Build your team’s defensive process!

The effectiveness of a team’s defensive process is extremely important in terms of the tactics adopted for the game.

The defensive process of a team goes through a good positioning in the field of the game, knowing how to occupy the opponent’s spaces and anticipating their movements and offensive moves and, ultimately, cutting the ball effectively, avoiding the foul!

For this, in addition to defining in extreme detail the positioning and tactical construction of your team, it is also important to return the individual technique of each player so that nothing fails at the most important moment, in the game!

To help you better develop your team’s defensive process, we have prepared a new video with defending exercises.
