Denying Space - Driving Defence

In this session we look at improving 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.

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 where you can get your players making darting defensive runs before receiving a high pass.

Understandably not all your players are going to be expert ball snatchers, however after using this session you should expect to see all your players minimising the threat from the opposition by shepherding the opposition into wide positions on the field and by picking off some of the high balls fed through the court.
