Tips / Hints / Emphasis
Players of defence must have the idea that they must make the offence always take the extra dribble, make the extra pass and make the extra penetration. Recovery and communication are essential in this drll. The lead defender must take up defensive position and not allow to much ground to the offence. It is important to emphasise take up position and pressure the ball gain the advantage! The second defender must establish defensive position keeping his man in front of him away from the ball but still be able to help and recover and also close out/deny his man.
