Team task:
Structure

Purpose:
Improve assumption to "move" opponent

Organisation: 

  • Positioning game 3/4x1 in square box of 6x6. 
  • pawn in the middle, team ball-possession must shoot this pawn for points, defender must prevent this. 
  • Each player in team ball-possession is on one side of the square. 
  • A player may only defend by intercepting a pass on a pawn. 
  • Match/fun element can be reinforced by agreeing that the person with the most points has won after 5 minutes, the rest must for example do 10 push-ups or sprints. 
  • Can be made more difficult by the fact that attacking party has to score in 10 passes.


Coaching:
Direction in assumption to "move" opponent, freeing up space to play towards pawn.

1.5 metres: 

  • Because the defender is only allowed to intercept passes, there are no duels. 
  • Furthermore, perimeter ensures that players in team ball-possession do not come closer than 1.5 metres. 
  • the shape also invites players to keep the pitch as large as possible.
