Your players should never be standing still! They should always be moving, jogging from one side of the court to the other, ready to sprint onto the ball when the opportunity arises.
To ensure your players have a high enough level of fitness - making sure they've got enough mileage in their legs to see them through the full-four quarters we've designed this high-intensity interval training session.
A tale of two halves:
The first half of this session is designed to push your players hard, getting them to jog, sprint hard and change direction.
In the second we add a ball into the mix as we test your players' ability to perform balls skills when they're physically drained.
Not only will this be interesting for you, it'll also be interesting for your players, as you both get the chance to witness how fit your team really are and how tired legs can affect their ability to perform skills such as passing and shooting!
Develop your player's ability to execute quick and efficient footwork, not only when receiving the ball, but also when creating and penetrating space.
Develop your players existing defensive skills and reinforce the key defending principles of denying space and limiting attacking options to force an error to gain possession of the ball.
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.

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.
Give it a try - it's better in the app
