In this workshop we focus on 1v1 defending. This is a priority development area for every age group and level of the game. We need to shift the focus away from only coaching team shape and positioning, to sessions that encourage the development of individual defensive skills, attributes and abilities. Players in this age group are still mastering the technical aspects of defending as well as developing tactical understanding, and that’s what our coaching should reflect. During this workshop we will look at how we can help develop all players to be more confident and effective when out of possession . We will examine the different technical attributes required to defend in 1v1 situations, transferable individual defending skills, position specific skills and how to inspire positive decision making. What are the learning outcomes? We will explore how we can develop confident, technically excellent players who are self-assured when defending in 1v1 situations, focusing on:
• Technical aspects of defending as the first player
• Decision making as the first player linked to principles of play
• Transferable and position specific skills
