Flying interceptions drill

Hi everyone, i was wondering if anyone has any good flying interception drills that can be progressed and overloaded? Need some drills for my GCSE PE!

Hi Lottie-Emily, 

I have attached a good interception drill below, the drill is simple but when completed at a high intensity it can be extremely effective. The way to progress this drill is to:
1) Ensure you are passing to the player driving straight, not the player intercepting the ball 
2) Mix up the passes given (anywhere) - e.g. a small dropped ball, so the player intercepting has to react to the ball quickly

Alternatively, there are a number of good drills below:
- Interception Group Drill - Similar to the drill above, the same progressions apply
- Ball and Hole - a fun drill which will get your players working in partnership to promote successful interceptions. To progress the drill add more players to the circle to make it larger. Also, you can add more defence into the circle, they will then have to be more spatially aware
- Intercept the Compass - A more complex drill that will get your defenders really thinking. You can lower the ability by having only one defender work, as they will only have to consider themselves or progress the drill by adding another defender to ensure they are considering one another. 

Hope this helps.

Description:
  • Red 2 has the ball and red 1 starts in the opposite corner
  • Blue 1 runs forward and Red 2 passes a diagonal pass to Blue 1
  • Red 1 moves on a diagonal to intercept the pass
  • Following the interception red 1 feeds a straight pass onto Blue 2
  • Red 2 then runs straight to receive a diagonal pass from Blue 2 and Blue 1 moves across to intercept this pass.
