Developing confident, decisive players up and down the court

Develop your players decision making and communication skills in order to gain or maintain possession of the ball and control the pace of the game.

Preview Plan

Description

Use an area half the length/width of the court with 2 attackers, 2 defenders and 2 trailing players.

The attackers are working to get the ball to travel from one end to the other using their passes and the defenders are trying to intercept.

Trailers need to stay behind the ball and can receive and pass from an attacker if the other attacker isn't free.

If the ball is intercepted then the defenders become the new attackers.

Pairs should keep score.

Coaching points

  • Trailing players stay behind the ball as options for the attackers
  • Attackers can take on defence and get free or re-offer when back pass to a trailer is used
  • Players can pass back to a trailer to help them get free
  • Free attackers balancing space and providing options
  • Decision making by ball carrier to pass forward or back
    • Recognise which player is free
  • If the ball is passed backwards there needs to be movement/options with attackers re-offering for the ball
  • Ball carrier should pass and scan
    • See where teammates are
    • Options: Follow pass or run wide and deep to get the next phase
