  • I'm sleeping so much better! Hi David, just a quick message to say thank you so much for this. I have been using a CPAP machine for 3 years and I absolutely hate it. It's so uncomfortable and I sleep worse with it on than I do without it. I'm now sleeping much better thanks to your program. And my wife is so much happier too!  http://ishbv.com/snoringno/pdf

Defensive running lines to stop the right side baseline attack in field hockey

  1. 1. Defensive running lines to stop the baseline attack Derek Pappas
  2. 2. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 Defender behind the ball carrier • When the defender is behind the right side ball carrier by 1-2 steps what is the best angle to choose in order to close down the ball carrier? • This is an important defensive pattern • Good teams such as the Netherlands women or the German men can run/pass the ball down the right corner channel and then run the ball along the baseline and pass back for a shot or get a foot for a short corner
  3. 3. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 Prioritizing defensive running lines Green: high priority: make tackle, mark, or close space down Yellow: medium priority: cover space, block passing lane Red: low priority: likely to be bypassed by a ball carrier or a pass
  4. 4. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 Recognition and prioritization • Players in the defense must recognize their next responsibility to the team defense • Defenders must prioritize their next movement/action in defense based on stopping the following: • shot • circle penetration • bypass dribble • danger pass (a pass which bypasses the defense or results in a scoring opportunity)
  5. 5. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 Positioning • One national team for 20+ years has talked about getting bodies in the right position on the field at the right time.
  6. 6. Al Pacino's Inch By Inch speech from Any Given Sunday You find out that life is just a game of inches. So is football. Because in either game life or football the margin for error is so small. I mean one half step too late or to early you don't quite make it. One half second too slow or too fast and you don't quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They are in ever break of the game every minute, every second.
  7. 7. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 The direction the outside defender runs is important Running angle wrong ball carrier bypasses defender Running angle wrong ball carrier given space by the defender Running angle correct ball carrier slowly closed down by the defender
  8. 8. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 Moving as a team to defend Close down the ball carrier (player 1) Second tackler on the ball carrier (player 2 delays to block pass) Mark the receivers in dangerous positions (players 3, 4, 5) 4 3 2 1 5
  9. 9. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 The direction the outside defender runs is important 1 2 4 3 1 2 3 3 5

  21. 21. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 What actually happened Three defenders went the wrong way. The result a foot in the circle, PC, and goal. 4 3 2 1 5
  22. 22. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 What should have happened 4 3 2 1 5
  23. 23. NED (orange) has already turned the corner. ITA can’t stop the hit and will be in the danger zone if they try to. ITA is as fast as NED. ITA (blue) is running the wrong angle
  24. 24. NED (orange) goes around the corner. ITA (blue) could be behind the yellow circle if they ran a different line.
  25. 25. NED (orange) goes around the corner. Remember ITA (blue) number 3. That player ran out of the circle instead of moving to mark van As so ITA 2 can move to the baseline and block the ball carrier van As ITA 2 can’t move to the baseline until ITA 3 arrives to mark van As. But ITA 3 goes the wrong direction. And ITA 2 is stuck in no man’s land 3 21
  26. 26. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 Make the tackle outside of the circle • Why give the lane to the defender? • The back pass should be covered by another defender switching to van As. • Two hands on the stick to facilitate rapidly changing the tackling grip • get down to the baseline BEFORE the ball carrier and block their path like the AUS/GER defenders
  27. 27. Use two hands. Change the tackling grip quickly
  28. 28. Derek E. Pappas Copyright © 2015 Use the correct tackling grip on the baseline • Once the ball is inside of the circle the defender has to protect their feet and stop the ball carrier • Don’t let the ball carrier into the circle
  29. 29. Why is the stick facing up?
