Defending Phases of Play

Defending Phases of Play are more realistic soccer practices designed to simulate a specific sections of play within a real football match in the defending phase. Here we train units and whole team understanding of the principles of play and tactical understanding. Usually this form of training takes place over 2/3rds of a full size football pitch and focuses on a specific aspect of play (defending when outnumbered, defending, marking and covering, etc). The team being worked with can be overloaded (e.g. 9vs8, 8vs7) and conditions placed on the other team to further create a good learning environment. Various start positions can also be employed to create the game scenario desired.
