Screening and Blocking Defenders - Advanced Attacking
This week's session uses fun games and passing-pattern exercises to teach your players how to use the screen to block opposition defenders and create space for the shot.
To help your players become screen-setting-superstars we work on both the front and the back screen. If your players have never used screens before then don't worry, you can start at half pace and slowly increase the tempo as your players become more confident.
What's in the Session?
The first part of this session introduces your players to blocking in a fun warm-up drill without a ball. After this players get into small groups, using match-like passing-patterns where players can learn how to implement the screen in a game situation.
By the end of this session your players will be far more aware of screens and how to use them in a game situation.
