By working on your players' defensive action you'll be able to improve their timing and accuracy for when they make the drive to cut in front of their player and steal the ball - If they make the move too early the other team will have time to change their pass and if they move too late the ball will have already passed them by!
What's in the Session?
To get your team in the right mindset we start this session with a fast running drill - getting players warm and ready to use a quick burst of acceleration which they'll be needing later when they're practising their speedy, ball stealing drives!
Stage 3 of defence:
In stage 3 of defence players should be marking the space - anticipating the pass and preparing to drive in front to snatch it away.
Don?t underestimate the value of defending. It?s the only way to start an attack!
Set-pieces are your chance to create a sustained attack and maximise possession of the ball.
Pass, move; pass, move. You?ve heard is before but you?ve never done it like this!
Get your players creating more attacking options with clever skills in order to lose and outwit defenders.

The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
