Timing the move onto the ball (2)

I have thoroughly enjoyed using your site to help me with my coaching...
Donna, Coach

DESCRIPTION

Ball starts with feeder at the end wall. Throws ball against wall to indicate start play. W drives forward to receive the ball on the first second. This continues down the court.

Repeat drill making appropriate adjustments to the timing of the run

Swap around position on court, although try to stay close to people to whom you are likely to receive and send passes.

 > Progression: Put in a preliminary movement before the drive, but still receive on the 1st second 

> Progression: Go for the 1st second ball, but it’s not given; run through and then change direction to offer on the cut back for a straight line ball on the 3rd second

 > Progression: Mix it up; ball carrier decides whether to give the 1st second ball or make player re-offer on the 3rd second

> Progression: Add in defenders, starting passive and building; preliminary movement and change of pace with take on greater importance now. If ball not given on 1st second, then there should be 2 offers on the 3rd second from the re-offering player, and next player down the line. 

This drill could also be used to practise TURNING FULLY to open vision down the court

COACHING POINTS

  • The ball is always going in a straight line (use a line on the court to help judge)
  • The ball needs to be received ahead of the driving player, so they catch it on the move, but it is the responsibility of the driving player to get their timing right in this drill!
  • Driving player should be on their toes throughout, ready to move
  • Keep feet under the body, and no leaping onto the ball. This way, you are ready to send the next ball on in a balanced and controlled manner.
  • More able players should be turning in the air so the next pass can be an even quicker release
  • Can the girls recognise amongst themselves, who has that skill? Can they adjust their timing depending on their team-mates?
