Can you Dig it? Keep the ball alive with a Defensive Dig
This Session works on your players' ability to react quickly, get low and keep the ball alive with the Defensive Dig
The dig is an invaluable skill which no self-respecting player should be without. It enables your players to keep a point alive by preventing it from hitting the floor after the opponent has played an attacking shot into your half and also gives your side a starting point from which they can look to build their own attack!
There's more to the dig though than simply swinging your arms blindly at the ball which is what we look at in this week's session.
Your players should be thinking about their body position, their movement into the correct area and always be watching for visual cues. That way they're ready to react and can avoid having to react late to perform a dramatic, diving dig shot!
