Shooting Circle

TS16As all coaches know, this is where we win or lose games.

Teams can play half court all day but that doesn’t improve the attack end. All the team realises the importance of finishing off so it is important to have training sessions that solely concentrates on the shooting circle. The key is how to include the rest of the team in this training session.


Circle Rotation

The Rotation is an effective way of opening up the shooting circle to create space for players to drive into.

 


 

Triangle Feeds

TriangleFeedsUsing a triangle is another option when working the ball into the circle and is an effective method of dividing the defence.

For the triangle to be successful, the attacking players should feed from the head of the circle. All players involved in feeding the shooting circle should be looking for this option regularly.


Clearing Runs

ClearingRunsA clearing run is creating space to drive back into.

For instance, a shooter would perform a clearing run as the ball is coming down the court, taking the defence with them. The shooter has now created space in the circle to drive back into and receive the ball.

 


GA Working Head of Circle
