Two hands on Interceptions

How can you get an interception with two hands and deliver the ball safely to goal. If I am getting a tip on the ball when intercepting is that down to basic ball handling skills ?

Hi Nicole,

Firstly, a tip on the ball is still good as it has disrupted play and allows potential possession for your team if the ball goes loose. However, as you know, yes you should of course try to get two hands on the ball. I would say the most important part of getting two hands on the ball is running your feet through. For example, when you are going for an interception you are likely to stop at the ball putting your hands out, leaving you only tipping the ball. However, if you continue running through and get your feet underneath yourself you will be able to get two hands on the ball and pull it in. 

If you look at this example and slow the example down, you will be able to see the defender runs her feet onto the ball and cuts the line of the ball to take the interception in front and past the attacker (pause drill at 13 seconds). I know the attacker will not be static in a game but this drill shows the basic idea and can help you practice. 

Hope this helps.
