This full training session focuses on the ability of the back four to defend balls crossed into the penalty area and then step up to effectively press the opposition forward and midfielders. The session examines players responsibilities when defending serves into the penalty box and how they should function as a group once the ball is cleared out of the penalty box.

At the 2009 NSCAA convention, Dick Bate presented a session titled "Modern Possession". As teams improve their transition and quickly set up within a block to defend, there has been an emphasis on maintaining possession in order to break through or around the block. This session focused on player's ability to always play forward rather than make square or back passes.
