Simple setup, more detailed coaching points.
This session is highly adaptable to your training environment and the space available to your session. The simple setup is designed to limit "coaching the drill", shifting the focus to your team's game model and principles of the high press.
Objective: Improve high press and responding to pressing cues
Team Tactical Principles: Press situations, stay compact
What: Improve funneling and responding to pressing cues in the high press. Get and stay organized.
When: When opponents build-out and play into our pressing cues
Where: Attacking third
Who: 7, 9, and 11. Secondarily, our 6, 8, and 10
Why: We want to win the ball back high up the pitch to create better scoring chances. We can do that by funneling play and always pressing in the identified situations (which are coaching points in this session).
