At Tecnico Coaching we believe that if a player has their body between the ball and opponent, the opposition should not be able to get the ball back. It is important that all players know how to get their body in a strong position to protect the ball.
The programme ensures players are confident when protecting the ball and regaining possession of the ball. We encourage players to stabilise their core and work on their balance to protect the ball.
Players should work on the physical attributes (strength conditioning) post 16 years of age or when physically developed. Players who have learnt the importance of balance and the position of the body when protecting the ball will have an advantage over players that have not learnt this.
