Senior Session: 3D Skills - Open and Reverse stick lift

Rating: 4
from 5 members ratings

In this session we aim to help your players get the ball up and over - using 3D skills (playing the ball just off the ground) to outwit their opposition and lift the ball over the defender's stick.

There's a definite art to this technique though - first of all players must master how to lift the ball (often it's easier to lift the ball if a change of direction is involved). Once players have learnt how to lift the ball they'll need to practice it on the move, and then at speed - after all, a skill is only ever a skill when your players can preform it under pressure!

Teach your players how to lift the ball safely, and within the rules of the game, to outfox their opponents and add another string to their attacking bow!
