1v1 Academy Defending

Instructions: defender knocks it in and steps to defend and tries to win the ball. when they win it, the game has ended. attacker receives it and tries to (in this order) 1. get OUT of their triangle 2. get IN to opponents triangle 3. get ACROSS opponents endline.

scoring for defenders:

3 points, win the ball inside their triangle.

2 points, if attacker dribbles out of their triangle, that's ok. protect your own triangle by shuffling your feet, keep them from entering your triangle for 2.

1 point. if attacker dribbles past you, and get into your triangle, there's still a chance to get a point. make a recovery run (shape of a J) and keep them from dribbling across the endline for a point.

0 points if they dribble across your endline.

Guided Discovery Through Defending Process:

a. "when do you stop sprinting?" sprint to close until they take their:1st touch

b. "How close do you need to be to put pressure on them?" get close enough so you are:

arms distance away

c. "why shouldn't you just run right at them?" approach from an angle so that the game is: predictable

d. "why do we keep them away from the middle?" in the game we want to force players wide and away from our: goal

3v3 Defend and Counter attack

Instructions:

central defender can defend on either side. wide defenders are defending only on their side. if the ball is far on the right side, our right defender should be pressuring, they should have cover from the central defender, and the left defender should arrive all the way centrally, as far as the center line will allow them, introducing the idea of supporting the play while we are 3rd closest to the ball (balance)

3v3 defend and counterattack.

closest defender to the ball at any time needs to PRESSURE. 2nd closest needs to support/cover them. covering player is there so they aren't beatedn on the DRIBBLE, so they can't be out wide marking an opponent on the sideline.
