Develop your player's attacking capabilities, to successfully get free from the defender and maintain possession.

Preview Plan

Description

Split your players into 3s and select 2 lines on the court (ideally getting players to work within a third of the court each).

On the whistle the attacker (white) sprints to either line. The attacker should use a sudden change of direction and sprint to receive the ball from the feeder, away from the defender who is marking them.

Coaching points

Encourage players to drive out to meet the ball - not wait for the ball to come to them.

Try to get players to land on their outside foot.

Players need to explore different ways of getting away from the defender these should include:

  • Dodging
  • Change of pace
  • Change of direction

More able players should be looking to use their body to fake a movement to deceive the defender.
