Contact and Handling skills

Rating: 3
from 21 members ratings

To get your players used to contact and introduce match like handling situations this session deliberately applies pressure to the pass - encouraging players to release the ball early!

Throughout the session your players will be given the opportunity to attack different channels in an overload situation and will have to decide for themselves where and when to pass in order to try and avoid the breakdown of play - do they play the early pass or take the contact and offload in the tackle?

As your players grow in confidence you can gradually increase the pressure on the pass, working on your players' ability to offload at the right time!
