Denying Space - Channel, Shadow and Intercept!
Improve defence throughout your entire team, working on channelling, shadowing and intercepting high balls.
Defending shouldn't be the sole responsibility of players inside the defensive third - the instant your team loses possession of the ball it should be all hands on deck as your team works as a unit to regain possession.
What's in the Session?
To improve your players' spatial awareness, in turn increasing the number of passing errors from the opposition, we start with an explosive running and catching drill. After your players have practised intercepting the high balls we then play two fun conditioned games - putting what they've learnt in this session into practice!
