After practising marking the ball in the first few drills the focus of this session then turns to improving communication at the back - making sure your players talk so that they always have a player marking the ball when your team's not in possession!
A tight defence that communicates well will help you to win games - you'll concede fewer goals and will need fewer to win. Communication is key to good team work!
Starting with a thorough warm up, consisting of running, jumping and stretching, we then get to work - developing players' shadowing and shielding skills before putting their skills to the test in a final full court game!
Develop your players understanding of the importance of fast footwork to deceive their opponent and gain more chances on goal.
Develop your player's ability to execute powerful, accurate passing in a game in order to gain dominance over the opposition.
10 fun games and ideas to improve your warm up - Bring the WOW factor to your next practice and prepare your players, mentally and physically!
