“Defensive footwork? That sounds boring!” Well, it doesn’t have to be! During this session, we will demonstrate multiple drills that incorporate cones and ladders while making it a competitive and game-like atmosphere around the 8M. It is so important for our defenders to work on their footwork as well as containing the attacker, so these drills make it efficient for our team to do these things at the same time. We will also discuss a few key concepts for coming up with new footwork drills for any position. My hope is that by the end of the session you have some new drills and ideas to bring back to your own team AND can associate FOOTWORK with FUN.
