Work on the defensive concept of channelling with your team in this session, helping to make the opposition?s play more predictable, so your defence can easily snuff out their attack. By restricting play to one area, your players will be able to anticipate where the ball is going to go, therefore making it easier to clear the ball and halt the attack!
What?s in the Session?
Use this session to develop the defenders understanding of where to send the attackers, starting with a four-goal channelling drill to improve their technical ability. Defenders should be delaying attackers until sufficient defensive support is available by channelling them wide, away from the danger areas. Teach your players not to dive in, with the use of jockeying, making sure they have a good body position to the ball in a more match specific practice to finish the session.
With the use of these key drills, get your players thinking defensively and delaying the opposition, ready to stop the attack in its tracks!
Reduce the turnovers and get your team working up the field by keeping possession and building attacks by selecting the right pass.
The ?modern way? is to play out from the back. To be able to do it successfully though, you need your defenders to be comfortable on the ball when looking to pass, dribble and scan the pitch.
Develop your defenders understanding of how to channel the attackers away from danger areas to slow down attacks and isolate the opposition players.
Teach all your players how to stand up and resist the temptation to dive in. Instead jockey players and wait for the right moment to make the interception!
Drum in the defensive roles and responsibilities of your players and make sure they understand what you want from them in order to win the ball back and turn defence into attack.
