Coaching Points

    Don't feel that you have to focus on all of the following coaching points. Pick the ones that match your session and training goals.

    • Players should aim to keep the ball moving.
    • Ball carriers should aim to pass the ball to where the receiver is.
    • Passes should be weighted in terms of distance, accuracy, and speed.
    • A pass is only complete when caught.
    • The receivers hands should be out.
    • Both the ball carrier and receiver should communicate to highlight availability, distance, location, and the time of the pass.
    • Communication should be encouraging, effective, and efficient.
    • When asked to control ball, players take risks and work outside their comfort zone.
    • It is important that players learn to handle the ball in unfamiliar ways, that way they can react and catch a pass that is: too high, too low, where the ball rolling etc.
    • Players should not view mistakes as failures, simply part of the learning process.
    • Control movements are carried out as quickly as possible before beginning passing.
    • Control tasks should allow a reasonable expectation of successful competition.
    • Differentiate your groups and allocate control tasks appropriate to the groups ability level. Every group should feel stretched but should experience success.
    • Encourage Awareness & movement.
    • Accelerate in to space when you catch the ball.
    • Vary distance between players, short and long.
    • Players pass off both hands.
    • Have fun, remember build them up!
