Key Session Messages
How quickly can I press an attacker to stop them from scoring?
As soon as the attacker receives the ball, can I be really quick to put pressure on?
After I press, can I use my strength as well to get the ball?
Can I guess where the attacker might dribble so I can press & block his dribbling lane?
Defending Based Games
I win an individual player point every time I tackle
I win an individual player point every time I intercept a pass
We win team points every time we keep a clean sheet
We win bonus team points every time we defend really well as a team
How can me & my partner stop attackers in a 2v2?
If I press the player with the ball, my team mate has to block the passing lane to the opponents partner?
Can me & my partner 'hunt' the ball together so we are 2v1 against the attacker?
Can we show fantastic team work to work together to defend successfully?
Well done to our Players of the Week below who stood out within their groups.
