How do I teach my team to read the play?

I coach a team of U15 girls who vary in their ability. Our play from the baseline throw in is disjointed and the ball is often intercepted as a result. What is the best way to teach the girls to read each others play and operate as a smooth unit?

How do I stop my players from stepping back before driving forward?

Hi I coach a great team of under 9s and when we do a driving drill we start with "pitter patter feet" (like a very fast low jog on spot) then when i say GO they drive forward. However a lot of them step back with their foot then drive forward. Any tricks out there to get just going forward? Is it just the foot they start on like the strong foot? Or something else?

Short GS needs strategies for GK's who cover well.

Hi, have a short GS in Rep. She has practiced and applied lots of strategies including holding, clearing out and reoffering, dodging and popping in space right in front of defence to take pass, triangles, holding and turning. She has to work super hard because of her lack of height against much taller defences. For the most part, she does really well, however there are still times when she seems to get stuck doing a little sideways dance behind the GK when she comes across a GK who is particularly good at holding front position, shadowing and anticipating the dodge. Does anyway have any suggestions? I am wondering if telling her to change her starting position in the circle, slightly to one side of the circle when the ball is on it''s way down to give her a definite space to drive to and then create doubt by sometimes driving out and sometimes driving back? Would love some ideas to try.

U10's making space and passing the ball early?

Hello all, I have been coaching my u10's currently for 2 years now. They are a fabulous little team i.e. gs holds and defence box out etc however we are never winning games! They are currently playing up a year and after sitting back and watching what is going wrong I had noticed they all seem to be in one area so no-one can drive into a space to receive a direct fast ball. When this occasionally does happen the ball is not released fast enough and consequently intercepted! I was wondering if anyone has an tips on space, driving into space, and early passes! This team could be amazing if we sort this is out! Please help!!!!!!!!!

Getting players to drive down the court

Ive got 2 girls that have never played before and they keep driving to catch the ball into the thrower's space, i've tried to tell them to move out the space and even spent a whole training session teaching the team how to use space on the court but they still keep trying to catch the ball next to or just in front of the player, does anyone know any drills that encourage driving away from the ball and down the court away from the thrower?

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
