Drill - Screening the Ball (10 mins)

Organisation

Create an area 30 x 10 yards.

Split players into pairs - 2 x Red and 2 x Blue. One player from each pair acts as a server and remains on the edge of the area, as above.

Instructions

Red server passes the ball into red player, who must screen the ball from the blue defender for 5 seconds before returning the ball to the red server. Once the red player passes the ball, the blue player seeks to receive a pass from the blue server etc.

Rotate players and servers regularly.

Coaching Points:

Player receiving the ball must be on their toes - get to the ball before the defender.

When the ball is at the players feet, remain balanced, bend keness and lean slightly forward, so the player can't be pushed off the ball.

Use arms to make your body wider and stick your backside out!

Be aware of options.

Perfecting the art of spinning is fine, but only if you link with team mates.
