Montz former pro and founder of OnlineSoccerAcademy.com. Today we are learning how to pass out of pressure
as a defender; this will seem simple but it’s advanced. It’s not easy to make it look easy.
This OSA video is sponsored by our parent company BelieveinitApparel.com. A lot of defenders look like this when they
get the ball under pressure. Yes, sometimes as a defender you want to clear
the ball. As they say, “When in doubt, kick it out” but the best defenders are great passers
out of the back. They can distribute the ball simply and kick start the offense. Key Point #1 – Check your Shoulder! Prior
to receiving a pass and throughout the game regularly check your shoulders. You are looking
for space, teammates and opposing attackers. For more tips on how to do that watch our
“Speed of Play” videos here Key Point #2 – Drop off or Move to create
space between you and the attackers. If an attacker is near you and you need to get open
for a pass don’t just stand there. Drop to create space. Lots of defenders have the first instinct
to run forward but typically there best run to create space is backwards. Plus by dropping
backwards they keep their team shape and don’t crowd the midfielders’ space. Key Point #3 – Take your 1st Touch away from
the attacker. For example if the attacker is on your left side take your touch to your
right. What does this create? It creates space and… and Time! Each level you move up you
have less and less time on the ball so you need to learn how to create more of it. Key Point #4 – Keep it simple and make a pass!
Take 1 maybe 2 touches and then make a simple pass. I like to keep it simple in the defensive
third and be creative in the attacking third when it’s on to. This means for you as the
defender, you are not the #10 playmaker. So pass it to your midfielders or other defenders
and keep the ball moving. Yes, occasionally hit a long ball over the top, switch the field
or chip the ball to a forward but for most part keep the ball moving. Key Point #5 – Don’t be to casual! Some defenders
are to casual and slow on the ball. I’m not saying go 100 miles per hour and be rushed
but don’t be to laid back. That is when attackers sneak up on you and mistakes happen. Key Point #6 – Don’t be scared to just clear
it! Do your best to pass out of the back but yes, sometimes there is just to much pressure
from attackers or to high of a chance that your pass will be intercepted. In this case
kick the ball as far up the field or out of bounds as you can! When in doubt, kick it
out. It’s better then being scored on Equipment Needed:
For this exercise you will need as many balls as you have, a partner and 7 cones. Before we get into the exercise I want to
ask… Do you consider yourself a Motivated Athlete? If yes, you will love our Believe
in it® Apparel! Shop and find out more at http://www.BelieveinitApparel.com. Our shirts
are the same quality you expect, but the inspiration you want. Exercise Player Can Do:
Now for the exercise. Set up all the balls at the top cone. This is where your partner
will stand. Then 10 yards away is where your start cone will be. Behind this cone is another
cone about 5 yards away. At 45 degree angles in front of you about 25 yards away are two
small cone goals. These are your imaginary teammates you will be passing to. We will do two different versions of this
exercise: one with pressure and one without. 1st Version without Pressure. You drop from your start cone to the cone
behind you checking your shoulders as you drop and your teammate passes you the ball.
Then take a touch in the direction you want to pass and make your pass through the cone
goals. Try to do this in two touches. Jog back to the start cone and repeat. Repeat
reps until you run out of balls. Then do a few sets switching with your partner. 2nd Version with Pressure The exercise will be exactly the same now
except that when your teammate passes you the ball they will now close you down like
an attacker. They shouldn’t try to win the ball, just put pressure on you. Variations of this exercise would include
changing up positions of the cone goals as your passing targets. Set them up as if they
were your fullbacks, wingers or center mids. I’d even suggest making one cone goal about
30 yards up the field as if you were chipping to a forward. Some things that could be going wrong. If
you are getting the ball as a defender and the attackers are to close to you then you
are not moving. Make sure you move or drop to create space. If you don’t know what to do with the ball
when you get it then you are not checking your shoulders. Work on speed of play regularly

Communicate when you make a pass by saying Man On or Turn. Be a leader on the field and
make the game easier for your teammates by letting them know what to do. Plus, coaches
always love leaders! Hope you enjoyed this Online Soccer Academy
