Coaching Points:


  • Receive the ball  properly; close or further from foot, depending on the distance to the incoming defender.  

  • Make speed, dribble with laces or outside foot.

  • Look over the ball when dribbling or use peripheral vision. 

  • When you get closer to the defender, keep the ball closer to your foot

  • Make your move at the right moment. Not too far away or too close to the defender.  

  • Explode after the move and shoot as quickly as possible. 


  • Approach the attacker quickly, slow down when getting close.

  • Stand in an angled position, low in the knees, elbows bent.

  • Move feet quickly with little steps and force the attacker to the sideline.

  • Win the ball back at the right moment.  

  • Explode after winning the ball and score as quickly as possible. 


Make two teams and keep track of the score.
