Channelling is the action of a defending player preventing an attacker entering space, usually a direct line to goal
- Split your group into two teams - defenders and attackers.
Players with ball have to run around the cone and try and score. Players without ball also have to run around the cone, and then try and stop the other player scoring.
Important that the ball starts on the right.
(Defenders should avoid over running the attacker, allowing the attacker to come round their reverse).
channelling is achieved by good footwork.
Sideways body position
Stick fairly low to the ground
Body position preventing the attacker driving towards goal and from cutting back with the ball to pass infield
- Place the cone further away, to avoid the defender getting to the ball too early.
