Your players have scored a point but before they've had a chance to blink the other team has reset and is in the shooting third. Your centre and defenders need to work together to defend a centre pass, through intercepting, forcing the ball to be received up court and stopping a deep 2nd phase.
What?s in the Session?
A defensive basketball style warm up, 3 drills focused on quick, clean interceptions and making players aware of the timing of their runs- going in for the ball too soon can have the same outcome as going in late! Then a further 3 drills set in a game situation to get your centre and defenders working together, communicating to dictate the movements of the attackers.
Defence is the first form of attack so make sure that your players are more than capable of defending to a high standard with this session!
