  • How to simplify teaching “D”• Roles of defenders, what makes sense to players?• Decide on terminology and expectations.• Use many activities over multiple practices to get your point across.• Repetition creates Routine. Routine is the doorway to GOOD HABITS!
  • POSITIONING• Players need to be in an athletic stance, on their toes versus on the heels of their feet.• Players need to be patient on defense as to not over run the ball. The offensive player can just tap the ball away if the defensive player approaches too quickly.• Forcing to a direction, it is almost like sheparding herd to one spot on the field.
  • EXPECTATIONS 1 (pressure) 2 (cover) 3 (balance)PLAYER 1 PLAYER 2 PLAYER 3
  • EXPECTATIONSWe need to decide which way we want to forcethe offensive player when the ball is in themiddle of the field. For younger or less skilledplayers we may want to force to the sideline. Foradvanced or older players, we want to force theoffense into the defensive pressure we arecreating by our shape.
