Offense, Defense, Midfield
Works on aggressive/smart double teaming and defensive shifting and communication. Attack movement and quick passing.
Description of Drill-Execution
Start with splitting the attack zone in half so that each set of 3v3 is only working on one side. You need 3 defenders and 3 attackers on each side. Start the drill on a whistle and with a definitive double team. Play the 3v3 live until the ball is in the cage or has been cleared to a specified area. Emphasize the use of communication and defensive slides to help. Also show the attack to change speeds and make cuts to ball, not just side-to-side.
- Double teaming
- Defensive slides
- Clearing space offensively
- Ball Movement
- Denying cuts and passes defensively
Variations/Progression/Increased difficulty (As your players improve their skills incorporate the following…)
You can make one side a 3 v 3 and one side a 3 v 2. A defender from the 3 v 3 needs to slide over to the 3 v 2 to help. Explain there must be a lot of communication for the drill to be effective.
