Attacking Principle: Fast, accurate footwork to outwit the defence!
A players attacking skills are often the extra touch of quality that makes the difference between winning and losing a tight game. Develop your players attacking options by teaching them how to lose their defender through various clever footwork techniques.
What's in the session?
Begin the session with a thorough and fun warm-up of street ball so your players are ready to take on a physically and mentally demanding session. The session progresses into the technical practices, focussing particularly on the attackers footwork. Leading is a massively aspect of the game and with space a rare commodity on the court, being able to lose your defender and make connection with effective footwork is a necessity. The session works with multiple practices working on:
- The 4 Corner Cut Back
- Diagonal Cut To Lead
- 1 vs 1 Fast, decisive footwork
- Reverse Pivot in 3's
Finish the session with a modified game that encourages the players to incorporate these new skills into a match-specific scenario and develop their understanding of how accurate and decisive footwork will outwit the defence.
