  • COACHING POINTS

  • Marking means tracking individual players and covering space through which passes can be made. It is an important aspect of the game with defenders attempting to stop an attacker gaining possession of the ball.
  • Marking will generally be from the side or slightly in front for most of the pitch, with the defender trying to intercept the ball.
  • Marking an attacker in the circle will generally be from slightly behind the player or to the side if more experienced, with the defender trying to intercept the ball
  • Defender will keep close to the attacker and between the attacker and the goal
