number of ways to mark a shooter in the circle

Hi Cristiana,

As a defender you need to react to the shooter movement in the circle. Here's a good drill to practice defending a holding shooter. If the shooter has taken a shot, the defenders should be looking to box them out of a rebound.

Firstly, try to not let your shooter set up a holding position, however if she does... 

  • Keep moving your feet around the shooter to put pressure on her and ensure she has not free space to hold into 
  • Try to stay as close as possible but without contacting the shooter
  • Ensure you move around the shooter both in front and behind for the best chance of success 

Coaching Points:
  • Maintain and narrow foot base and use your arms to move quickly around your player 
  • Ensure you can always see the ball and the player
