I am looking for team defensive drills, not individual defending or defending in pairs or threes

I am looking for team defensive drills, not individual defending or defending in pairs or threes, but ideally as a whole team to ensure we keep the right shape. Do you have any suggestions other than a straight forward game?

Dear Martyn I have attached a simple press animation for you to have a look at. It involves the whole team ( you can see the movement the best by moving the slider left and right with the mouse, instead of the play button. I can send you more ideas and build up games to make to get to this practice. Let me know what you think. Kind regards Bram

simple press


Description:

This animation is made to show my team The way we set up our press and where each player moves according to where the ball is.


Coaching Points:

Important that the  forwards stay in a line and move at the same pace not leaving gaps.

If the ball comes close to the zone we need to come out of the zoen to put pressure on the ball carrier and once the ball is passed back away from the zone the player should get back in line and not chase the ball around.

Important also is that if the player steps out of the zone to put pressure on the ball the player behind the zone step up in front of their players in anticipation of a pass being given in a forward direction.
