Defensive with compactness and communication

Aim - To improve communication and give the players an idea of how to keep compact when defending. This drill will also place the concepts of covering and supporting into the players minds.

Key Points

  1. 1. Get out to the ball quickly and sharply, then shorten your steps to jockey effectively.
  2. 2. Nearest man shuts the ball down.
  3. 3. If the defender shuts the ball down effectively and the attacker passes square to a team mate then that defender must drop and cover while his team mate shuts the ball down.
  4. 4. Defenders not to be caught square.
