Simple defensive block session

davidscwnew

This game works on reactive speed and forces the players to work at match speed in order to be successful.

Set up an area 25 yards square with three poles, three balls and one goal.

The steps

  1. Split your players into two lines with one line acting as defenders and one line as the attackers.
  2. The players pass the ball back and forth. On your whistle, they quickly run around their poles.
  3. The attacker must then shoot first time and the defender must try to clear the ball or block the shot.

What to call out

  • “React”
  • “Get in line with the ball”
  • “Stop the shot”
