Description

Player 4 marks player 3 while aiming to intercept the pass between the two blue players (feeders).

If Player 4 makes their move too soon the feeders should try to play the ball over the defender's head to player 3.

Coaching points

This drill is all about timing your move - go too early or too late and you're going to make it easy for the attackers to pass the ball over your head!

Progression

To make the drill easier players make the feeder player stand further apart (longer pass) and the defender stand closer to the ball.

To make the drill harder position the defender further away from the two feeders.
