In this session we focus on your players' ability to run out to put pressure on the opposition's pivot, defend the ball and then run back to cover the space.
Defending the pivot is a skill which all teams should practice as soon as you notice that your opponents are starting to play use pivot players. To mark the pivot players will need to position themselves behind the opposition player and be ready to defend with an open hand as soon as the ball is played. This will allow your player to cut out the pass and regain possession for your team.
