1v1 Skills

Ava Y can join in and work on closing down in the middle 

Players take turns to attack and defend

3 players in each quarter block 

The attacker with the ball (1) tries to carry the ball into circle. 

The defender (2) works on channelling the attacker to their front stick and tries to make a tackle to win the ball and deny access to the circle

If they win the ball, they try to counter-attack to either sideline/cone or pass the ball back to the waiting/resting player (3)

Player 1 then becomes the defender and Player 3 starts their attack. Player 2 rests

Encourage high intensity attacks and patient defence

Unlocking Space and Counter-attack 

Objective: Goal scoring and defense are equally emphasized in this drill. The objective for each team - depending which side they find themselves - is to score / to effectively clear the ball to start a counter attack.

Focus should also be on LEADING and RE-LEADING to receive. Players need to unlock spaces by leading and other players need to lead into those spaces. Attackers outside of D (guards) need to keep scanning while off the ball for opportunities to crash ball in or drive and shoot

Plan:

1. Starting team has six players in the 25yard area attacking the Goals, the defensive team has 4 players and 2 in the "END ZONE"

2.The END ZONE,  is a safe zone, the opposing team may not enter/tackle/put pressure on the ball

3. Activation starts with a long corner (can restart at different areas for LCs) OR can start with free hit outside the 23. Variation!

4. If the defensive teams wins the ball, they must safely play the ball into the END ZONE.

5. Once the ball is in the END ZONE, the two in the END ZONE can now join and counter to goals and the team that got dispossessed must drop two players and transition into a defensive role and defend the goals with 4 players

Encourage players to use the END ZONE to change point of attack and transfer the ball

Defensive team focus on tackling outside the circle and have a mini-game-game mentality inside the circle 

Defense is always at numerical disadvantage

Keep track of who scores (Sim)

Goal = 5 points

Effective Baseline circle entry = 1 point 

Winning a PC = 1 point

1 point for slowing counter attack down and pushing it wide
