Hi all, thank you for taking the time to read my question. I was hoping for some clarity around 'presses'Pressing oppositions 16- Full press3/4 pressHalf courtWhat are the pro's and cons offensively of each and in what situation would you suggest using each?
As a coach I prefer to use the half court press. The advantages of using this press are that it forces the opposition into tigheter spaces and denies them the opportunities for passing straight down the middle of the pitch. The tight space puts a lot of pressure on the opposition, forcing them to pass the ball wide and giving your team more chances to add pressure and turn the ball over.
If your team manage to turnover the ball, there is space already created for the count attack.
The diagram I`ve attached gives you some more details and how to implement the press for your team.
I hope that is helpful. Let me know how you get on, or if you have any more thoughts once you`ve had a go at trying it!
