Defending - body position

  • Organisation

    -Split team into 2 lines facing each other 10 yards apart.

    -One line has balls.

  • Process

    Defenders must close the gap quickly, set up sideways position, and force to right, left, right left as player slowly dribbles forward.

    Start drill with no dispossession then make it 'live' once players understand the concept of correct positioning

  • Tip

    Emphasize on not standing square, staying on your toes, keeping close, and forcing the player to one side or the other.

  • Field size

    10x 30yd
