Keep the ball alive! Defensive Bump Session

Rating: 4
from 2 members ratings

This session works on your players' ability to react quickly, get low and keep the ball alive with the Defensive Bump.

The Bump (also known as a dig) is an invaluable skill which no player should be without. It enables your players to keep a point alive by passing from low and preventing the ball from hitting the floor after an attacking shot into your half and also gives your side a starting point from which they can look to build their own attack!

However, there's more to the bump though than simply swinging your arms blindly at the ball.

That's why in this session we get your players to think 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!
