Practicing the body angles in 3s with an attacker, defender and a feeder in a small space. To start, the A remains static and no ball is thrown. The defender drives out, touches down on the cone, turns and drives back to the A. Repeat x 3 on each side. Progression 1: After the defender has returned, they circumvent the front of the attacker before repeat. Progression 2: The F sends a lifted ball to the A (who remains static) as the defender reaches the cone (no need to hand touch down, just push off the outside foot). The defender is looking to hit front space aheaf of attacker, verical jump for the intercept. Progression 3: Attacker now becomes active and drives forward to move the defender. The defender is working to keep on the inside of the attacker. Once the attacker reaches the cone, they are turning to look to recieve the straight pass if possible. Defenders are looking to keep them to edge. Feeder should send the same lifted ball straight regardless! If defender keeps the attacker wide, once ball is released, they can look for intercept. If defender releases the attacker too soon, it's more likely the attacker will cut through to get that pass!
feet under the body body angled at drive forward and back speed on the return drive, but controlled enough not to contact retreat and vertical jump keep angle on attacker first, only release once ball released!
