‘The Diamond’ – Footwork with a Story

| Posted inWeekly Blog

About five years ago, I was asked to Coach a little Rep Team at Shailer Park, to compete in the first ever Under 12’s Queensland State Championships. Well, like any other small Association, nine players turned up to trial so nine got in. Definitely blank canvas stuff. I mapped out a plan so off we […]

Circle Edge Feeds

| Posted inWeekly Blog

Hitting circle edge for Centres and Wing Attacks is a skill. There are two different kinds of landing on circle edge. The double landing and then the cushion landing. Double landing involves two feet hitting circle edge simultaneously. Cushion landing is one foot then the other. My preference is to coach the later as it’s […]

Shooting Practice with an Elevated Heart Rate

Positional Skill Set

| Posted inWeekly Blog

Is there any room for the versatile Player? This was very much the banter in the past and it was a resounding no, yet times are changing. Should they change? Every position is completely different and has a different skill set. For instance, a Centre has to offload every centre pass and before they do, […]

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. […]
