Players can lose their markers with a dodge, a feint, a change of pace or even as little as a glance in the opposite direction. All of these are essential space making tools that every player should be equipped with and we intend to give them another tool in their arsenal - the roll!
The roll is a 360 degree rotation, preceded by a fake step forwards, used by players to lose their marker as they spin behind their marker to get into space to receive a pass.
Not only does this movement create space for the player performing the move it can also be used to draw a defender out of the way, leaving lots of space for another player to run into! Once mastered your players will be able to bamboozle even the most switched on of defenders!
What's in the session? Three easy to follow sections:
Develop your player's defensive movement, in order to intercept the ball or force errors to secure the win.
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.
"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
