DESCRIPTION

*** AUDIO DESCRIPTION ON ***

Coaching Objective:

To give the attacker a selection of skills to be able to eliminate the defender when on the baseline in the circle.

Purpose:

When in a tight area in the circle and on the baseline, the attacker is in control of the situation, therefore having the skills to elimintate in such a dangerous attacking position will create threatening goal scoring opportunities.

COACHING POINTS

  1. Receive the ball on the open stick side and immediately get it outside the right foot to be able to carry the ball with the view of the whole circle.
  2. Slowing the running and show to pass down the left foor of the defender, shifting their weight.
  3. Drag the ball to the left, keeping the ball on the open stick side and the feet infront of the ball.
  4. Accelerate past the defenders open stick side to eliminate.

The original body position sets up this skill, putting the doubt into the defenders mind as to whether the attacker will pass, look for a foot or attempt to eliminate. By having the right carrying position, it gives the attacker the ability to carry out all three options.
