Defenders Union will dive into many nuisances and skills involved with defending. Covering all aspects for 'getting behind the ball' , building from the back (distribution/looking after the ball), attack and defending headers (use of soft soccer balls), transitions in the game, tackling, the use of the body and overall developing the right mentality to add some bite to a players game.
From 'old school defenders such as Wes Morgan (Leicester City Captain), to modern day centre backs such as John Stones (Manchester City), as well as 'destroyers' in midfield such as N'Golo Kante (Chelsea), Defenders Union will cover many areas and positions on the pitch.
Over 4 sessions, players will be tested (physically and technically) while offered many ideas to take with them back into their respective teams.
Note - these sessions are designed for Rep level players from U13-U14. Only 12 spots will be available.
