Coaching Corner

1 vs 1 defending

Aim - To improve the ability to defend in 1 vs 1 situations. To enhance footwork and ability to change direction quickly and effectively when defending.

Key Points

  1. 1. Look at the body positioning of defender, ensure they are low and light on their toes when engaging the attacker.
  2. 2. If attacker is predominantly one footed, see if the defender is intelligent enough to show them onto their weaker side.
  3. 3. If the defender is outwitted, do they have the pace to recover and tackle.
