A ball and a field.

Central Defenders, full-backs and also defensive oriented midfielders.

As a central defender who’s defending a lot in their own box, being able to clear the ball is an essential tool to possess. Also something a full back should be able to, and maybe even defensive midfielders.

Therefore we developed some ways to practice this aspect of the game, like shown in the video. We recommend doing as many different ways and angles as possible, because the important thing in this drill is to learn the technique and timing of hitting and clearing a jumping ball that is more unpredictable, rather than just kicking a predictable ball at the ground.
