Once the defenders win the ball they are then free to score

two teams swap over

Key Points

- Player pressing to make command before closing down the ball so team mates can support and cover accordnigly

- players should be shaped like a triangle to ensure they are covering each other

- if attacker gets past defender, a recovery run shouold be made to now pick up a new position and new role within the group.
