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!
Get your defenders reading the situation, reacting to the ball and performing clean interceptions to regain possession
Get your players driving onto the ball with this attacking session, helping them to lose their marker and create space
Having the shooters to put the points on the board is vital. Get your players in the attacking circle full of confidence with this shooting session.
A great pass is made by a perfect delivery and a concise lead to offer the passing option. Get your players moving for each other to create connections over the whole court.
Encourage your players to find space and start thinking tactically by being more aware of other players on court as well as improving their ball handling skills

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.
