Passing Web: Support Play

Rating: 3
from 1 members ratings

The Passing Web has so far developed the players pre-scanning to receive the ball and their post-scanning to make the pass. Now, to complete the web, we look at the support play to create options again to begin the process over once more.

After delivering the perfect pass, it’s important to continue the attack by getting ahead of the pass to re-lead for the ball back. This will help sustain an attack and make you much more of a threat going forwards.

What's in the Session?

On completing a full physical warm up, the first part of the session gets the players understanding the basic ideas of how and why they must support the play after making a pass. The game of Chaos will help develop their communication amongst teammates. The game will force them to continue practicing the previous parts of the Passing Web in order to be successful. The session progresses, continuing to develop the players mentality to see them making a pass and accelerating through to offer support and re-lead when working towards the circle. The final modified game brings all aspects of the Passing Web together by working through three zones, emphasising all aspects of making, receiving a pass and re-leading for the next connection.

After nailing the process to make the perfect pass, don’t dit back and admire, get your players pushing to receive the next pass and do it all over again! Keep working through the Passing Web Series to create players comfortable with making connections across the field!
