Build upon your players’ basic defending skills and teach them to switch from zone and man-to-marking defending, forming a tight defence. It’s important that your players are able to understand the importance of man marking so work on both their strengths and weaknesses to get their skills spot on during your next game!
Get your defenders to dictate play with a number of exercises, by forcing the opposition to keep passing the ball, winding them down until a mistake is made. Ensure that your players know the basics of defending and how to take advantage of any sloppy mistakes, making sure that they are able to mark the defender tightly, following the attacker’s every move.
Each exercise has progressions for you to work and challenge your players harder, so they are fully prepared for a competitive situation. Tighten up your defence with this session today!
