Marking the ball - Shut out Defence

Rating: 4
from 13 members ratings
In this Session we work on getting your players to make themselves as big as possible when faced with the oncoming opposition - putting their hands in the air, stretching out and getting ready to jump to close down any passing outlets!

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!
