This week's session aims to get your players to take responsibility for the man they're marking, learning to shadow and follow their opponent - ideal for beginners or players in need of a defensive recap.
Never underestimate the importance of a solid defence!
What's in the session?
To ensure your players communicate well and pick up the attackers as they drive into your half, this session starts with a warm-up game of Cat and Mouse and a challenging muscular endurance drill. We then look to practice shuffling with bent knees, hands up and quick reactions before finishing with a half court man-marking game, giving your players a chance to show what they've got in what should be a very low scoring game!
Get your young players enjoying basketball in this fun session that will keep them interested and improve their skills.
No rebounds, no rings! Get your players to be first to the ball with the offensive rebound and see what a difference it makes to their attacking game!
"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
Give it a try - it's better in the app
