Players work on defensive fundamentals in a 3-on-3 setting.
Mark off two fields that are approximately 15 yards wide by 20 yards long. Put a small goal at each end.
- Play three on three soccer with the focus on defensive technique.
- Tell players “don’t stab” at the ball.
- Also, remind them to remain “goalside” when defending.
- Defender should move quickly to the ball. Then slow down quickly.
- He or she should also defend at an angle to make dribbling difficult.
