Defensive Interceptions - Be first to the ball!

Rating: 5
from 1 members ratings

This Sportplan Sessions looks at how you can get your players reacting to visual cues from their opposition to better time their defensive drives and improve their intercepting success rate!

It's not just mind readers like Derren Brown who can tell what other people are thinking - some of the best defenders can spot quite clearly when the opposition are about to make the pass which gives them the ideal opportunity to dive in and make the interception!

To get your players driving at the right time, and not too early so that they give the other team time to play a different pass, we get players moving with the ball before then setting up some one vs one intercepting drills to make sure they know how to read their opposition and stay one step ahead!

Watch their eyes, drive and steal the ball!
