Do your players know how to make the right decisions when defending and decide on the right stage of defence for the situation?
To help them make the right decisions, communicate and win the ball back in this session we take our inspiration from hip hop band De La Soul and teach your players that Three is the magic number with the Three Stages of Defence!
Structured drills and exercises will guide enable you to guide your players through the three stages of defence - creating defensive situations for your players where they'll have to make the right decision! Do they stay and mark the player? Do they make themselves look big like a cat in front of the player on the ball or do they drive in and try to make the interception?
Develop your player's basic defensive skills in order to turnover the ball or force attacking errors.
Develop your player's defensive movement, in order to intercept the ball or force errors to secure the win.
Get your defenders reading the situation, reacting to the ball and performing clean interceptions to regain possession
