Coaching Points:

1: Pressing: when we have #'s around the ball. 1st defender presses and forces play to defensive numbers. Supporting players close passing lanes. Entire group needs to be focus on roles and ability to kill the options and minimize space & time 1st attacker has.

2: Organize: when numbers are scattered around the field. Regain defensive shape and channel play into tight areas while looking for opportunity to close down the player on the ball.

3. Speed of transition: IMPULSE TO WIN THE BALL BACK.
