This is a game play drill to develop the Block Down


  • Place a cone approximately 40m directly out from goal
  • Place a second cone approximately 20 from goal to one side
  • Divide the players into pairs; one defender and one attacker
  • Each attacker in turn solos towards goal shadowed by the defender
  • Once within shooting range the attacker attempts to shoot for a point and the defender attempts to block
  • Reverse the roles after a set number of attempts

STEP Variation

Players at the beginning – Increase the number of defenders to increase the occasions of blocking
