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 12-meters 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 at 3v3 and one side a 3v2. A defender from the 3v3 needs to slide over to the 3v2 to help. Explain there must be a lot of communication.
