Session 12 - 16

SESSION: Futsal – defensive techniques

    Former Santos futsal coach Luis de Barros delivers a futsal practice focusing on defending with grassroots players.

    Key objectives

    During this session players will develop their understanding of:

    • defending 1v2
    • body shape, timing of interception and cutting off passing options
    • pressure, cover and balance.

    Defending 1v2


    Working as a three: pressure, cover and balance


    Defending 1v2 to goal



    After you have watched this session, ask yourself the following questions:

    • How would you adapt or tweak the practice to make it appropriate to your own players?
    • What additional challenges could you set to make the practice easier or harder for individuals or your group?
