Great site. An absolute must for coaches who are willing to change...

  • Defender passes the ball.
  • Attackers go 1 on 1 and try to penetrate the circle.
  • Defenders priority is to stop the player getting through gate 1, then gate 2, then gate 3.
  • The defender engages as far away from the the circle edge as possible.
  • Work the left and right sides.
  • COACHING POINTS
