Divide your team in pairs. Let them stay with ca. 3 m (ca.12ft.) space between, facing each other. One ball pr. pair.


Player with ball passes to the other, runs after the pass and play aggressiv D on 'dead' ball. The player holding the ball makes three passing fakes, wich the defender tries to cover. The defencive player then slides zig-zag back in starting position (maks. 2 m.(ca.6 ft.)each direction.

The D-player recieves the ball (hard good chest-pass, passes imideately back, runs up and plays 'dead' ball. The drill goes on without breakes for 1-1 1/2 min. Then switch.

This drill teaches the players to run out on ball, adjust into D-position the last steps and then to be aggressiv. It also teaches good defensiv footwork and is a very effectiv conditioning drill.

Number of Players:





You can also add a shot-fake. Teach your players to stay low, with one arm covering the ball, and NEVER jump or getting up in straight-up position.
