Defending Against Shielding & Shielding the Ball (30 mins)

Organization:

Set up 16 cones in pairs, 8 blue and 8 red

Players should work in pairs

Activity:

Activity 1 - 15 minutes - Players should place the ball on one of the cones, the player in possession

shields the ball and the defender tries to knock the ball off the cone. Players should rotate every 3 minutes and change partners after 7 minutes. Players get a point every time they knock the ball off the cone

Activity 2 - 15 minutes - Players are placed in pairs, one defender and one attacker. Attacking players must shield the ball and move through the gates, alternating red and blue. Every time they move through a gate, they win a point. Every time they are dispossessed, the defender becomes the attacker. Players should change partners after 7 minutes

Coaching Points:

Activity 1 - low centre of gravity, defensive stance, hand out, ball furthest away from the defenders foot

Activity 2 - low centre of gravity, defensive stance, hand out, ball furthest away from the defenders foot, quick turn against the weight of the defender, change in direction and speed
