Double Lead (with Defence)

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Working in groups of 3 with a ball.
  • Feeder and 2 attacking players
  • The attacking players need to be staggered so that one can see the other.
  • Feeders throws the ball up to catch themselves to set the timing.
  • Both attacking players should be angled against their defenders which will give clues to where the next movement might be.
  • The attacking player in front should make a quick decision and be definite in the movement.
  • The attacking player behind offers into a different space after having read off the front attacker
  • The feeder can choose either attacking player to receive the ball.
  • That attacking player should catch the ball and turn away to face down the court.
  • The attacking player who did not receive the ball, should change direction and run down the court angled so as to be able to receive the ball in a straight line ahead of the attacking player with the ball.
  • Repeat for a specified number of times then swap in the feeder.

Progressions

  • Intensify effort of the defenders
  • Add in a defender over feeder
  • Allow feeder to cut square as a reset option

COACHING POINTS

  • Quick and definite decision so the player behind can read off and make an alternate offer
  • Even starting from behind, that offer must be definite and committed!
  • Taking feet with you on the move, using arms to run, reaching out to grab in a ball placed ahead without leaping.
  • Quick and definite decision so the player behind can read off and make an alternate offer
  • Even starting from behind, that offer must be definite and committed!
  • Feet under body at all times, using arms to run, the reaching out to grab ball in.
  • Player receiving the ball, turn in the air if possible, or pivot fully, quickly and balanced to have full vision down the court.
  •  Player who did not receive the ball, make a sharp change in direction to cut back, looking to take the next pass further down the court, ideally in a straight line.
  • Ball should be placed ahead of player in a straight-line (rather than cross court - this becomes more important when defender added).
