Warm Up (5 mins) (5 mins)

Organization - use full gym; see diagram for equipment & setup

Split into 2 groups of 8 - pinnie & non-pinnie; have them lineup single file behind each cone

Start with slow jog to first cone, then side shuffle to the right on angle to next cone, then slow jog to next cone, then side shuffle to the left on an angle to the next cone, then jog back to end of line

Repeat warmup for 4 or 5 runs - increase intensity of the run to full speed with sprint back to the end of line

Key Defending Principles:

1. Eyes on the ball

2. Speed/Angle of approach (close down)

3. Delay the forward progress (slow down)

4. Balance & Patience (jockey/sit down) - get low, knees bent & wait for poor first touch

Defending Technique(20 mins) (20 mins)

Organization:

players partner up, one with ball and one with out; pinnie and non-pinnie

use full gymnasium

Activity:

1. Player with ball is attacker, Player without the ball is defender

2. Attacker will dribble from one end of the gym to the other end without beating partner, will only dribble from right to left forcing the defender to shift his body/feet

3. Defender looks to keep the attacker in front of him without trying to win the ball; just be passive

4. When they reach the endline the attacker now becomes the defender and vice versa

Progressions:

1. Attacker looks to move more actively, changing feet, attempting moves forcing the defender the change with them; defender remains passive and doesn't win the ball

2. Defender now becomes active and tries to win the ball away from the attacker; if the defender wins the ball, returns it to attacker and they continue till they reach the endline, see how many times the defender can win the ball

Key Defending Principles:

1. Eyes on the ball

2. Speed/Angle of approach (close down) - stay about arm's length away

3. Delay the forward progress (slow down) - begin process of jockeying get low, knees bent

4. Balance & Patience (jockey/sit down) - get low, knees bent & wait for poor first touch
