Groups of 6 with a ball, 3 attackers, 3 defenders Two attackers set up as feeders lateral to one another, the other attacker down court Defenders set up in a triangle, one front to cover ball, other offset other side space and third offset to the 3rd attacker to âtemptâ in the feed Feeders pass to each other (2-4 passes) but always looking for the âopenâ feed to the back space, which that back defender can have a go at! Rotate after 3 intercepts around the positions Discuss: Where and when they could implement on court? Who makes the call?You could add in another atacker or a cone and the 3rd defender is marking a third party and judging when they could come off
