In this session we work towards a tighter defence by teaching your players how to deal with speedy forwards, such as Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez - teaching them to hold the man up and not recklessly dive in!
Many coaches often focus a lot of time and attention on playing the offside trap. Although this can be successful eventually the opponent is going to time their run right, leaving you with a line of defenders sprinting desperately back towards their own goal.
To reduce your team's reliance on the offside trap instead we look at staying with your man, holding them up and not committing too early. Starting with a couple of Wake Up drills to get your players nicely warmed up - you can then work your way through a series of challenging defensive exercises to improve your team's defensive game!
Keep your players sharp and recap their passing, turning and ball control with this multi-skills session - finishing with two fun conditioned games
To coach and develop players understanding of how to attack and create goal scoring opportunities quickly. Provide technical detail around combinations and finishing to increase success rate.
Introduce goalkeepers to recovery lines and efficiency of movement across the goals. Check the GK is moving into line with the ball when making the save.
Make the most of the space on the field by getting your players into the mind-set of switching the play, rather than trying to hammer down the same congested channel each time.
