Set Up:

  • Make a 30 x 15 yard field and split it in half.

  • Play 5v4 in one half, while the remaining player is stationed alone in the other grid. When the four defenders win the ball, they try to play the ball to their teammate in the other grid. When successful, they move into that grid to support him. The opposing team sends four players over into that half as well, creating a new 5v4 game.

Coaching Points:

  • Same coaching points as above when putting on the initial pressure

  • Try and angle the pressuring run to force the attacker in one direction. This will help the other defenders to anticipate where the next pass is likely to go.

  • When the attacking team loses possession, they must try and win ball back immediately before the defending team can play it to the other grid.¬†Encourage players to double team when possible.
