When the interplay is going satisfactorily, some defenders join the field and try to block the ball away from the attackers.

drawing Together to the other side
  • Group split into the left corners next to the 2 goals.
  • All players have a ball.
  • The front player in the line gets to roll her ball away and chooses position on the 9 meter and starts to function as the point of play.
  • The front player of the line plays the point of play, paces towards the center line, gets the ball back just before the center line.
  • Catches the ball with 2 hands, makes 3 passes and then starts to tip.

  • Right build-up player rounds on goal within 6 seconds.
drawing Starting up and replaying
  • Across half a playing field there are a total of 12 caps in two different colors.
  • Each player starts at a cap of their choice; if a player has the ball, they play it to someone with a different color of cap.
Each correct play scores a point.
How many points can be made within a minute?

  • Ball may not return to sender
  • Extra ball in play for pace
  • Ball carrier must be/maintain movement
  • Group divide-> mutual competition
drawing Interplay in motion
4 defenders versus 3 attackers.
  • The exercise is focused on the defenders.
  • The point is to get out before the attacker receives the ball.

  • The attackers start in and play the ball around at pace.
  • Once the attacker actually has the ball, the defender stops as quickly as possible.
  • Once the attacker has come to a stop, the defender releases it immediately.
  • The defender does hold hands high to intercept the ball immediately.
drawing Getting out and making contact
  • In pairs facing each other.
  • Defend by walking toward each other and:
    • bringing hands to shoulder height
    • tapping each other in the air with the hands - jumping
    • touching each other in the air with the chest
    • stopping each other with the hand in the side

drawing defense aspect
  • 1 player per corner without ball as a focal point
  • 1 circle player without ball as a focal point
  • Distribute the rest of the players with ball over the construction positions

  • Ball owner plays in motion to point of play, runs on, gets the ball back and shoots from outside the 9 meters at goal
  • Initially shoot from a run or long shot, then with a jump shot
  • For rounding, pylons can be placed in the corners of the goal
  • For aiming high, the goal can be imaginary divided into 4 areas, with aiming in the top 2 areas

  • Give lots of shots and then 1 on 1 tips for improvement
  • The goal is to try a lot
drawing Shooting from a distance
  • Teaching and improving starting player
  • Expand with defenders
  • Final exercise based on horizontal binding
drawing methodical practice set starting attacker
