In this week's Animated Drills Video I share a 3 v 3 game that focuses on defensive principles. I used it because I wanted to go over these ideas with my players but I wanted to do it in a fun, game-like environment. This proved to be a great way to work on pressure, cover and balance as well as the importance of communication. The attacking team is left to decide how they want to try and score while I coach the defending team to close openings and limit goal scoring opportunities.
