First exercise of the series about 1 v 1 duels entirely performed on the rhombus.
This first exercise has the goal to coach the attacking phase, trying to finish as fast as possible, under two different types of pressure of the opponent, depending on the development of the move:
- with the defender on late and in recovery of the space (the forward has already the possession of the ball)
- with the defending player pressure even before the ball is received (the forward has not the possession of the ball yet)
An important variation is the chance for the center player to decide which is the teammate in possession.
The receiver may now be the closest side player, or the other one on the farthest cone; this way the distance and the space the defender must recover is different. Consequently, the time available to the attacker for the conclusion is different.
