Pressing session: zones

FA coach developer, Peter Augustine, delivers a coaching session on pressing with a group of grassroots football players.

This session helps players to: 

  • work out when and how to press the ball 
  • decide how many players to commit to pressing the ball 
  • understand the importance of compactness in central areas 
  • communicate with teammates.
