Defending in 1 v 1 Situations (10 mins)

Defending in 1 v 1 Situations

Set up

Players split in to 2 sides.

Player starts with Ball - passes straight to oppostion who receives the ball and trys to score a goal in the goal. The defending player must try and get the ball and score in either of the 2 away goals.

When the attempt finishes, goals scored or ball out, players go to the back of the other queue.

The session is defending based so emphasise on the defenders body shape and positioning on the pitch

5 Defendsive principals

Delay - is the defense’s ability to slow down an offense to disrupt the pace and/or numerical advantage of an attack.

Depth - Depth is a defense’s placement on the field -- too deep and there is too much space for an offense to hold the ball in front of them, too shallow and there is too much space for an offense to get behind.

Balance - refers to a defense’s strength all over the field, not just those directly defending the ball.

Concentration - is a defense’s focus, which is critical to avoid simple mistakes like miskicks that can give opponents undeserved opportunities.

Composure/discipline/patience - is an intangible that an entire team must possess to maintain defensive shape and the other four principles even while under constant pressure.
