Soccer drills for defense

Ad

This is a technical football exercise in a pass and kick form.

Mark out a square of 15 by 15 meter.

Place three or four players at all yellow cones. If you have sixteen players or more, it is best to mark out two sections. The exercise starts with four players at the same time. All four players dribble to the blue pawn in the middle of the square. When they reach the blue pawn, they cut the ball off to the left or right.

The first player of pawn A passes to the second player of pawn B. He receives the ball and now it's his turn to dribble to the blue pawn and pass to the left or right.

Player A runs after the ball and thus joins the line at the pawn again, keeping the players in a circle. Make sure all players run in the same direction (left or right). After a while, you can switch between left and right.

Coach moments

The ball touches must be good, make sure the players move on their front feet and have an active position to catch the ball

Make sure that the cutting movement is exaggerated and that the ball is in a good position to be passed into.

The ball should be played in hard again and again, in order to keep up the pace and speed of the ball

The dribbling must also be done at a high speed, with the ball close to the foot.

Variants of this type of exercise: (can be performed with the left or right foot)

Cutting with the inside and outside of the foot

Pull back with the left and then turn open with the right

Step over with the left and then take the ball over with the right

Retrieve with the left and tap the ball with the right behind the supporting leg

Tips

Try out different sizes of box When you have a larger section, you are training for fitness and a tight ball When you have a smaller section, you are mainly training for speed of action

Work through this type of exercise in three to five-minute sessions

Try to ensure that the four players who are walking towards the blue cone start at about the same time

Make sure there are enough balls at pawns A and B.

You can do this exercise with six to eight players.

If you have enough players, you can make two squares.

Explanation soccer training

Player A plays the ball on the ground to his teammate at pawn C. The player at pawn B does the same to the player at pawn D.

The player at pawn C actively asks for the ball from the player at pawn A and then immediately plays it to the player at pawn F.

The player at pawn C first makes a pre-action and then asks for the ball from the player at pawn A, after this, he plays the ball directly to the player standing near pawn F. The player standing near pawn D does the same to the player near pawn C.

Player A and B have passed to Pawns E and F after the pass and are now defenders. The players at Pawns E and F turn away from players A and B who are now at their backs.

Players A and B, after their defensive action, run on to Pawns C and D. The players at Pawns C and D run on to Pawns E and F. The players who have turned away from their defender go to Pawns A and B.

Coaching moments

The ball speed must remain high, so the balls must be hit hard. This is best done over the ground at a short distance (15 to 20 metres) and through the air at a long distance (35 to 40 metres) At a distance of about 8 meters it is best to bounce the ball.

Make sure the players of pawns C, D, E and F have an active attitude and stand on their front feet. They really have to want the ball and must also make a front pass.

Make sure that, after turning in, the players turn open and place their bodies between the defenders and the ball They should also keep the ball close to them When they have opened up, a slight acceleration takes place
