Teach players to face up to their opponents and deny space - forcing the error and winning back the ball - with this defending skills session.
To keep up the pressure we work on peripheral vision, blocking/shielding and communication in defence.
What's in the Session?
We start with a fun game of Cops and Robbers (bound to put a smile on all your players' faces, whatever their age) and then look at ways to develop your players' ability to limit space - challenging your defenders to work hard to pressure their opposite number and rewarding them when they successfully make an interception.
1st Stage of Defence - Shadow Defence
2nd Stage of Defence - Pressure and Intercept
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
Get your players driving onto the ball with this attacking session, helping them to lose their marker and create space
Having the shooters to put the points on the board is vital. Get your players in the attacking circle full of confidence with this shooting session.
"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
Give it a try - it's better in the app
