This plan teachers your team to mark the space (not the players) and attack the ball when they are on defence. By being positive in defence your players can put pressure on the other team, forcing the error or making the interception.
What's in the Session?
To get your players pouncing like a panther we work on your players' movement and fast hand skills, with a quick review of basic handling (read the comments below to see how much fun your team will have with these warm ups).
This plan then gets players practising driving onto the ball, reading the game and making the interception. To bring everything together we end this training with a final full-court conditioned game.
Don't step back and invite the opposition to attack when your team is on the defensive. Take the game to them with this attacking-minded defending session!
Develop your player's ability to execute a strong, direct and accurate pass to help maintain possession of the ball.
Develop your player's understanding of how to use their body to dominate and limit the space available to their opponents focusing on a centre pass scenario.
Ensure your team get their basic defence correct in order to build and develop their skills to secure to possession.
