Press if we can win the ball within 4 seconds when the opposition:

  • Close the ball/player/space if you are near the ball when it is lost
  • If you are close to the ball, move towards the ball so you can potentially intercept it
  • If you are further away from the ball, move towards the space near the ball or a player

Why this is important

  • It is important to try and win the ball back quickly to stop the opponent from being able to counter-attack quickly
  • You may also be able to win the ball back yourself and therefore start a counter-attack for your team
