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!
Time waits for no man, so use these 8 speed practices to get your players pushing the ball out in front and advance the ball full-steam ahead up the court!
Create space in congested areas with clever movement by the players off the ball. Teach your team how to set the screen to make space for the ball carrier to attack into.
