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. The worker comes off the circle, clears around the cone and hits circle edge on the side of the circle and receives a pass. Then comes around the cone again and receives the ball at the head of the circle. Repeat on the other side. Each time the worker receives the ball they try to get flush with circle edge.

To spice it up a little, have a player on the transverse line. The worker can incorporate coming off the circle then hitting circle edge as well as passing to the backline and resetting.

Such an important skill. Give it a go!
