Pre-Academy Centre Review
Session Dates: W/C 14th & 21st January 2019
Learning Block: Defending Turnovers
Session Focus: 'How do me & my team stop the attackers from scoring?' & 'Defending Based Games'
Our session focus of 'How do me & my team stop the attackers from scoring?' is important for our players to understand the importance of defending as part of a team & the individual challenge they have when the other team has the ball.
SESSION KEY MESSAGES
HOW DO ME & MY TEAM STOP THE ATTACKERS FROM SCORING?:
During each game, my team need to have really good positioning so we have someone defending (protecting) the goal & someone to press the ball quickly.
If I'm the closest player to the ball & the attacker, I must go & press as quickly as possible to stop him from attacking me.
I need to be a really good teammate to help my team if/when they need my help to tackle - I can't just stand & watch the other team attacking.
Well done to our Players of the Week below who stood out within their groups.
Next session - 'How quick can I win the ball back when my team loses it?'
