Interception square

I am currently coaching a senior college team and I have found Sportplan...
Kiri, Coach

DESCRIPTION

Set up in a square ~5x5m.  2 lines of feeders, with a receiver positioned  in front of one line and a defender in front of the other.

In the diagram, the blue feeder passes diagonally to the receiver, who remains stationary, while the defender attempts the intercept.  If they are successful, they gather the ball with strict footwork rules applied, and deliver it to the red feeder.  If the receiver gets the ball, they too pass it to the red feeder.  The defender then joins the back of the red feeding line.

Once the blue feeder has made their pass, they move to the spot vacated by the defender and they then become the receiver, while the previous receiver becomes the defender.  So the red feeder now passes to the blue receiver, while the red defender attempts to intercept, then joins the blue feed line.  The flow continues until every player has run through several times.

COACHING POINTS

Start with a small box and chest passes only.

To increase difficulty, change to overhead passes or widen the square.

If an interception is tipped, ask both receiver and defender to chase the ball, still maintaining strict footwork. Wait for the receiver to rejoin the square before making the next pass, to give them a chance of interception.
