What are the "Corridors of play". Does anyone have any info on this?

Ask a question and have it answered by Coaches from around the world and Sportplan's team of Experts.

There are 3 corridors of play...one down the center and one each down the sidelines.  to help avoid the ball going out of play on the sidelines, try and teach your players to play down the center corridor, but to drive from the side corridors.

As you can see by my very rough diagram that the ball travels basically down the center corridor while most of the players (if not all of them) drive from the side corridors.  this can be modified in many ways, but this is the basics of playing down a corridor, and teaching your players to spread out.

Hope this is what you were asking about.

Hi Anne-Marie,  I use a warm up drill where the girls split into 3 teams where

oops sorry... just learning!

I use a warm up drill where the girls split into teams of 3 with 1 in each channel [left side of court [1]; middle of court [2]; right side of court [3]

The other teams line up behind the first team.  The first team begin to jog down the court, the second team begins once there is a space between them and the first team.  Other teams then follow.

The teams jog the length of the court and on my whistle complete a change of channel where 1 side shuffles to 2; 2 side shuffles to 3 and 3 side shuffles to 1. They then continue jogging until I blow the whistle again and they interchange again.

You can vary the footwork required in the warm up ie run backwards, skipping, bounding; zig zags.

You can also add a ball that the player pass between themselves in varying passes, and you can introduce a three man weave down court.

This drill is great for learning to understand the court, make the girls concentrate on their footwork skills and balancing on court.  It is a great starter to your training session and before you know it they will all be naturally moving into channels in the game!

Hope this helps!
