Defending the 2 v 1 Counter | When to Press? (10-P2)

This Level 1, opposed practice is the 2nd part of Theme 10: Defensive Pressure. We begin with 2 players at each end who must combine before attacking a single defender.

Set Up:

12 Players

15-25 Mins

30x40 Yds


3 Bib Sets

2 Minis

The player who plays a bounce pass must then support the attacking player from the opposite side aware of the offside line.

Defending players decide how and when to apply pressure, with both pairs attacking at the same time.
