The art of defending

When you play against good team, it’s not likely that they will give a ball away so easily. So, we are teaching players how to defend successfully and gain possession of the ball.

What is exactly the aim of defending? Here are 5 of them:

  1. Not conceding a goal
  2. Denying opponents to shoot at goal
  3. Denying opponents to arrive in goal scoring position
  4. Not letting the opponent to progress in buildup phase
  5. Winning the ball back

The focus must be on individual defending, as well as on the group defending. It is important that players understand principles of defending in both situations.

These are the topics we will train and discuss this week so players can see all the options they have when it comes of defending. We can speak about it forever as it has so many levels of understanding and perspectives. Training sessions go easy and breezy with lot of laughter and joy cause it’s Monday and a whole new area of practice.
