Cooperation in Defence - Communication at the Back!

Who's defending who? If your players are having this discussion then it's probably already too late. That's why this week we're working on your players' communication at the back.

Cooperation is key in defence - to achieve this you will need your back-court players to communicate and work as a unit, stepping out to prevent the shot while your other defending players move across to fill the gaps and prevent the through ball to the opposition's pivot.

To teach your players how to work as a unit and when (and when not to) step forward this intermediate-level session gets your defenders to practice making decisions as early as possible, shouting "mine" or "I've got" - practising defending against a number of different attacking scenarios.

Don't give the other team an easy shooting opportunity due to bad defending - make the right decisions at the back to pressure the ball and win back possession!
