When defense is discussed it is often in the context of the team. Yes, the defensive system employed by a coach and the tackling drills , whether a man- to-man or zone, is important, but what is as important and often overlooked is the individual technical and tactical defensive abilities of the individual players.

All coaches want players who are aggressive on defense, but if this aggressiveness is not tempered with sound technical skills and tactical decisions, the aggressiveness can lead to breakdowns in the team defense. Common individual mistakes include a player overrunning an attacker rather than closing down and containing, players not tackling at the proper moment, or a player reverting to slide tackling in the open field as a first resort rather than a last resort.

Match Conditions Goals are moved back to the end line and a full scrimmage is played with no restrictions. Defensive principles are still emphasized in the scrimmage. Play should be stopped if a teachable moment occurs. Since the theme of the session Is defense, if an individual defense lapse occurs the coach should address it and not write it off as a good play on the part of the attacker?

Conclusion Individuals make up a collective defensive effort. An individual breakdown can and in most cases will lead to a collective team breakdown. Some coaches may have the tendency to focus on offensive concepts and neglect the defense. This will catch up with the team in the long run.
