Attacking & Defending 3

  • Organisation

    Materials: Each player a ball, cones and two goals
  • Process

    The coach chooses one defender who is positioned 20-25m in front of the goal. The other players are with their balls at around 30-35m in front of the goal. The players move towards the defender and try to dribble past him with a trick with the aim to score a goal. Change the defender after one set. Variations: - The defender moves at the beginning only on one line - The defender has only a limited area to defend - The defender can move freely
  • Tip
