  Training: Defending  

The primary job of the defender is to deny penetration. The defender will try to keep the attacker from shooting, passing forward or dribbling forward. The way the defender does this is to pressure. Here, positioning is everything. It is not enough for the defender to know what to do if they are not in the position to be able to do it. There are six priorities for the pressuring defender.
  1. Intercept balls passed to the attacker.
  2. Tackle the ball as the attacker makes their turn.
  3. Force the attacker to screen the ball with their first touch.
  4. Tackle as the attacker is half way through their turn as the attacker attempts to face the defender.
  5. Steer the attacker into the least dangerous space.
  6. Recovery runs.
