A well drilled side where everyone knows what they're doing is incredibly hard to break through. That's why in this defensive system session we get your players to practice marking players who are switching or overlapping by passing their man on - ensuring your side maintains their defensive shape and don't get pulled out of position.
Communication is the running theme throughout this session - just as they should be doing during a real game, your players should be talking throughout the entirety of this session. If your back line is full of talkers no player should ever be in doubt as to what's going on.
What's in the Session?
To get your team defending as a well drilled unit we start this session with a couple of games of touch and an alignment running drill - encouraging communication throughout your squad before progressing into some tackling exercises - finishing with a man-on-man conditioned defending game.
