Who's going to make the final cut? It's never easy running a selection session which is why we thought we'd help by bringing you this plan packed with competitive head to head drills.
Completing the puzzle
Picking a complete winning team isn't just about going for the best scorers or most confident players. For example, a team full of 12 defensive specialists are not going to be great on offence. Instead it's about finding the pieces of the puzzle that fit together, so make sure you choose a mixture of scorers, defenders, rebounders, role players, athletes, big guys and passers.
What's in the session?
To help you analyse your players, this session has 10 drills that cover a wide variety of skills in competitive situations. Allowing you to observe players in many match-scenarios and select who you feel will form your best team.
