This session gets your defenders to push up and put pressure on the other team as early as possible, before they try to shoot.
By defending higher up the court your players should be making more interceptions and will be able to do more than simply defend around their own circle.
What's in the Session?
To get your players using fast feet to run out and close down the other team this session starts with a game of Line Ball and then gets your defensive players to practice running out to the attackers, looking to push the ball away and win possession.
We then finish with another game of Line Ball to allow your players to improve on their on their performance at the beginning of the session and to allow them to practice being more proactive in the defence!
Make training a bit more competitive. Put your players up against each other in this fun mini-matches session and see just how much they get out of it with some fun, fierce competition!
Defending has grown into an art. Get your defence structured, ordered and ready for anything an attack has in their armoury.
"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.
