Defend Along the Line


Split field in 2 as shown in the picture
Divide players into two groups: Attackers (A) and Defenders (D)
Use a GK



Play starts with the goalkeeper throwing or rolling the ball to the first attacker who will try to score. At the same time the first defender starts closing down the attacker and try to defend by forcing the attacker to go wide and get the ball. If successful he’ll try to pass the ball between the cones (or the small net).

Coaching Points

Defender must close down the attacker and force him to go towards the out line.
