Defending as group
Aim - To improve communication and organisation when defending. To improve players awareness and positioning when defending in a group.
- 1. Good communication, lots of talking from your defenders.
- 2. Develop a system where one defender presses the ball and the other two take up appropriate covering positions.
- 3. Ensure the pressing is done sharply and with enthusiasm.
- 4. When pressing the ball make sure the defender is low and light on his/her feet so he/she can change direction quickly and effectively.
