Pressing Warmup (15 mins)

10x10

Play always starts with server.

1st: "Play right, go left" & "Press player opposite of you" - coach angle of approach

2nd: "Play left, go right" & "Press player opposite of you" - coach angle of approach

3rd: Player receiving picks direction - coach cover!

4th: if covering defender picks off pass - two attackers involved get pushups - restart with server!

*** "Make play predictable" - progression helps show the importance of pressuring runs and cover positioning themselves off of the run.

*** Mix in Extensive Dynamic Movements (larger space for longer)

- Play for 2 minutes and switch roles

- "Make play predictable" - force outside

- "Line of Confrontation" - let them come to you

- Attack in a 2-1-2

- Defend in a 2-2-1

*** Make sure to lead team through a proper cool down to end training.
