Hitting Circle Edge

| Posted inWeekly Blog

Wing Attack and Centre should always try to get on circle edge to feed the ball into the Shooters. Why? Because there’s no hands over defence in front of them. This is a great little drill. Have a thrower in the circle with a ball and the worker starting at the head of the circle. […]

Flat Drives – Coach Killers

| Posted inWeekly Blog

So many times we hear the Commentators and Coaches in SSN call out Players executing flat drives. (By the way, when the Coaches ask for angles that means what’s currently happening, is flat). This really is an important part of the game that needs addressing on a regular basis. The first diagram indicates a WA […]

Passing is ball placement.  How many times have your watched your players throw behind their team mates and not in the space to where they are driving?  […]
