Dominant defending body positioning to deny space

Develop your player's ability to have a strong, dominant and decisive body position to deny and close down space for their opponent up and down the court.

Preview Plan

Description

Have 2 feeders positioned on the third line about 5m apart.

An attacker starts just off the semicircle, with a defender behind them.

Feeders pass side to side and the defender repositions to the ball side but still behind the attacker.

The feeders can pass in to the attacker and when this happens the defender cuts in front for the intercept

The defender works for 4 intercepts and then players rotate roles.

Coaching points

  • Quick feet from the defender to make the intercept
  • The defender needs to be angled behind and to the side slightly
  • They need to cut onto ball to avoid contact
