Does anyone have a drill to encourage U11s to come forward for a pass?

Does anyone have a drill to encourage under 11's to come forward for a pass rather than asking for the overhead pass all the time as they are 'running away' from the ball in their haste to get to the circle?

Jacqui Davis Coach, England

Where should a defending (opposing) centre stand while waiting for a centre pass by the attacking team. If possible, could you please give a reason for your suggestion. Thank you.

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

Immediate balance after receiving a pass.

When a player ( one that has played Netball for some years ) receives a pass how do you stop her from taking a giant step and taking time to control balance, instead of a shoulder width step and have control stright away?

Clearing out and re-attacking

I have a strong team of u21's who play brilliantly, except for running into one another space. Is there a drill which focuses on clearing out before re-attacking as a group?

Shoulder passing drills

Hi, I coach a team of good standard 9 and 10 year olds. I am coaching them to pass the ball up the court more quickly and with pace, using shoulder passes. Can you recommend any good drills for this. Asked using Sportplan Mobile App

shooter touched goalpost

if the goal shooter touches or leans on the goalpost while receiving her pass, can she still carry on play. I do know that a defender can not interfere with the goalpost at all.

Previous Rugby subscription

I previously subscribed to Sportplan after receiving an email with an offer for six months. I wanted Rugby League but made an error and selected Rugby which is Rugby Union so ended up cancelling my subscription. I would like to re join but all the offers I get now via email are for me to join back for Rugby and can't seem to be able to change it to Rugby League when I click on the offers. Could you please send me an offer for Rugby League so I can subscribe again. Thanks

I had someone ask me if you are allowed to do this in a game. I thought if it was accidental it was ok but if it's on purpose and something they do regularly that shouldn't be allowed. What are the rules on this? Thank you.

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.
