Forcing Attackers to the Outside & Make Errors

Players will be focusing on forcing the error and making that all important interception to turn over the ball to increase their teams success on goal.

Preview Plan


Every player is involved in this defensive exercise.

  1. The first player in the center passes to an outside player.
  2. After passing the ball the passing player drives forward and defends the player who has just received the pass.
  3. Once the defender is in place the player to the right of the player who has received the ball should sprint into the center and look to receive a pass (bounce, chest or high) from the outside player.

Once the player in the center has the ball the drill can begin again.

Coaching points

Hands shadow ball. Jump up and forward.

Defender has to time their jump to tip the pass as the attacker sends it.

Progression: Add a second ball and have the exercise working on two sides of the circle.
