WA and GA run to the middle 1/3 and back on the way back the feeder passes the ball to either player. The GS has to move and stand on the opposite side of the GK to where the ball is passed. The initial pass is followed by a lob pass across the circle to then play the ball into the GS.
Make the most of every center pass by encouraging your players to drive onto the ball and make a solid connection with the passer.
Players take it in turns to run through the defender's areas as pairs. The player without the ball leads into the space. Working together they should try to pass and move, maintaining possession of the ball, from one side to the other.
If players successfully pass and support each other to the other side without losing the ball they pass the ball to the next pair and then join the back of the queue.
If the ball is intercepted though the pair who lost the ball become the defenders and the original defenders take the runner's place at the back of the queue.
Split players into pairs with one ball between them.
The worker (player 2) drives from the centre to a cone and then back to the centre again to receive the ball from the feeder (player 1).
The worker then passes back to the feeder and repeats. Each worker repeats this 10 times before changing over.
Set up a triangle with cones. 2 players are attackers, 2 are defenders. Attacker starts on the top of the triangle and the other starts on one of the bottom corners. They are defended by 2 defenders the whole time. The person at the top of the triangle starts with the ball, passes to the other attacker and runs into the triangle to receive the ball back. Again they pass to the other attacker and cross the bottom line of the triangle to be outside of the triangle. They receive the ball back again and the other attacker runs to take their space at the top of the triangle. The attacker behind the line passes the ball to the new top attacker, takes one of the bottom corner spaces and the drill repeats.
Set up a triangle of attackers (3m apart) with a defender in the middle of them. The person at the top of the triangle starts with the ball, passes to one of the other attackers and runs into the triangle to receive the ball back. They then pass again to either attacker and cross the bottom line of the triangle to be outside of the triangle. They receive the ball back again and the first attacker they passed to runs to take their space at the top of the triangle. The attacker behind the line passes the ball to the new top attacker, takes the free space and the drill repeats.
i 4s 1 ball. 2 feeders with the ball. GS and GK in the circle GS has to get free to receive the ball and if she feels she is in a shooting position she can take the shot or she feeds the ball back to the other feeder.(the one that did not pass the original ball).
Split group into 3 equal teams. Ideally 6 per team. 1 team is the attackers, 1 team are defenders, 1 team is resting off the court. Split court in half. Half of the defence and attack are restricted to defending half of court while the rest of the players are restricted to attacking half of the court. 1 A starts with the ball on the baseline. Attackers have 5 minutes to get the ball to the other end of the court and score as many times as they can. If the ball is tipped, intercepted or dropped the ball is taken back to the start. After 5 minutes, defenders become attackers, attackers come off to rest, resting team become defenders.
The feeders are positioned adjacent to one another, instead of opposite - with an attacker and defender inside the square. Within the square, there will be 2 defenders and 1 attacker. The attacker can offload to either feeder. However, if the attacker cannot get free within 3 seconds OR the attacker is holding the side of the free feeder - the ball can swing to the free feeder. The ball can only be swung once, at which point it must be passed to the attacker. The attacker must still try to get free each time for the first feed. The practice allows the attacker to work on a 2 on 1 situation.
The feeders are positioned adjacent to one another, at the top and side of the circle - with a shooter and defender inside the circle. The shooter can offload to either feeder. If the shooter cannot get free within 3 seconds OR the attacker is holding the side of the free feeder - the ball can swing to the free feeder. The ball can only be swung once, at which point it must be passed to the shooter. The shooter must still try to get free each time for the first feed. Once the shooter has receieved the ball they can put up a shot.
